Reflection on Semester 1 implementation

In semester one, the project was implemented within the Design 1 Subject. For the students' final assignment, they were required to upload 8 roughs to Moodle for lecturer/peer feedback. This was communicated verbally in class and via posts on Moodle. The rationale for this was explained to students : that often in design, you will be required to send clients/teams roughs online for feedback, and that final files are always submitted electronically to printers/clients. Only one student uploaded roughs, out of 20. Most students showed roughs in class, and did not seem to want to upload to Moodle. Anecdotally, many saw it as extra work - to scan and upload images from their journals. From this, I decided firstly that producing roughs should be an assessable part of criteria in order to encourage students to do so, and that integrating Moodle into the subject from day one might help to familiarise students with the system and establish it as a primary platform for teaching and learning. I attempted to implement these changes into the next iteration of the project.
