This Course focuses on understanding the process of designing interfaces and experiences for users. The objective of the course is to encourage software engineers and other developers to think about the users of the systems they create rather than just the functionality.

A template for the assignment in gitlab https://gitlab.ecs.vuw.ac.nz/simon/swen303-2019t1-course/wikis/Assignment1Example . This gives you a look at the sort of things that could be done for the assignment.

28/2/2019: Announcements

We will use the forum to announce events during the semester.

User Interfaces are part of the wider area of User Experience. The course takes seriously the concept that errors made by users can usually be traced back to poor design.

The course is entirely internally assessed, based on three assessments. The first assignment is designed to focus on the users and their requirements for a system. The second assignment is the first iteration of designing an interface to satisfy the requirements identified in assignment 1. The larger project is a group project where the proposed interfaces are evaluated and joined to create a single prototype that is tested and revised.

Students will be able to ask questions in the SWEN303 Forum. Documentation will be submitted using the submission system.
