Course Description

CSE 481K - HCDE 496 is the second quarter in a two-quarter-long design and implementation sequence held jointly between CSE and HCDE. In winter, CSE490D and HCDE419 students formed interdisciplinary project groups to scope and design projects for resource-constrained environments. This quarter students are implementing and evaluating many of those project concepts. The emphasis is on group work leading to the creation of testable realizations and completion of initial evaluations of the software and hardware artifacts produced.  Students work in inter-disciplinary groups with a faculty or graduate student manager.  Groups will document their work in the form of posters, verbal presentations, videos, and written reports.
