About the course

Throughout the course, you use analogue and digital level prototypes to perform tests with the purpose to gather data to help achieve the experience goals of a designed level. Using the data, you develop proposed changes to the level's design, with the aim to reach measurable design and experience goals. The course ends with a presentation where you describe your tests and discuss the data and the final result.
