Your Task

You will be working with your team on developing a WordPress.com website for your client, based on the four phases discussed in class (refer to the slides for details)

  1. Discovery
  2. Design
  3. Development & Testing
  4. Deployment & Training

Discovery Phase (5%)

  • Deliverable: Proposal
  • Refer to the slides for what to include in your proposal
  • Submission: Through BB (max 2 pages PDF)

Design Phase (5%)

  • Deliverable: Themes
  • Include 3-5 suggested free WordPress.com themes that are aligned with your client’s goals for the website, and explain how each theme meets the client’s requirements in terms of both style and functionality
  • Please copy and paste the full URL instead of inserting it as a hyperlink as BB Ultra doesn’t allow me to access hyperlinks through PDFs, so I will have to copy and paste the link in a browser
  • Submission: Through BB (max 2 pages PDF)

Development Phase (10%)

  • Deliverables: Final website & group reflection
  • Presentations will take place during class time
  • Group reflection PDF: this is your “project post-mortem” or “lessons learned”, one page listing what went right / what went wrong, include pictures of the process when possible (for example brainstorming meetings)
