6.813/6.831: User Interface Design & Implementation
Spring 2017 · Course Staff · MWF1 (34-101)
Fri May 12: Monday cancelled, Wednesday madness
Monday’s worktime is cancelled. The classroom is still available at that time for your group to meet, but there won’t be a nanoquiz.
Wednesday’s final class will be primarily devoted to lightning-fast “madness” presentations of your projects. Please prepare a 45-second (no more!) presentation about your project. Your presentation material may be either a live demo of the app, a Google Presentation (world-readable), or a YouTube video. Once you’ve created the presentation material, please put a link to it on this signup page. For inspiration, you can watch 30-second video previews from CHI, the premier HCI conference.
