Week 11: User-Centered Design

Now that we’ve discussed the assignment details for the Best Practices Article and the Client Project, you should begin making progress on both assignments. I’ll be traveling Wednesday through Sunday, but while I’m away, you should meet with your Unit #4 team, confirm the details of your project with your client (if you haven’t already), and draft the Memorandum of Understanding that will govern your work between now and the end of the semester. If you run into any problems while I’m gone, please let me know — I’ll be checking email every day.

For the rest of the semester, we’ll be working our way through the client project, and we’ll be using our second textbook to help us take a “user-centered design” approach to developing these sites. Here’s how we’ll dive in to that topic next week:

Good luck meeting with your clients!
