Abstract: The design of interfaces has an extensive focus, which goes beyond the screen design. The objective of this study, developed in learning settings at the University of Évora, Course of Interface Design, first curricular semester of 22/23, was to explore two perspectives of Interface Design. The project focused on mapping six sites related to Nature Spots beyond the horizon established from the classroom. The project included a physical non-digital interface (PhiNDI) and a digital interface component. The study follows a descriptive case methodology. The results allowed the students to develop tangible Design solutions and competencies at the level of the development of affordances. The limitations of the project are related to the development of low and high-fidelity prototypes.
Keywords: Learning Settings, Interface Design, Hyper Objects, Visual Maps
