Lern- und Lehrformen

The exercise is split up into two major phase. "Design groups" will be formed for the first two stages. Thereafter new "technical groups" will be formed to work on the technical realization.


The grading process consists of four stages:


  • Design of the user interface (including elaboration): 20 %
  • Presentation of the user interface: 10 %
  • Technical realization (including elaboration): 40 %
  • Presentation of the technical realization: 20 %
  • "Lessons learnt": 10 %


After the presentation of the user interface a jury will select one design proposal for the following technical realization. Several groups will realize the selected design proposals using different technologies (as mentioned above).
