First Assignment

Yes, already, but its short.  If you have an idea that you would like to pursue in the course, be prepared to make a short “pitch” to recruit other students in class on Thursday August 28th and/or Tuesday September 2nd.  Your pitch should be short – about 2-3 minutes, laying out as best you can 1) who your user is, 2) what their pressing need is, 3) why this is an opportunity and 4) any partners or users you already have lined up. You can use this Google spreadsheet to coordinate the group formation process.

Welcome to INFO 213!

by Tapan Parikh

Welcome to INFO 213, the UC Berkeley School of Information’s graduate-level course in User Interface Design and Development. There is a tentative schedule with readings posted.  To access protected readings, you will need to request an I-School account – please let the instructor or TA know you need one after you have been admitted to the course. Please subscribe to the mailing list if you have not done so already. There is also a wait list for the course this year, so make sure to attend all classes to ensure your spot.  Your participation in the class will depend on being part of a project team by the end of the second week.  See you next week!
