Assignments

Assignment 5b. Next stage: SWOT analysis
Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats

Do a 1-page SWOT analysis of your site from a Visitor Experience point of view. Remember to get the "O" for opportunities section right. Opportunities are external, beneficial forces, not things you choose to do. Refer to Class 5.

Due: 6PM, Wednesday March 10. Upload in PDF format to Brightspace.

Name the file: YOURLASTNAME_DSGN4101_Assign5b.PDF

Late assignment penalties

For this assignment, late submissions will be penalized at 10% of the total mark (that is, if an assignment is graded out of 10, you will lose 1 point per day, starting on the due date.)

A 1-hour grace period after the assignment due time will be given to avoid any technical issues related to internet speed resulting in late assignment penalties.

The best approach, however, is to submit work early.
