Recruitment Drive - Final Feedback

Thursday, 31 December 2009 at 00:23
Mmmm, this appeared to be quite a tough gig for some of you. There are only a handful (possibly 4) distinctions offered from 44 submissions. Oh dear! How did that happen? Well, let's have a look:

Criteria 1 - what you need to do here is look at a variety of games developers and explain how they work. How are they financed? How does one become a managing director? Who looks after the well being of a company? How is a company forged? Do you need good ideas, or money to succeed?

Can any of you, hand on heart, tell me that you ticked all of these boxes? Even though some people got distinctions, no one answered every question above. Most of you fail to answer a single question above and pretty much all of you completely forgot to even bother with this part of the assignment. How come?

Criteria 2 - It's great that everyone mentioned different jobs in the industry but who actually mentioned what these jobs do, and who does them? Also, how many of you compared the jobs and job roles across the indsutry (because each job and employer is different).

My main area of disappointment was despite standing in front of you for 2 hours a week for 12 weeks, some of you still managed to copy and paste big old sections from wikipedia, and others. If you are one of those people, you might want to rethink your options because this course may not be for you.

I want individuals like Bobby L (Distinction), Bobby W (Distinction), Cam (Distinction) and others who are prepared to go away, think about the question and deliver a sterling piece of work.

Some people tried really hard (and some a little too hard). Relax! You have 2 years to work, and work hard, but shirking out and copying from websites is a bit low.

Some people have yet to submit assignment 1.1! Gasp! Oh, and just one person failed to submit the work in the required format; so their work was marked last!
