Building the Human - Computer Interface
Prototype 3/Class presentation
The frozen prototype should contain the same information as Prototype 1. No specification for a subsequent
iteration is required. If you have made no changes since your second
prototype, then a new prototype is not needed (but your slides are -
You will have approximately 20 minutes for your presentation,
including any required setup time and including questions from the
audience. You should use powerpoint for your presentation, but you
may mix it with live demos of one or more of your prototype
iterations. In your presentation you should address at least the
Project presentations will be recorded on videotape so that I can
review them in the event of technical difficulties with the access
- A brief (one-slide) description of the environment in which
your system will be used.
- The required functions in the first release of your system.
This should be an updated version of the list contained in your
- An explanation of the functionality that you explored in each
prototype iteration. This might be identified by some form of
annotation on the required functions slide, or it might be
presented by walking the audience through some details for each
iteration, perhaps with a demonstration of the frozen prototype
that resulted from one or more iterations.
- A discussion of what you learned about the design of your user
interface through the prototype iteration process.
- A discussion of what you learned about the rapid prototyping
process from this experience.
- At least one idea for a way in which the course (readings,
lecture content, homework, practice exercises. and/or project)
could be improved next time the course is offered.
The prototype and the powerpoint slides for the class presentation
should be turned in by creating a Web page that links to each, linking
to that page from your project Web page, and then sending the
professor and a TA an email stating that it is there before the
beginning of class on the date that it is due. I may need to download
your slides from the Web in Australia if the shared powerpoint
function does not work correctly.
