Equips students with the tools to design immersive interactive systems for the internet-of-things (IoT). Students will learn the difference between traditional user experience design and user experience in IoT. Students will be required to implement a small interactive system for pervasive and immersive user experience.
Topic 1: User experience design for the internet-of-things (IoT)
Topic 2: Overview of IoT components (networks and things) and their effects on user experience design
Topic 3: Understanding people, activities, context and technologies
Topic 4: Product information and strategies
Topic 5: Interface and interaction design
Topic 6: Cross-device interactions and inter-usability
Topic 7: Interoperability
Topic 8: Responsible IoT design
Topic 9: Designing data visualisations for immersive interactions such as virtual reality
Topic 10: Iterative design: Prototyping and learning
Topic 11: Designing complex and interconnected products
Topic 12: Recent trends in user experience design
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
