For the final project, the class will create a project site on the OpenLab to which everyone will contribute. Each team will have its own page on the OpenLab project site. Each team is responsible for the design of your project and for any sub-topics included. Within the team, students will assume responsibility for a sub-topic as well as various roles including graphics & visualization editor, writer/editor, References manager etc.
