Puzzles and Prototypes
Much like a traditional artist creates quick sketches that influence the masterpiece, students will generate rapid prototypes to explore interactive solutions and games. Working individually or in teams they will create weekly solutions or iterations to design puzzles posed by current media trends and news events. Prototyping activities will rely on research and testing in the design process. Various methods covered will include paper prototyping, mind mapping, participatory design, mini-game format, agile development, etc. Evaluating pros and cons of methods and results, students will learn to match method to scope and complexity of a design problem.
