Abstract

This paper outlines the implementation, production and assessment of electronic posters in two undergraduate classes. In one case the material was prepared in PowerPoint, the other as a World Wide Web presentation using HTML. The advantages of each are described, together with the marking schemes and some comments about implementation. Students worked in small groups but were given individual marks. Overall, the use of electronic media was liked by the students and is seen as a useful way of combining a variety of skills with academic material.
