Explain how you put the draft presentation together. Can you think of any improvements you still want to do?
I began putting the draft presentation together, by introducing my thesis topic and then showing my work in the order that I completed it throughout the semester, with user testing at the end. I need to add narration and explanations of each item. I think the layout of some pages also needs some work to create a better flow and more consistency. I also wasn't sure if I should have the raw files for each screen as its own page or I should put multiple per page. I think you get a better view if it is full screen, but there are more than 30 screens, so the presentation gets pretty long!
Is there anything left to finish? If so what, and what is your plan to finish?
It is very much a draft at this point and is missing a lot of the narration of each step. I also still need to add the visual standards guide and process journal. I want to go back in and narrate my process, decisions, and outcomes. I would also like to add comments about the next steps. I will be adding the visual standards guide as well, with refinements that I have been making since its last submission.
Describe the most useful and interesting things you have learned in this module
I think the most interesting thing that I learned this semester is that I wish I had kept my files a little better organized. It was difficult to find items that were completed in past modules because even though they were organized in that module, I couldn't always remember what module to find them in. As my thesis project becomes more refined and more items are getting closer to completion, I think it would be better to be working out of master files, instead of organizing work by module.
