Mockup Review Logistics

before the review, review details, after the review

Before the review
Please email the course instructor your product name by no later than 9 PM Wednesday.

All presentations will be pre-loaded onto a single presentation computer: a representative of each section must show up in the Pappalardo lab at your section's scheduled time between 2:40 and 5:10 to load your section's presentation onto the computer, and to check that media are working correctly. You will not be able to make changes to your slides after this time.

You may use either powerpoint, keynote, or pdf files for your presentations. If you are using powerpoint be sure that linked videos are exported as a package to the presentation computer. Keynote embeds all media files automatically.

Work in the Pappalardo will stop at the usual 4:45 PM, but you will be able to have access to setup your team area until 6:45 PM.

Presenters should test AV in the presentation room (34-101) between 6:00 and 6:45. It is important that the actual presenters check the materials in the room. Please ensure that all AV testing is finished before 6:45. Remember that the presentation in 34-101 is slides only. Mockups remain in Pappalardo lab for the second phase of the review (see below).

Make sure that your team area in Pappalardo lab is clean and your mockups are ready for demonstration and testing. If you need to demonstrate in an area other than your team space, please discuss with the course instructor before the end of Tuesday. Your will also be asked to do a single take, two minute video demonstration/explanation using your mockups (2 minutes per concept). Please plan and practice for the video in advance.

Review details
The mockup review will start at 7:15 PM sharp and finish by 10:00 PM on the date indicated in the course schedule. The review is divided into two parts, as described below.

Part 1: Structured presentation
During the first hour of the review each section will have 6 minutes to present critical questions and findings for their two concepts (three minutes per concept). Each section should have its own separate presentation file.

The presentation order is shown on the right. A computer projector will be available in the presentation room (34-101).

Present a clear product vision, its critical risks, key findings, and remaining concerns. Please include a preliminary product contract with your key ~3-6 customer needs, product attributes, and specifications. Things to make very clear are: what is the product, who will use the product and why, who will buy it and why, and with what user group you will be testing. You should also have a grounded number for a target selling price—what the purchaser is wiling to pay.

Physical models will not be part of this structured presentation, and there will be no questions after each presentation. Up to one minute will be allowed between sections for transition.

All students should plan on attending the first portion of the presentations since seeing what the other sections are working on is an important part of the learning experience.

Part 2: Informal testing and discussion:
After the formal presentations are complete, faculty will promptly move to the Pappalardo lab to experiment with your physical mockups and ask questions. Ten minutes will be allowed for the transition to the Pappalardo lab.

Instructors and mentors will be divided into 8 review teams and assigned to different sections. Every 10 minutes the instructors will switch to a different section according to the rotation schedule below. Spend 5 minutes on each of your section's concepts. The rotation is structured to that you will have 10 minutes on, then 10 minutes off. In total, you will have four 10 minute question and answer sessions.

All students in your section do not need to participate in the Pappalardo lab portion of the review but high participation will help get the most out of the feedback. There should be section members to demonstrate and discuss the mockups, and at least two persons to record notes during the feedback session. The notes should be distributed to your team.

Photographs and a two minute video explanation of each concept mockup will be taken during one of your breaks, as noted in the rotation schedule.

After the review
Preliminary feedback will be provided in class on Friday and you will receive written comments by email over the weekend. Presentation videos and slides will be put on the results page so that instructors can provide more detailed feedback over the weekend. At least three instructors will be assigned to provide additional feedback for your section.

You may also arrange to view the presentation video with your team communication instructors for additional feedback about your presentation.
