Aims and objectives

This unit of study aims to introduce fundamental design and technical methodologies in designing interactive outcomes for mobile devices. Students will identify and apply industry best-practice, to inform project development; this knowledge may be applied to commercial outcomes in the design, web and computer game industries.
After successfully completing this unit, students should be able to:
1.Outline the design process required to author an application across multiple platforms in a project document
2. Plan and manage deployment strategies by publishing to a mobile device
3. Assess the strengths, limitations and constraints of different mobile platforms using simulations
4. Use appropriate authoring tools to produce a design outcome for mobile devices
5. Evaluate the user interaction and experience design of a mobile platform outcome by applying user testing methodologies.
