Project Description

This assignment requires you to plan and

design the database and user interface of an

information system for a given scenario. It also

requires you analyse and critique the

document your scenario is drawn from.

Your tasks

Choose one of the scenarios provided. Locate

the brochure corresponding to the scenario

from Blackboard. You need to carry out the

following fourtasks for your scenario.

Task 1: Database planning

Database planning: design an information

database prototype that can serve as an

information resource for the users in your

scenario. Your database plan should contain

the following components.

1. Information gathering.

2. Identify the entities/objects.

3. Use a visual modelling tool (like ERD’s)

to model the entities/objects.

Document your design in text andwith

diagrams (approximately 900 words).

Task 2: Interface design

Based on the principles discussed in the Learning object-Human Computer Interaction, design and document

a prototype of an interface for your proposed database (approximately 600 words).

This involves:

• Providing three to five illustrations that show your interface design

• Align your design to the HCI design principles and discussing how your design relates to them

(design principles: visibility, constraints, feedback, consistency and affordance)

For further information about the Task 2 requirements, please download the Task 2 information pack.

Task 3: Information Analysis

You need to carry out a semiotic analysis of the

document your scenario is drawn from. Choose

two attributes from one of the three semiotic

disciplines of pragmatics, semantics and

syntactic and analyse the documentin terms of

these attributes (approximately 300 words).

Task 4: Critical thinking around global


Identify the industry sector that your scenario

is most closely identified to, for example travel

agent = tourism industry. Develop an informed

opinion about the impact of this industry sector’s operations in terms of one key global issue, e.g.

sustainability or culture (i.e. hastourism affected local indigenous cultures, if so how and why?). Present your

opinion, backing it up with evidence of your research (approximately 500 words).


Notes on formatting and structure

The written submission is to be formatted as a report, word-processed in 11 point font and 1 - 1.5 line spacing.

The word count does not include the executive summary, table of contents, appendices, introduction and

Your supervisor has requested that you design a new

information system about the different travel packages/

itineraries available. This info system should include identifying

key elements, like the accommodation, transport and meals

inclusions. Other additional travel options important to

potential travels should also be considered, for example group

size, personal budget requirements and traveller ratings. Use
