It was mostly understandable. A little bit confusing in section C but mostly good.

Communication / Collaboration

Look at the Discussion pages of the wiki pages - is there effective communication?
Their discussion was fluent and was on topic. But, they were only talking about writing the report, not about whats in the report.
Do they need more?
They need to share more information about the report, and stay on topic when sharing.
Are they clear in their messages to each other?
They were clear enough to understand eachother.
Is there a sense of negotiation and collaboration?
Some of the questions weren't replied to. But we could tell they were thinking about their response when they were negotiating.
Does the work appear to be equally shared?
Many people posted questions, and different people were contributing in the discussion.
Does there appear to be any difficulties by one or more members of the team?
Some people were sarcastic and unhelpful during disscusions.
Presentation - Layout and Design

Look closely at the amount and relevance of graphics/images and media - Is there enough? Too much
Not enough pictures. Some of the pictures don't fit with what is talked about. You could use more pictures in section c and b.
What kinds of graphics/images and media have been used?
They used some clip art. An animated picture too.
Do the graphics/images and media used support the content of the project?
At the very top the two connecting the world online pictures are metaphoric. They add more understanding to the topic. The section d picture doesn't fit with the topic.
Do you have any recommendations to improve the layout and design of the project?
The layput is good. It's spaced wel and organized. You could use more information in section e.
