Question[edit]
Five juniors majored in Information Technology are taking a course “Human-Computer Interaction Design” this semester. The instructor of this course wants to apply PBL into this class to motivate students and enhance their critical thinking and collaboration skills.
This five students are all interested in game interaction design; they’ve taken some related courses such as “3D Modeling, Animation, and Special Effects”, “Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator”, “Web Interactivity”, “Video Game Programming”. However, they lack experience in communication with clients and don't know exactly how to gather requirements and conduct usability tests, and unfortunately, these are not the teaching contents of this class.
Based on the above information, please help the instructor design a PBL problem for this group of students.
