Students will work in teams on the development of an application/exhibition for a client. Using project planning/management skills along with other development procedures, students must then deliver a functional system, along with all requisite documentation, which integrates multimedia, programming, business and technical knowledge in the development process. Requirements are fulfilled by the team producing an identified set of deliverables, usually a progress report, full system documentation, and functional project. The team must ensure that each deliverable is completed on schedule, with each member of the team demonstrating a significant contribution to the overall effort.


At the completion of this unit students will have a theoretical and conceptual understanding of the roles and responsibilities of clients and developers in a software development project and the methodologies, tools and techniques required for delivering a functional system. At the completion of this unit students will have developed attitudes that enable them to approach the development process ethically and professionally. At the completion of this unit students will have the skills to develop a significant multimedia/computing application, primarily testing, evaluation, finalisation, documentation, and delivery; apply project management techniques to a software development project; integrate multimedia, programming, business and technical skills in the testing and evaluation of a system prototype; develop effective user and system documentation and evaluate personal performance and performance of a development team. At the completion of this unit students will have further developed the teamwork skills needed to communicate effectively with clients and members of the development team and work effectively in a team.
