Refers to the comments and feedbacks to revise the E-learning Proposal project essay that I have attached below and the PPT presentation that I did on top
of it top help understand my proposal and project as a whole.
Referring to the feedback and comments to revise the entire essay.
Assignment: Take the e-learning product you proposed as the previous paper assignment to the next level of detailed design, including screen-by-screen
walkthroughs (in the proposal) and a demonstration (in the presentation) showing what the user experience will be like for a sample user or users to use the
The demonstration does not need to be programmed—screen-by-screen PowerPoint is fine for the presentation, with screen-by-screen mockups in the
proposal—and as with the midterm, wireframes/photos/etc. are fine, professional graphics are not expected.
Please take any feedback from the midterm into account in doing this assignment. Overall, the assignment is essentially “assume your midterm proposal
was accepted by the client—though perhaps with comments and requested changes”—and now you’re moving forward, getting a significant level deeper into
the user experience.
• Design and Rationale Document
• Presentation (given online via Zoom)
Documents and presentations should include the following elements (please note that some of these were also covered in the midterm proposals. It’s fine to
borrow from your midterm proposal wherever it is appropriate, there will likely be some pieces borrowed and/or condensed from the midterms, and some
parts revised since the midterm). Your audience here is again members of your client or funding organization, but you don’t want to assume that the
audience remembers your initial proposal very well, even though I will really be your audience and I will be very familiar with your proposal—but even for me, a
little reminder context will help.
The required elements are:
• Descriiption of Problem Faced – the setup and background for this are usually much shorter than in the midterm—just enough to provide context
• Descriiption of the Target Audience (Primary and, if any, Secondary)
• Goals of the Project – be specific about what users of your product will be able to do better, thanks to your product’s existence.
• Product Concept – high-level, 1-2 paragraph overview of the product
• Product In Use – how this will be used by the target audience(s)–when will they use it? Where will they use it? On what devices?
• Descriiption of Overall Product Scope – How big is this product (how long will it take someone to go through it)? What specific skills does it improve or allow
learners to acquire?
• Detailed Product Walkthrough/Demonstration of 2 Sample User Interactions – this section is the most crucial part of the assignment; it should be in a
“walkthrough” form in the document version, showing sample screens/wireframes and annotations that tell the reader the story of a sample user experience
or experiences; in the class presentations, you’ll want to spend a significant part of your time giving a demonstration of your product. Demonstrations can be
screen-by-screen PowerPoint demos; programming is not required—but whatever method you use, you want to tell a compelling story and make sure your
screens/wireframes demonstrate the user experience. They don’t have to be pretty, but they should show the complete layout and potential user actions, in
the step-by-step way that the demos we’ve seen in class do.
• Rationale – why you think this is an approach that is well-suited to the problem, why you selected this learning methodology/methodologies, how this will
benefit the organization.
Note: Documents should be complete and professional, written with an introduction and appropriate transitions, and written as if you needed to convince a
senior VP at your client organization of the worth of your project.
Document Length: 6-10 pages of text, plus any number of pages for screen wireframes (it often works best to include the wireframes in the document,
annotated). The number of pages for wireframes, in addition to the 6-10 pages of text, is typically anywhere from 10-20, depending on how many wireframes
and how many fit on a page (which may vary by project).
Presentation length: 15-20 minutes plus time for questions, as on the midterm. The presentation should give enough background that someone who did not
see your midterm presentation or read your document can understand what your project is about, but no more than that. The presentation’s focus should be
a demonstration of the project’s design, walking your audience through sample user interactions.
Key Evaluation Criteria:
• Product design: Is it effective? Is it engaging? Does it serve a need? Is it an appropriate style for its audience(s)? Is it “usable”? Will it improve the target
• Articulation of the proposal/presentation of goals, audience, and rationale
• Presentation of compelling story in the proposal and presentation describing the product
Grading: Document and Presentation will be given a single, unified grade.
