Early Formative Evaluation using a Paper Mockup

Due: October 27

Explanation of Lab

This lab is a continuation of lab 3 and a preparation for the project. In this lab you will be designing the user interaction for your project for one or more scenarios, building a paper mockup (also called a low fidelity prototype ) of these scenarios and then using it to conduct an early formative evaluation of your design.
