Get in touch with your teammates, and designate one person to go to Design Ideas page and find your team's design idea

In another browser tab, go to the "Design Ideas" page for our class

  • In the left-most tool bar, you will see a "flow-chart looking" icon for "children" - click it, then choose "Design Template" from the menu of items
  • this should auto-populate some headers for your design.

Now, save your page with some name that captures your idea, and start trying to fill in the top two or three sub-sections, leading up to class.  See if you can come up with at least some short scenarios.  Be prepared to discuss in class.
