As students develop mobile video games in large teams, graduate level students will concurrently be spearheading project management and communication efforts, often with a co-leader. These tasks will be accompanied by specialized training. As active parts of their team, participants will be writing documentation to a variety of audiences for a myriad of technical, business, and design needs. Together, students in their teams will write workflow documents, specifications, planning, marketing, video scripting, and project management pieces that have the specific task of always moving the team's work forward. The communication tasks are not extras; rather, they are integral to the game dev process. Iterations and deep revising will be part of this process, with inputs from both the CS instructor and the communication instructor. As well, students will hone their skills for team stand-up presentations.
