M253 - Milestone 2

Having had a few minutes to look at the requirements for Milestone 2 for this course I have come to the conclusion that it focuses a great deal more on team-work than Milestone 1 did.

That might seem like an unusual statement for a course designed to assess how people work in teams, but the Milestone 1 requirements meant that a lot of people could 'hide' if they wanted to - in Milestone 2 people are required to participate in a more defined manner.

It also seems like a fairly intense workload as there is a lot of work to do during the lifetime of the course. This is unusual as it flies in the face of the Open University mantra regarding flexibility - meaning that should any member of the team be unable to participate fully the consequences to the others could be quite significant.

It will be interesting to see how this one pans out - it is going to take a lot of discipline....
