Can you identify any areas which need clarification?
  • I am not sure what the numbers mean before the text…
  • Under the section title, Current News, there are words in italicized that do not make sense
  • Does the picture for Education fit the text? I suggest using a picture of students in a classroom that have laptops
  • Check your quotation uses in all sections along with other grammar like commas

  • Links are very helpful and help give readers a stronger background.
  • They should add a few more pictures or graphics.

The content is mostly clear on the subjects, but they might want to clarify some of the vocabulary for readers that don’t work with the computer as much.

Communication / Collaboration

Look at the Discussion pages of the wiki pages - is there effective communication?
Yes there was effective communication. There were many communications posted with numerous replies to each one.
Do they need more?
No, there were 150 messages- they are communicating a lot.
Are they clear in their messages to each other?
About a hanful of the messages were not clear. But most of them I could comprehend.
Is there a sense of negotiation and collaboration?
I saw a lot of messages saying what they should change and what they should add.
Does the work appear to be equally shared?
When requests for help or jobs that needed to be completed were made, other team members responded and helped.
Does there appear to be any difficulties by one or more members of the team?
Yes, there were a few difficulties of people not knowing what to do. But they eventually worked out the difficulties.
Presentation - Layout and Design

Look closely at the amount and relevance of graphics/images and media - Is there enough? Too much
Not very many images although they fit the criteria well.
What kinds of graphics/images and media have been used?
The students used links and images.
Do the graphics/images and media used support the content of the project?
It was a little strange that different text format was used but only certain items stood out. Graphics and media could be more specific but they work with the text.
Do you have any recommendations to improve the layout and design of the project?
A very large amount of text that could definitely been smaller if more hyperlinks were used or bullets.
These students could have inserted more pictures and edited the text so it was easier to understand, overall it’s very good.
