4. Problems We Had To Overcome

The main obstacle for both teachers and students is TIME. Teachers need time to arrange for the entire project and time to instruct and teach students how to use soft wares for completing the roject. Students need time to learn and be familiar with new soft wares, to discuss the project, to interview, to write manuscripts, to edit the web pages. In order to squeeze as much time as possible between all the scheduled events, exams and activities during the semester, we spend lunch break together, sometimes even after school hours, or carry on the discussion via email or msn while at home. Aside from the school days, we also have to work during weekends and even winter vacation. The inexperienced students acquired and improved a lot throughout the process. How to delegate work and teamwork are the key to the completion of the project.
