Prep for Final Presentations

Announcements

Final Presentations

Let’s take a few minutes to discuss your final presentations.

What’s the purpose of your presentation?

  • As a team, you are storytellers
  • Together, your mission is to construct an engaging and convincing argument demonstrating the value of your interactive solution

To achieve this, you’ll need to work together, each team member speaking with confidence and authority about a component of your team’s solution.

Final Presentation Elements

  • What? What problem is your solution addressing?
  • Who? Who are the stakeholders?
  • How? How does your solution address the problem?
  • Why? Why did you take this approach?
  • When? When could your partner begin using your solution?

Exercise

Together with your team, review your team pages & the project deliverables you’ve generated over the course of the semester. Organize your deliverables against each of the elements listed above (i.e. User Personas & User Stories might map to the Who, the Usability Reports could map to the Why, etc).

Assignment

  • Together with your team continue organizing your deliverables from the semester against the elements listed above
  • As a team, agree amongst yourselves who will be responsible for presenting which elements
  • Individually, begin organizing how you would like to present your section
  • Next week we’ll begin constructing your presentations

Project Implementation Documentation

Announcements

Demos!

Let’s pick up where we left off last week and see where you are with your projects.

Documentation

Why document your projects?

What kinds of things should you document?

  • Equipment requirements
  • Architectural requirements
  • Software requirements
  • Accounts
  • Maintenance procedures
  • Update procedures
  • Expenses and estimated budgets
  • Others?

Exercise

Project Documentation List

For each member  on your team, take turns role playing that you are your client partner. As the client partner, imagine what you would need to know if you were to actually try to implement your team’s project. Start a list with the first role player, adding to it with each additional role player.

Draft Project Implementation Documentation

  • Create a new Google Drive document and title it Project Implementation Documentation
  • Scour over your list, looking for common themes
  • For each theme, create a heading in your document; for example, if your project requires usernames and passwords to be able to use it, include a section on user names and passwords
  • Other headings might include, hardware requirements, software requirements, maintenance requirements, marketing and promotion, etc.

Open Discussion & Project Workshop

Continue working on your projects.
