Alta looks after section 1 and she said you must follow the guidelines in your tut letters for section 1
For Section 2 (Web Design):
The five sections (i.e sections 1, 2, 3, 4, plus assignment 3), in the online (or CD) tutorial letter for assignments 2 and 3 have exam guidelines as the first paragraph.
For the Web design exercises you should know what makes a Web page good or bad and what criteria can you use to measure the usability of a Web page - i.e. make use of the factors: Usability, Navigation, Graphic Design, Content, Compatibility, Load Time, and Functionality.
NB: There is a pre-prepared question in section 2 which will count 30% in the exam:
For each of the seven criteria (Usability, Navigation, Graphic Design, Content, Compatibility, Load Time, and Functionality), write a short paragraph describing how you used (or can use) each of these criteria to improve and test your own web site. For example: Under compatibility you can discuss how you tested your Web site in both Firefox and Internet Explorer or perhaps also Opera, and also tested it under Windows Vista or and Windows XP or perhaps Linux that you used helped you to achieve the specific factor.
NB: You must know what is meant by each of the seven criteria
Here are a few other general comments:
(a) All students will have exam admission regardless of your mark for assignments 1, or 2 - i.e. your mark for the course will depend on just two components: (1) Your web project (assignment 3) and (2) Your written exam. The web project counts 30% and the written exam 70% of your final mark.
(b) One way we can access your web project (assignment 3) is through assignment 2 (your assignment2 page) - make sure that you have a URL to your Web project on this page by 31 October at the latest; else we will not know where to find your Web site. Include your e-mail address on your assignment2.htm page. In addition send an e-mail to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com where you confirm the URL of your final Web project.
(c) When you write your exams you do not need a student card - these are (normally) only sent out to degree students - but you do need to know what your student number is. All you need to bring with you in the exam is your exam admission letter (or a letter confirming your registration), and your ID book.
Ah this is awesome, thank you so much Toby. Cant wait for the exam, it sounds pretty do-able. Obviously gotta touch up a bit especially on the compatibility part but we will see. Wish everyone all the best! Cheers!
