Yearbook Submission

This exercise is intended to generate a class yearbook, and along the way, illustrate some important principals of good HCI design. The hope is that the yearbook helps students get a sense of who they might want to work with for the term project.

Note that there are no right or wrong answers (well, almost, anyway).

You will have the opportunity to review and revise your submission.

As you complete the form, can you identify helpful and problematic elements of the interface?

HCI discussion question
Describe a scenario you've experienced in which communications technology seemed to completely mess up, relative to how it should behave in an ideal world. Examples might include interrupting you at an inopportune time, failing to convey the importance of a particular message, or not allowing you to appreciate the context of the person with whom you were communicating. characters remaining.
