Total Marks: 100 marks Weight: 70% of final grade
Learning Outcome 2:
Analyze the application of mobile strategy applicable to a specific context.
Learning Outcome 3:
Analyze the future of mobile and wireless technology and its impact on different industries. The purpose of this project is to continue to explore a specific mobile and/or wireless technology within a particular context or industry. In this assessment, you will be proposing and researching the development and implementation of a mobile application or system. You are to focus on one industry or organization and investigate and research a novel solution that incorporates some of the technologies you have earlier discussed and researched.
Example projects could include:

? Detailed background and analysis of your specific company/industry (which could include a formal contextual inquiry or survey)
? Relevant literature review on current research framing your specific design in relation to the mobile technology you have chosen.
? Technical discussion related to the application and implementation of the technology as a solution to a problem
? Researched design and critical evaluation of your solution (based on how well your solution addresses the needs of your users)
? Future research direction and recommendations for future development for the solution you have proposed.
You will also be required to present your main findings in the form of a 15-20 minute presentation. This will include a question and answer session. All students are expected to participate in this session by giving feedback and asking questions of your peers about their presentation.
