Your team's target document is a collaboratively written recommendation report which comments upon the potential for either the construction and maintenance of a Web site (feasibility study) or revisions to an already existing page (usability study). This document should effectively mediate between the client's needs and the course's goals for this project. Your team's work should reflect consideration of both the client's desires and resources and the class's criteria for the research and production of a professional recommendation report.
Your completed 1st Draft of the Recommendation Report is due Sunday, December 1st at 9pm. Students will read over the reports in preparation for in-class peer review on Monday, December 2. The final draft of your recommendation report is due by 6pm on Friday, December 6.
