WP-I Team Project
Follow the information and guidelines in this section to conduct
your team project. You'll find information on teams, projects,
milestons, evaluations, reports, and presentaitons.
Import Note: Any HTML forms you put
up on your web project must carray a large warning at the top
``Student Project Page, Not for Real Use" so people on the Web do not
get confused and try to fill out your form. This is even more important
when a form collects credit card or other personal information.
As the class proceeds, a page will be set up by the TA for
Teams, members, and their project pages.
The milestone information is extremely critical for team and project operation.
So the whole team should have access to it and modifications or rethinking
on it is allowed.
So teams please keep your milestone documents online. The projects page
on the team leader web site would be a good place to keep it for the team.
When a milestone is due, send
- Electronic copy to Lab TA (PDF, HTML, or text) but cannot be URL.
The Lab TA will review and keep a copy of your Milestone for future reference.
- The URL of your milestone by email to Lab TA + instructor.
In drafting your website, please make sure you test it on
the Web server cgi.cs.kent.edu. For example put index.html
in your public_html and access it with the URL
Each team has a pre-assigned Web site location on cgi.cs.kent.edu
and all team members can upload and download files to the site
