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.
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.
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.
The Group Report:
A discussion of what your group did on the project and how each of the group member personally contributed to the project. This should include a short narrative of the group’s process including how you felt the group worked and your contribution and a short narrative of the researched for information.
Make sure the name of your group and a listing of the members of your group are clearly identified on the first page of this document. Word limit: equivalent to 1000 words
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.
? Website should have minimum 11 pages.
? Each of those pages should use same or similar style, so that the pages look like they belong to the same website.
Validate your Webpage:

MARKING GUIDE (RUBRIC):
GENERAL NOTES FOR ASSIGNMENTS:
Assignments should usually incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion, and will be fully referenced including a reference list.
The work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We strongly recommend you to refer to the Academic Learning Skills materials available in the Moodle. For details please click the link http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/course/view.php?id=5 and download the file “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and demonstrate.
We recommend a minimum of FIVE references, unless instructed differently by your lecturer. Unless specifically instructed otherwise by your lecturer, any paper with less than FIVE references may be failed. Work 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 – as a general rule you may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
GENERAL NOTES FOR REFERENCING:
High quality work must be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We recommend you work with your Academic Learning Support (ALS) site (http://moodle.kent.edu.au/kentmoodle/course/view.php?id=5) available in Moodle to ensure that you reference correctly.
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the lecturer notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable of conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number/s if shown in the original. Before preparing your assignment or own contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video by clicking on the following link: Plagiarism: How to avoid it
PLAGIARISM: HOW TO AVOID IT
You can search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be overused – these should constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government departments, research institutes such as the NHMRC, or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and government departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use nonpeer reviewed websites: Why can't I just Google? (Thanks to La Trobe University for this video).
