We will be doing lots and lots of little things and bigger things in class to get you thinking about your projects and about web design in general. These in class exercises and homework exercises are geared to build up to larger assignments.
Thus, your engagement with these are critical for future success. A portion of your grade will be based on your preparation for and participation in class and subsequent exercises.
There’s no reason to worry about this portion of your grade if you’re doing regular student things like preparing for class. However, if you are concerned about it, please talk to me.
