CS 5/7312 (Spring 2024): Homework #3

Prof. Jeff Tian (tian@smu.edu)

Part 1: Discussion Questions

  1. In our class, we have distinguished DM from GUI. Consider the multi-sensory/multi-media UI with DM, and AR/VR, discuss how DM principles apply to such UIs differently than in GUI with DM.
  2. Select two varieties of UIs from the above, discuss if menus and forms can be used to solve some UI design problems to enhance the usability? Try to give a couple of concrete examples to illustrate your answer.

Part 2: UI Design and Evaluation

You may choose to work with the system you selected for hw#1 or hw#2 before, or pick a different system. Now perform the following for this system:

  1. Discuss if AR/VR is a part of your system. If so, how AR/VR fits into the system and other IS. If not, discuss the possibility of adding AR/VR elements/features to your system and their relation to other IS.
  2. Select a design framework and related techniques and carry out some (high/medium-level) design for this AR/VR system. You need to show some prototypes or sketches for your design, paying particular attention to how DM principles are followed/implemented in your design decisions.
  3. Select one or two evaluation techniques for this AR/VR system, and produce a detailed evaluation plan.
