20% Face-to-face, 80% Distance learning
The literature list will be provided later.
In this study unit students learn basics of digital service design related topics: user-experience design (UX Design), interaction design (IXD), user-interface design (UI Design) and digital prototyping. Students form small design teams (3-4 persons) to work with a real client whose service is / will be strongly delivered in digital channels. Students present their work and digital service prototypes as a pitch talk in final seminar.
The client will be announced in the first contact session and final seminar.
NOTE: As students collaborate closely together, student must be present and participate each contact session to complete this study unit successfully.
The study unit is evaluated based on teamwork and individual learning diary. The team work consists 40% and individual learning diary 60% of the final grade.
The team work is formulased from visual report of the process, which includes the final service concept. The visual report should include the service design process, business model, value propotition, prototype, usertesting report and future development ideas. The visual report is evaluated based on general evaluation criteria.
The Learning diary should reflect the learning objectives of the study unit.
