Today I asked people the question, “What is your group’s plan since the presentation is in a few days?” Justin said that our plan is to work hard and push through so we can get a good grade. Jennifer said they need to work hard to get done before the due date. It looks like everyone is going to work hard so that we have a very good website that will get lots of attention to help people understand the Affordable Care Act.
When asked if all of the information we are gathering for the website will be beneficial to the uninformed public students answered with a strong yes.
Ray from the presentation group said, “Yes because people who don’t know much about ACA, then when they look at the website they’ll be informed.”
Anonymous from the web design group said, “Yes, because we have given accurate and quality information.
We agree with the above statements.
As the project progresses we are asking each group whether or not they think the project is easier or harder than they expected. Most groups responded that the project was fairly easy but was just time consuming. Video Production says, “The project is easy, but sometimes we have to take a step back and look at what we are doing and if we are doing it correctly.” The Art Group says that the project is easy now but in time may become more stressful because people will be asking them for more artwork for the website and since only one person has the ability to create the artwork, it will be very stressful towards the end of the project.
Web Design has not found any information because they depend on other groups for their information to put on the website, they say that people aren't taking the project seriously and are not coming through with actual ideas for the logo for the website. Presentation feels the project is kind of hard because they need to figure out whom to invite to the presentation of the website. Video Production says “it’s not terrible” because all the information they need comes from the work groups and all they have to do is figure out how to present it visually.
There is some controversy between the groups because some say that other groups are not putting in enough effort for them to complete their side of the project but others disagree, saying that groups are participating and are completing everything they need to do.
