Group Assignment

Due: October 23, 2002

Complete the following activities:

Create a design document for your group's site, using the guidelines provided in the Webmonkey IA tutorial.

You should create the document in a word processor, and submit it via the dropbox in our Blackboard account. Page mock-ups can be included as part of the document (screen shots and diagrams), or you can provide an URL to a web-based mock-up as part of the design document.

Only one document should be submitted per group.

This assignment should be uploaded to Blackboard no later than the beginning of class on Wednesday, October 23. A printed copy of the document should be brought to class on that day.
