* Practical project, to be tackled by a selected group of students (distributed software project: preparation/analysis, design, implementation, and presentation)
* Theoretical analysis of tasks and related literature studies
* Contribution during but also outside the course units (e.g., studying lecture, online, and written materials, taking part in self assessment tasks, etc)
* Working on the provided materials and presenting the results, ideas and concepts

All submissions must be handed in due time via Moodle/GitLab or the respective relevant platform.
