Regarding the study of the suggested course material you are advised to initially split the work between you and then present it and discuss it with the rest of the people either in group or between groups. By the end of the 8th week you, as a group, will have to present your Business plan to all members of the course in form of a short video. The requirement is that you as a group have to present one business plan, but within your group, you may choose to work with multiple members' ideas.

One of the most important aspects of following such a course is communication between students and tutors and between students themselves, either in the context of the group or between groups. In the context of the Concurrent Design (CCD) sessions that you will be following, during weeks 3 to 6 a number of teleconference meetings will be organised for every one of you to participate, in order to interactively discuss your progress towards the aims and objectives of the course. In addition, you will have organise the communication between you in your own pace by using e-mails, Google Docs or any other means you will decide yourselves.
