in|situ| Lab - Log In


The HCI Bootcamp is not a programming course. Instead, students work in groups of four (or three) to design, evaluate and redesign an interactive system in the form of a video prototype that meets the needs of real users, in a real setting. 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 = 35%
Video prototype #1 = 20%
Final project = 45%
