Week 15 – Topics

In class lab time

Please take Department survey

1. Review the Project Objectives & Goals

Be sure that your final project conveys the perception you’re going for… make any needed changes or revisions.

Perception: Affordable, Current, Savvy, Credible, Leading Edge, Reliable, Accredited, Approachable, Friendly, Personable, Knowledgeable, Expert, Cutting Edge Technology, Innovative, Hip, Open, Welcoming, Positive, Diverse, Inclusive

Goals for the Design Technology Department website

  • Enhance recruitment and the awareness of the Design Technology department by highlighting the AET campus, the relevancy of the programs, (Entertainment Technology, Graphic Design, Interior Architectural Design) and showcase the work of the students.
  • Create a sense of community where students, prospective students, faculty and alumni can keep informed and involved with the Design Technology department.
  • Focus attention on career placement and networking for students and on building a community of alumni who remain active with their respective programs.

Can I find the following easily on your final project website?

  • Student Gallery
  • Events (Calendar)
  • Jobs
  • Alumni
  • Social Media
  • Student Clubs
  • Contact info
  • Location of the AET

Deliverable: All supporting deliverables from Weeks 1-8

Final Presentations – Thursday, December 15, 6:30pm

Keep these things in mind when working on your presentation

  • Every team will have approximately 15 minutes plus a 5 minute Q & A
  • Every team member must speak during the presentation.
  • Be sure to stand up when possible and project your voice. I want to be able to hear you from the back of the room!
  • Have an outline of the nformation your team is presenting. Practice! Tell a story. Good presentations are about good storytelling. (You can use the screencast to practice, but you will do your presentation live)

Be sure you cover the six things I outlined below. While going through the six points, focus on the “story.” Do not merely click through the pages of the site… give us context for your work!

  1.  What where the objectives (problems and issues) for the project? What did the client (The Design Technology Department) want for the redesign? What about the students?
  2. How did your team solve these problems and issues through your design?
  3. Be sure to show some documentation (but not all, remember you only have 15 minutes!): personas, sitemaps, wireframes etc. Make it part of the story you’re telling.
  4. Talk about the competitive analysis and what you discovered there.
  5. How did you select the color palette and the layout for the site?
  6. The prototype for the SMC mobile Web/App must be a part of your presentation.
