9IPT: Collecting Software

posted Mar 5, 2012, 5:41 PM by Eddie Woo
After a brief break looking at chairs, we move on from our focus on hardware to look at the software side of collecting. In a new classwork post, answer the following questions:
  1. Define the term "device driver".
  2. Outline why device drivers are necessary.
  3. Define the following terms: (i) data integrity, (ii) data validation and (iii) data verification.
  4. Outline the key design factors that influence the efficiency and accuracy of user interfaces that are responsible for data entry.
  5. Identify and experiment with the software on your laptops that are aimed primarily at the collecting process. Propose ways in which these pieces of software can be incorporated into your solo project.
