Sketch Model Review
The presentation contributes to a portion of your shared section-wide grade, and all course instructors will participate in the review process. Each lab section (two sections per team) gives a separate presentation. The goal of the presentation is to inform classmates and instructors about concepts that your section is thinking of, and to obtain helpful design feedback early in the process. The sketch model ideas will also be posted on a crowd-sourcing platform to obtain feedback from a large number of real, potential users.
You will use feedback from this review to decide which concept will be pursued in more detail for the mockup review. The exercise will also help you learn how to present concepts in a formal design review. The word 'concept' is used to imply that we are no longer just proposing big-picture ideas, but we are beginning to flesh out and explore how the ideas might be implemented.
Before working on your sketch models, you may want to review the sketch modeling tutorials.
A video of your presentations will be made available on the course website.
Key presentation elements:
Relevant technical, market, customer needs, and benchmarking data must also be provided. Some examples of sketches and sketch models are provided on the right. You can also view sketch models from other years in the gallery (select a project and then select the sketch models tab). A list of presentation tips and examples (.pdf) has also been prepared by the communication instructors.
Be sure to also check the detailed setup logistics for the presentation.
Instructors will attend the review and meet immediately following the review to discuss each section's work and rank order the presentations. Your section instructor will determine your grade.
