The purpose of the project module is to introduce the students to designing alternatives, where students work with one case that defines requirements for a future interaction design, and where the work consists of identifying and designing alternatives to that case. The focus is on both the process and the product in connection with the preparation of these design alternatives, and work is done with both constructive and experimental approaches in the process, including different approaches to prototyping. In the project, special emphasis is placed on working with a creative and innovative approach to alternatives, so that the student meets some of the challenges in generating and developing design alternatives that covers a larger design space. The project module case specifies a number of design requirements within a given area, e.g. e-commerce or social media, and builds to use of a particular technology, e.g. web.
The student is expected to spend 27.5 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 412.5 hours.
