Although we do not yet know how long the social distancing related to the Covid-19 pandemic will last, and regardless of the changes that had to be made in the evaluation of the June 2020 session in relation to what is provided for in this learning unit description, new learnig unit evaluation methods may still be adopted by the teachers; details of these methods have been - or will be - communicated to the students by the teachers, as soon as possible.
· Methodologies: SCRUM (méthode agile); UCD (User-Centered Design); AUCDI (Agile User-Centered Design Integration)
· Design: UCD; design thinking; creative problem solving
· Evaluation: analysis of user attitude and user behavior
· Planning, development and evaluation of digital strategies
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to :
· AA1: Describe the SCRUM and UCD methods
· AA2: Explain the integration of SCRUM and UCD by illustrating different situations throughout the lifecycle of a project (phase, level of effort, deliverables, etc.)
· AA3: Apply UCD methods and techniques that support the design and evaluation of interactive systems within project development
· AA4: Analyze and compare several deliverables (e.g. two prototypes), and choose the most efficient by justifying their choice
· AA5: Plan and evaluate development activities, and propose solutions that iteratively improve the digital strategy
