4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The main problem we had to face during this project was of “time”, which is a major issue. All the students have been busy with their academic schedule. But managed to balance their academics as well their online project also, very well by working late and utilizing their free classes to work on this project. The Willingness to work on such a great platform also motivated the students. We also had to face the technical challenges posed by web design. While uploading the content on the website, we faced the problem of word limit of data. Our content was exceeding the limit that is of 800 KB. So, we had to reduce the content part by reducing the number of topics. Also, the website proved to be recalcitrant and uncooperative at times, but with a little tinkering and a little assistance from the Help menu, everything worked! In spite of problems encountered, all the students managed to complete this project in the best way possible.
