Plagiarism is presenting somebody else’s work as your own. It
includes: copying information directly from the Web or books without
referencing the material; submitting joint coursework as an individual
effort; copying another student’s coursework; stealing coursework

• Detailed Specification
• Scenario
People increasingly employ technology-enabled smart objects in their personal
home such as internet-enabled thermostats, security systems, motorized blinds or
networked light bulbs to give just a few examples. Frequently these systems are
from different manufacturers.
You have been commissioned to create a concept and prototype for a smart voice
controlled hub for all smart devices in a home. The hub is supposed to enable
people to control all smart objects in their home by connecting them to your smart
hub. Your smart hub needs to consist of one or more physical devices that listen
for voice commands and a mobile application for the configuration of the entire
smart home system. You do not need to create the physical component of your
product but you need to provide a basic visualization of your overall solution.
You can decide on a target audience for your device. However, your design and
research activities need to be in alignment with that choice. The requirements that
you generate through your research need to be justified and your report needs to
provide a good overall narrative not a number of disjoint sections. Your writing
needs to be supported by at least 12-15 academic references (not blogs or online
tutorials or the like). References ought to be formatted in Harvard style.
o Report (3000-4000 words) uploaded as a pdf file.
o High-fidelity prototype uploaded in a zip file.
• Grading Criteria
To gain a distinctive grade (70+)
o The report will
a) have a clear structure and coherent argument throughout, address
all the required areas, clearly identifying the key issues and
displaying critical analysis;
b) offer full support for all points made.
o The report to be well written throughout, and fully adequate to express ideas.
o The high-fidelity prototype will be well constructed and linked exactly to the
points made in the report.
To gain a grade between 60-69
o The report will
a) have a clear structure and coherent argument throughout, address
all the required areas, clearly identifying the key issue and
displaying critical analysis;
b) offer support for most of the points made.
o The report to be largely well written throughout, and adequate to express
o The high fidelity prototype will be well constructed and linked exactly to the
points made in the report.
To gain a grade between 50-59
o The report will
a) show some attempt at a clear structure and critical analysis although
the line of argument may not always be clear and coherent. All of
the required areas are attempted.
b) offer some support for the points made.
o The report may not be well written, but will be adequate to express ideas.
o The high fidelity prototype will link to the majority of the points made in the
To gain a grade between 40-49
o The report will
a) be badly organised and the line of argument will be unclear and
incoherent. There will be a significant amount of irrelevant material;
most of the required areas will be attempted.
b) offer inadequate support for the points made.
o The report not be well written, language may be adequate to express some
o The high fidelity prototype will link to some of the points made in the report.
To fail
o The report will
a) show little or no shape or direction, be badly organised and the line of
argument unclear and incoherent. Very few key issues will be
identified and there will be a significant amount of irrelevant
material. Only a couple of the required areas will be attempted.
b) offer little or no support for the points made.
o The report will not be well written; language will be inadequate to express ideas.
o The high fidelity prototype will either not be attempted or bear little resemblance to
the points made in the report.
• Assessment Criteria
The relative weightings for the criteria are as follows and will take into consideration the
student demonstration of their work:
Logical structure of the report and appropriate referencing in Harvard style of relevant
background literature (journal papers, conference papers, academic books) throughout
the report.
A discussion of different frameworks for Interaction Design followed by a justification
for a framework that has been used for the design task of this coursework. Include a
discussion and visual representation of the design process that has been followed.
Evidence that appropriate research activities have been carried out to generate
requirements for the Interaction prototype. There needs to be a clear link,
documentation and justification for each core requirement. Relevant background
literature (e.g. cognitive psychology, interaction design theory) needs to be integrated.
At the end of the section you need to provide a summary of your prototype and how it
will work.
A presentation of a detailed concept for an empirical research study that uses your
prototype to test at least one assumption that you have made when designing your
prototype. In this step you need to present the design of a research study including the
question(s) that your research study attempts to answer, who the participants of your
study will be, how the study will be run and how you will analyse the data. You do not
need to run the study but you need to create all necessary instruments and
documentation that is required to run the study.
A conclusion drawing together the key facts, critical reflections on the limitations of the
work that has been carried out and a discussion of potential future work if the project
would be developed further.
High-fidelity prototype of an interaction device
Clear links between coursework report and the corresponding prototype so that design
decisions are well documented.
Evidence of the effective and successful application of Interaction Design principles to
create a prototype that can be used to test core concepts of your design and that is
suitable as a learning tool for researchers and designers.
If the pass mark is not achieved the student will be referred until the next assessment
point and although the coursework would be different the indicative marking criteria
would be the same.
