This is NOT a programming course. Instead, students will work in groups of three or four to design, evaluate and redesign an interactive system, represented as a video prototype.

All in-class and homework exercises are required to complete the final project, so class attendance and participation is essential. Students will present the final video prototype to an external jury.

Grading:

Class participation and exercises = 40%
Final project = 60%
