Final Presentation Guidelines & Grade Breakdown

For the final part of this assignment each group will give a formal presentation of their site re-design to the class. Please present as if you were presenting to a client.

As with any presentation given to a client, remember that the on-screen portion of the presentation should be formatted for easy reading on-screen. For example, you should generally use short blocks of text in bullet points rather than long narrative paragraphs of text for easy scanning.

Use the following format for your presentation:

  1. Title Page (example: “Willy’s Widgets Site Redesign by Group 1, May 20, 2014”)
  2. Introduction to the team with short bios
  3. Briefly summarize the research you’ve done for this site and what you’ve learned
  4. Explain the problem you’re trying to solve and the goals for the site
  5. Show the original site and point out what could be improved (4 pages max)
  6. Show the pages you’ve redesigned and talk us through the user experience (i.e. land on home page, browse for item, see details, add to cart and check out)
  7. Conclusion and next steps: Use this as an opportunity to remind us once again of the problem and sell us on why your solution is successful.

Your complete presentation should run about 15 minutes. I recommend rehearsing your presentations as a group.

Part of your final grade will be based on how cohesive this presentation works as a whole as well as your individual contribution for the in-class presentation.
