Design and create a multimedia interface

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria

Elements and Performance Criteria


Performance Criteria


Plan an interface design


Obtain and study the project brief, navigation plan and technical specifications for a multimedia product


Discuss the concept and specifications with relevant personnel to identify the design concept or metaphor


Identify the budget, technical and resource constraints to ensure that all requirements are considered during the design phase


Clarify the client and user/audience needs in order to identify the format of the interface to be used


Develop the interface


Visualise the concept and develop preliminary sketches


Develop and present a series of roughs to relevant personnel and discuss the various merits for selection


Continuously evaluate new ideas and incorporate them as appropriate


Develop a final detailed sketch taking into consideration all ideas generated


Gain approval from relevant personnel to ensure that the interface meets all requirements


Create the interface


Use appropriate industry standard software to create screen design, applying visual design principles to all screen elements


Ensure all elements, screens, transitions, sequences, pages and buttons are integrated to conform to the basic design concept or metaphor


Ensure all elements conform to the specified technical requirements


Develop a prototype version of the interface and experiment to ensure its utility


Evaluate the interface


Present, discuss and evaluate the interface design prototype to relevant personnel, obtaining and noting detailed response, comments and any required changes


Incorporate design changes to complete interface design


Obtain final agreement from relevant personnel for finished design to ensure that the design brief has been achieved
