Assignment details and instructions
Important: This is a group assignment, hence all the group members are expected to contribute to the meetings and the video report (i.e. every member of the group is required to present a part of the video). While the norm is that all group members will receive the same mark, marks may be adjusted if it is noted that a group member has contributed at a standard that is higher or lower than the rest of their group members. The decision will be made based on the content of the minutes.
Important (2): as indicated in the rubric, part of your mark will depend on the originality of the video and your presentation skills. TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT: It is not forbidden to records parts of video as individual and merge it together as a group work, but this is not going to contribute to your mark for the group presentation skills.

OTHER TIPS and helpful videos on how to make a video report will be provided on Canvas.
Only one person from the group is permitted to upload the assignment. The group must decide who will take on this responsibility.
In the Assignment thread on Canvas this is your Assignment 2 and you will find instructions for submission. The assignment will not be marked if the group’s representative has not uploaded it on Canvas.
If you wish to apply for an extension of time you must apply in writing to the Course Coordinator before the stated submission date. Extensions to submission deadlines beyond 7 days are allowed only as a result of a successful application for Special Consideration. Unless an extension has been granted, penalties to the assessment will be applied.
All assignments will be marked as if submitted on time, then the mark awarded will be reduced by 10% for each day (or part of a day) it is late. For example, if an assignment is worth 30 marks and is submitted one day late, the penalty is 10% of 30 marks, which is 3 marks.
Assignments overdue by 7 days or more will not be marked and will be awarded a mark of zero.
Assignments that exceed the time limit by more than 10% will attract a marking penalty that is 5% of the total available marks. As the time limit is 12 minutes, you can only exceed 1 minute. If the minutes in excess are more than 1 minute, you will incur a penalty of 5% of the total mark.
