After discussing your team’s possible topics (at least 3) and proposed deliverable (e.g., website, help system, app, white paper, book, etc.), collaboratively write a memo in your Google Drive shared folder. It should follow this format and be at least 250 words:
TO: Prof. Ellis FROM: Write all team member's full names here DATE: SUBJECT: Final Team Project Planning Memo Write a sentence introducing the purpose of this memo. Write a discussion of three topics you discussed for the content of your proposed deliverable. Indicate which of the three your team selected. Write a brief discussion about the proposed deliverable and which type your team selected.
Then, each team member should copy-and-paste the memo into a comment made to this post (so each team member has recorded credit for contributing to the homework assignment).
For folks who were absent, we will find team placements for you next week. To make up this missed assignment, you can take advantage of one of the extra credit opportunities.
And for easier access, the overall project is detailed on the syllabus and below. We will break this down into parts and work on it during future classes, though some time outside of class will be necessary to complete the project.
Final Team Project, 30% The final team project gives students an opportunity to apply what they have learned about IA by writing and publishing a 2,500-word report online that proposes a complex website or document and includes explanations/reflections about why and what purpose each component of their report serves in terms of IA. The report will be written and published using Google Docs. The report requires at least 10 quoted and cited library-based sources (class readings that were drawn from the library are acceptable to use). Additional sources from external sources are permitted, but these sources need to be contextualized more rigorously than library vetted sources. On the last day of class, each team will email a link to their project to Prof. Ellis and give a short 5-10 minute presentation in class anchored by a slidedeck that provides an overview of their report.
