The purpose of the project module is to introduce the students in collaboration with users in an interaction design process, where the focus is on involving future users early in the process based on needs and context, and crucial emphasis is placed on empirical assessments of products designed, and focus on an iterative design process. In addition, the goal is for the process to be translated into an interactive prototype. In the project, emphasis is placed on working with both qualitative and quantitative methods in the collaboration with users, and the developed interactive product must be able to be anchored in the empirical work with users. The project subject could be diverse, but it should be strived for that the users and the context of use are available for the project. As part of the project module, a documentary video must be prepared that depicts the project's problem, design process and solution.
The student is expected to spend 27.5 hours per ECTS, which for this activity means 412.5 hours.
