INST 6820 Design Contest

As part of David Wiley's Instructional Design Studio class three groups were assigned to create some sort of instructional material using the following rigid criteria:

1. It has to teach something.
2. It has to be 'cool'
3. It has to show what is possible using legally reusable resources.

Tomorrow, in Rm 282 from 10:45-11:45, each group will present their project. Afterwards, you (yes, you!) get to vote and determine the best project. The winners will each receive an iPod shuffle! So come tomorrow and help decide the winner!
