The goal of this course is to provide students with the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in their coursework in a semester long project applied to a real world problem. This project will be more extensive and in-depth than course projects assignments. Students will be required to do comprehensive background research, choose appropriate Human Computer Interaction research methods and execute their projects with rigor. The project will be documented as the class progresses. Capstone projects will vary individually but all students are expected to follow a user-centered design process that may include the end-to-end process from design, prototyping, and evaluation or some subset of these steps conducted in depth, such as formative research.
