The course includes individual as well as group assessments. Students will work in groups to design, produce and present an immersive experience applied to a real-world problem space. Groups will need to capture their design artefacts and development contributions and report them on a regular basis, and at the end of their projects will provide a final report and presentation. Students will be required to prepare an individual portfolio submission detailing their involvement in the project.
