Hello GRUEN participants!

The plan is for groups to work on their presentations until the extended deadline on May 31.  Presentations could be slide shows (Google Slides, PPT, Genially, etc), or narrated videos.  If you can host your presentation on a free website, that'd be a great way to archive and share your work with others!  (WordPress, others).  For more info see the Presentation forum discussion instructions.

I have opened the assignment to start collecting the presentation files, but the deadline isn't until May 31.

Evaluation criteria will include:

  • Analysis of the problem
  • Generation of ideas / concepts
  • Development of the solution
  • Communication of ideas and solution
  • Collaboration and contribution from all team members

Do you have questions or concerns about the group presentation? I will host a web conference on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, May 23 (tomorrow) and 24.

We will look at the ongoing Design work, and the progress on the Presentations.

The web conferences will be in the afternoon / evening: 4pm in Spain, 7pm in Pakistan, 7:30pm in India, 7:45pm in Nepal, and 10pm in Hong Kong / Singapore.   All GRUEN participants are welcome to attend these optional conferences!

The link to the web conference is: https://gruen.adobeconnect.com/main/

Students can login using their phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop PCs or Macs.

Mobile users can download the free Connect app from Adobe, and PC/Mac users can download the app or just load the link in their browsers.  Better to use the app, so you can use a microphone!  Just go in as a Guest, and type the name you want me to call you.

I recommend headphones / ear buds if you want to hear clearly, and to avoid any echos if you want to use voice.  The room is always open, and I highly recommend that you try loading the software and entering the room at least 30 minutes before the conference, to make sure you can troubleshoot any problems.  Once in the room, there's a pull-down menu under Meetings, select Audio Setup Wizard to test that your speakers and microphone work ok.   I like to have a backup device ready, for example you can have a laptop as your main device, and a smartphone loaded with the Connect app (and the link to the conference already loaded and tested) as your backup.
