Website Design and Development Assignment 
For this assignment, you will work with a team to develop a website. Your team will need to conduct some research to find the information for the topic. The goal is to present the information (website) in such a way that customers can use your website effectively. In addition, you will submit a brief individual report about this assignment. 
Teams: 
You will be expected to choose your own teams for this project. Teams may consist of three or four students. Your team needs to choose a team name and contact person. Students who are not in a group must contact the lecturer. 
The Website: 
Good web design suggests that dividing material into bite-sized pieces relating to a portion of the overall topic. 
Good practice of web design is expected – e.g. appropriate navigation, a good writing style for the web, well-thought out design to make material easily read on screen, and appropriate fonts and colors. The home page should be index.html. 
One of the pages (references.html) should contain accurate and detailed information about the sources of information (contents and images) used in the web pages. It is expected that the references be accurate and complete and follow an appropriate format. 
Your website project must follow the hierarchical structure and file naming conventions given below. Your marks will be deducted if you don’t follow this structure in your project. 
The Group Report: 
Write a three page paper describing the process of creating your website, working with your client and learning the technical skills necessary to do so. Discuss the things that went well on the site, the things that you found difficult, things you would change if you could do it again and what your group did on the project and how each of the group member personally contributed to the project. 
Remember, unlike some of the other papers we have done in class, this is an actual essay, not a rough designs or notes. Pay attention to grammar and spelling.

Plagiarism and Collusion of Material: 
One of the most common reasons for programming plagiarism is leaving work until the last minute. Avoid this by making sure that you know what you have to do (not necessarily how to do it) as soon as an assessment is set. Then decide what you will need to do in order to complete the assignment. Since the web pages are submitted as a group, ensure that all members of your group follow strict guidelines to avoid plagiarism.

GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSESSMENT TASKS 
Content for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion. 
Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high quality work presented by a student must be fully referenced within-text citations and a Reference List at the end. Kent strongly recommends you refer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available on the Kent Learning Management System (Moodle). For details please click the link http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/mod/folder/view.php?id=3606 and download the file titled “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. This Moodle Site is the location for Workbooks and information that are presented to Kent Students in the ALS Workshops conducted at the beginning of each Trimester. 
Kent recommends a minimum of FIVE (5) references in work being presented for assessment. Unless otherwise specifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specific Assessment Task, any paper with less than five (5) references may be deemed not meeting a satisfactory standard and possibly be failed. 
Content in Assessment tasks that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “Harvard Referencing Workbook” will be penalised. 
Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count if this is specifically stated for the Assessment Task in the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discretionary variance to the word count in that it is generally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
