2. Classroom activities
Each class session was a combination of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice.
This gave students an opportunity to hear the theory, see it in action, and practice it
themselves. As part of the demonstration, I invited an Internet startup, Linkify, to be
our in-class guinea pig. We practiced all of the methods being taught on Linkify – often
identifying usability issues that the Linkify team would use to change their design.
The students could see the value of the methods in action.
