If you intend to do one of the small group project options, you should have identified the people in your group (no more than three) as well as your plan for the project. The project option descriptions are available on ELMS under the project course menu. To get ahead of the game, we encourage you to bring in examples of inspirational materials, research or resources you intend to use in the development of your project.
