Information to help with Assignment 2

  • The website/system you select to evaluate needs to have sufficient depth to it to make the assignment meaningful. You must check with me first if you are using a site not list on the assignment sheet.
  • References: Use the library database and make sure that when you do a general search tick the box 'peer reviewed', that will cut out a lot of the rubbish.  
  • 5000 words is the minimum but you won't have any trouble reaching that, remember if you will write around 400 - 450 words per page so this is likely to be around 12 pages.
  • Remember use the marking guide as an indicator for how marks are allocated and how the paper should be structured.

  • Presentations should be 10-15 minutes long, your group will be stopped after 15 minutes. There will be 5 minutes provided for discussion and questions.
  • Please provide Julie or Jake with a copy of your presentation before the start of the class week 12.
  • Remember that the presentation takes the form of a report to the board. You are to imagine you are presenting to the board and providing the board for reasons why the changes you are recommending should be made to their website. The rest of the class will act as the board and will be asked to respond to your request for changes recommended.
