Mockup Review Logistics
Before the review
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.
Part 2: Informal testing and discussion:
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.
