You are encouraged to discuss among yourselves the principles and problems. It
should not stop you from teaching and learning concepts. However, to allow group
work, the project scope will have to increase considerably. This is resulting in
more software requirements, which Azure labs are currently not able to support.
Even with personal machines, it can cause equity issues. This is problematic for
many students. These problems are not solvable by simple video calling etc.
Individual project is meant to save students from multiple potential problems (that
will hardly add anything to learning). Please be aware that these problems do not
generalise to other units. Again, students are highly encouraged to discuss among
themselves the project related problems online. Individual project does not stop
you from learning from others. However, just as in group projects, please do not
share the exact solutions.
Just as a remark, the project is scoped considering individual effort. Allowing
groups of two can only be done by making the scope twice as large of what you
currently have for the project (basically twice the workload). It will still make
40% of your final grade. If the person who posted this message is interested in
that, he/she can contact me directly via email. I can give you the extra work that
will allow you to include one project partner. However, it will be your
responsibility to arrange the additional software and handle its related issues.
For others, the project remains the same.
