4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Some of the technical obstacles that we had to overcome was the fact that the Internet on our school computers are very slow and often lose the connection to the Internet. It is very hard to deal with because we are repeatedly losing our work and have to redo it. We haven’t been able to overcome this issue, instead we just have to deal with it. Another issue we have is that on our school computers we’re not allowed onto certain cites, so we may not be able to find all of the proper information needed for this project.
