The following marking schedule will be used :
Description of functionality
A description of what it does, its aims, etc.
Explanation of technology used including inputs and outputs
A detailed review of the technology uses including sensors/inputs and actuators/outputs.
Evaluate its effectiveness
An evaluation of the effectiveness of the example considering how it fits into the theory of interactive systems as covered in the lectures and in your additional reading.
