Task 3 Strategy and Interface


Task 3 Design Overall Course Strategy and Interface
Design a functional prototype.  According to the project plan you have submitted post a notice to the discussion board for your group when the next draft of your functional prototype is ready for review.  This draft should include at least implementation of navigation, and final versions of the interface.   Please provide the URL for your functional prototypes which can be on a wiki or website.  Or if it is not too big you may attach your functional prototype to your posted message on the message board.

Provide liberal annotation for your prototype.  Your annotation should indicate the instructional decisions you made and should reference the resources of this course and other sources to justify these decisions.

Remember when functional prototypes are posted you must critique the work of two other students or groups. Please post your comments and suggestions to the discussion board designated for the student or group you are reviewing.
