“IDE” is what the students called the 3rd Year CoCA elective 222.392 Interactive Digital Experience.
In IDE students investigate how interactive technology can be used to enhance a location-specific visitor experience. Last year we worked with Te Papa as a ‘live client’ and hope to do that again this time.
The paper has two briefs. The first stage is to design and visualise a personalised mobile guide for the institution. In this case the digital interface with the space travels with the user.
Stage two extends this experience to a detailed interpretive media for one display item – so now it is the space that provides the interface.
Students are encouraged to explore emerging technologies with an emphasis on UX and innovation and can use mobile devices, haptic, motion sensing, audio input or output to create a future focused solution.
This paper follows on very well from 197.238 Interaction and Interface and 197.379 Experience Design. It also extends learnings from the core options of 222.357 web and app.
Here are some snapshots from the 2015 student work:
