Week 11: Goodbye Usability Testing, Hello Final Project

I’m headed to the airport in a few hours and I still haven’t packed my suitcase, so this update will be short and sweet. Next week we will finish up the Usability Report assignment, which is due on Thursday. Bring a rough draft of your report to class on Tuesday (in HTML format) so we can conduct a brief peer-review session. We will also be talking about the Final Project, so you and your team should hold your first meeting (and your first client meeting) before you come to class on Tuesday. In class we’ll talk about project management, assigning roles in a group project, and working with clients.

On Thursday, we’ll debate the merits of starting a new site from scratch or using an open-source template. Please visit the sites listed on the Calendar before you come to class and be prepared to talk about what you like (or don’t like) about this approach to web design.

I will be out of town until Saturday night, and I’m not sure how much email access I’ll have. If you encounter problems with your usability report or your final project, feel free to email me — just be patient waiting for a response.

See you next week!
