Dear class,

We will resume our lectures at 28 April.

I have uploaded the lecture note on the course website:

I have also uploaded the video of the lecture on Blackboard.

You can watch the video before the lecture. The schedule lecture time tomorrow will be Q&A time via Zoom.

I have added the link of SWEN304 Zoom on the leftbar of course website, for your convenience.

As we said before we have revised the assessment scheme to reduce workload. The revised scheme can be found at


The course outline will be updated accordingly once it is open for editing.

Dear class,

Hope you are all well.

As we mentioned in the engagement day, we will reduce workload of the course and will change the course assessment scheme. The revised assessment scheme include the following:

Assessment Item      Due Date or Test Date      CLO(s)      Percentage
Assignment 1              Week 5                              CLO: 1      10%
Assignment 2              Week 9                              CLO: 5      20%
Assignment 3              Week 11                              CLO: 4      20%
Project 1                    Week 7                              CLO: 2      30%
Final Test (2 hours)        Week 12                        CLO: 1,2,3,4,5,6  20%

The revised scheme has been submitted to VUWSA for approval and is subject to be changed.

Best regards,
