This assignment is to be completed in small groups and submitted through Blackboard as per the instructions. Use the “Groups” function on Blackboard to join a group.

Your task is to create a Shopify website for a fictitious business of your choice using the sign-up link provided in class as it gives you access to a free store for the semester. Your website must adhere to the following:

  • Password protect your store using “humber” as a password
  • Configure the “Minimal” free theme
  • Include a note on the homepage clearly describing that this is a class project
  • Include 10-15 products
  • Include 5 collections
  • Including a “Coming Soon” collection that is featured on the homepage
  • Include 2 short blog posts, well optimized for search engines

Deliverables

  1. Your Shopify website URL in the “Submission” text field
  2. Screencaps of your dashboard (details below). Make sure you use PPT, then save as PDF before you submit on BB

Since I do not have access to your dashboard, I will need to see screen captures of some of your dashboard items (listed below). Create a PPT file with a title slide that includes your full name, student number, include the following screencaps, then save it as PDF before you upload it on BB. Make sure ALL screencaps are high quality images that can be viewed so I can see the details from your Dashboard:
