Business Information Systems Projects
Unit Coordinator: Mike Seymour
INFS3080 extends on the learnings of concepts learnt from INFS2040 about project management into a more applied form with UI/UX design.
"The main difference is the emphasis in defining the scope of a project, where the process of gathering requirements, understanding who your customers are, identifying issues to prototyping a solution is explored in fine-grain details.
This unit will teach you how integral the aforementioned aspects are when planning a project that is impactful in terms of achieving its goals."
Assumed Knowledge: INFS1000 and INFS2040
The unit is highly practical, which means you will be required to draw out storyboards and learn new software to help prototype solutions atop of usual consulting skills and work.
Students will be expected to use Adobe Xd, which will be a major part of the group assignment – attending the lecture and asking questions will be integral in doing well.
Things to Consider Before Enrolling:
The course is fun and different to other INFS unit in terms of applications and understanding of UI/UX. It is beneficial to form groups early as learnings from class activities are applicable to requirements in the group project, particularly in the first 5 weeks of the course. Students wishing to understand more on how technology can change a customer’s perception and interaction with brand should consider taking this unit.
Individual Assignment (20%)
This involves a series of small tasks which require you to apply learnings from lectures on ideating, requirement gathering, storyboarding and designing customer profiles and journeys.
Group Project (40%)
Applying your learnings from the individual tasks, the assignment surrounds generating a digital prototype demonstration to a real-world case. You will be required to use Adobe Xd to create a high-fidelity prototype and present this at the end of the project.
Final Exam (40%)
This involves four short response questions on the applications of the different frameworks learnt throughout the unit.
