Case Study

Tourism Malaysia is currently planning to promote Kuala Lumpur by implementing mobile


apps promotion through interactive walkthrough applications. Interactive walkthrough is a
guided tour that offers interactive navigation to the users and the look and feel of what they are
expecting to explore at the chosen area.

Initially, for PART 2 of the assignment, you are required to design the prototype for this app
by choosing any ONE (1) area that is listed. You may choose an Interactive Walkthrough
Prototype for:
1) Forest Research Institute (FRIM), Kepong 8) National Science Centre
2) National Museum, Kuala Lumpur 9) KL City Gallery
3) Petrosains, KLCC 10) KL Butterfly Park
4) KL Tower 11) Planetarium
5) National Zoo 12) Central Market
6) National Bank Gallery 13) National Art Gallery
7) KL Bird Park 14) KL Craft Complex

Using the mobile technology, this application can be used to and not limited to only, find their
ways/navigating at the area interactively, layout of the place, getting information about the
area, how to get there, the events/activities/attractions, taking/uploading/downloading videos
and/or photos and sending comments or suggestions related to the application. You may add
any other suitable functions.

Part 2 - Group Prototype Design Walkthrough (Presentation: Week 13 & Submission:


Week 14)
You are to design and produce an interface design prototype for an interactive walkthrough
prototype. You need to work in a team of 4 members, or in exceptional cases, 3 members.

Do note that the purpose of this assignment is on the user interface and what goes into the entire
design process which will give it a certain look and feel. A fully functional system is not
expected to be produced.

However, some limited functionality (such as dummy output) is expected in order to


demonstrate the ability of the system. Database backend are not necessary.

You are to apply your knowledge on usability engineering lifecycle in designing usable
interface for this product. Following the tutorial sessions in class, the team will work through
the following activities: -
 User requirement analysis – produce user profiling report and apply at least 2
methods of data gathering technique. One of it should be Ethnography.
 Usability goals and competitive analysis which includes to highlight on any Design
Principles by Jacob Nielsen, Donald Norman or Ben Schneidermen or other relevant
accepted guidelines.
 Prototype Walkthrough which includes Designs sketches and prototyping – applying any
1 UX design tool of your choice.
 Testing of designs by implementing DECIDE Framework, Heuristic Evaluation and
Usability Testing.
 Final presentation of final interface design and testing analysis.

You are to implement the final design using a tool of your choice, conduct usability testing on
the design, present your findings and document the entire process.
Complete documentation must be produced to contain all the activities that the development
team went through in producing the system's interface, as well as a signed workload distribution
matrix.

Throughout the development cycle, the team is required to submit a set of minutes and a
progress report every two weeks. This will be from the onset of the assignment and is to be
included as part of the documentation submission.
