Welcome to the Class Wiki for Design and Information Architecture YSDN 3006

Important Announcements - ie. stuff you should read

  • Make sure you upload your presentation package in an organized folder in David's dropbox; denote root file as index and colour label
  • Check and make sure all your links and files are working in both group and individual pages
  • Please complete the peer evaluation as a final task for your group work

  • Bear in mind that group project should not be referenced in activity log, as this is for tracking participation components (can't be graded twice!)
  • Make sure all links that reference you work, go directly to your pages. Part of your grade for both individual participation and group work is weighted on organized and clear accessibility to your work. Remember this is a user experience course!

  • Sketchbook Exercise is no longer required. The 5% from the exercise will now be added on to Phase 3 of the Public Space Project. Feel free to try and integrate XML into you documentation site. It is the way of the future..

  • In order to grade the first phase, make sure your work is findable with an active link from your Activity Log with a link to the specific page. Also a link from Research Topics page is needed so others can index the topics.
  • Check In Class Notes for updates - Research in Design notes, Design Team
  • Reminder - finish Glossary entries updates (Section A due Oct 5, Section B Oct 9)
