Assignment 2 Groups


Project assignment...

Based on your preferences (and GPA), the following projects have been assigned; Team 6 => 17, Team 13 => 14, Team 1 => 10, Team 4 => 13, Team 14 => 18, Team 8 => 11, Team 11 => 12, Team 3 => 4, Team 10 => 3, Team 12 => 1, Team 9 => 7. Teams 2, 5 and 7 have not been assigned a project because either they did not enter enough alternatives or did not enter any project number at all. You will have to fill your choices in the spreadsheet from the remaining projects. Those who did not fill the spreadsheet at all should also do that ASAP. Teams of 2 are not acceptable; you must get more partners. Incase you want to discuss the projects details, Thursday is my day off. I am available starting Sun 11AM.

Project milestone 2 feedback

Feedback and marks have been posted in course material section. If it says no feedback to mark, this means I did not receive a submission from you (or via your TA). If it is says invalid submission, it means i cannot open 1 or more of the zip files you submitted. For your next and last milestone, try to get as many of the features implemented as possible. Paper prototypes are not acceptable.


Previous exams posted in materials section. In the exam, you are allowed to bring 1 aid sheet double sided hand written A4 (standard paper) size.

You should start coding the implementation. It is still a prototype you are going to deliver -- that is: not all features working but you should have few of the interaction techniques or interface elements already built by the end of this milestone. Drop by my office to discuss details if you are unclear about what to do. I will be emailing you feedback about first delivery by tomorrow night.
