EP 2 126 678 patent, Claim 1 A computer-implemented method, comprising: at a device with a touch screen display • detecting a movement of an object on or near the touch screen display; • in response to detecting the movement, translating an electronic document displayed on the touch screen display in a first direction; characterized by • in response to translating, in the first direction, the electronic document beyond an edge of the electronic document while the object is still detected on or near the touch screen display, displaying an area beyond the edge of the document; and • in response to detecting that the object is no longer on or near the touch screen display, translating the electronic document in a second direction until the area beyond the edge of the electronic document is no longer displayed.

How you will be evaluated 20% - many exercises • series of sketching exercises o replicate sketching method o apply sketching method • interface design methodologies o apply a design method • Participation o class discussions and critiques o presentations of own work Exercises are ‘on demand’ vs. schedules

How you will be evaluated 10%: sketchbook • progressive descriptions of visual ideas •

How you will be evaluated 10%: sketchbook • progressive descriptions of visual ideas • illustrates application of methods taught in class • habitual use – quantity!

How you will be evaluated 10%: portfolio • professional-looking visual summaries of designs •

How you will be evaluated 10%: portfolio • professional-looking visual summaries of designs • professional portfolio o illustrative of work o archives of code and supporting documents o summary of accomplishments. • 3 visual summaries (1 / project) • 1 professional portfolio (web plus print)

You are a Designer, not a Technician • Sketchbook • carry one constantly • collect / generate / develop a multitude of ideas • Tools • see what is out there • your media choice affects what you create • Aesthetics • they matter – being a ‘dweeb’ is no excuse • Critique • challenge all designs you see • present yours – don’t be shy! • Portfolio • collect your works • be proud
