The students’ presentation of their projects at the Amphitheatre in Dublin Virtually Live was a real success. A good crowd (including a liberal scattering of pirates) came along and guest judges Elfay Pinkdot and Sitearm Madonna were in attendance.

Following the presentations students responded to questions from the judges and Locks Aichi and this was followed by a general discussion with member of the audience.

The event was a tremendous success from every point of view and particular credit is due to the participants for the significant efforts put into the event. Well done to you all and congratulations!

Class 9: Wrapping up

December 7, 2012


We have almost reached the conclusion of the module. Next week sees the presentation of students’ projects so Locks and Tae met with each group of students individually. We discussed the dynamics of the group, the tools used to facilitate cooperation and planning and the intended approach to the presentation.

Feedback on each student’s blog was also given.

The rest of the class was given over to project work and final planning for the presentation.


  • Complete the group project for presentation.
  • Check that all required blog entries have been posted.
