You should write up your World Museums Project in any word processing program, save your document

in a standard format (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt are all fine; avoid saving it as a .pdf or .pages document) and

upload into the assignment found on Blackboard in the World Museums Project area of the course menu.
