Nicely designed and executed. Loved it.

The topic and the presentation is very good.

One star less because of questions/answers which are not part of the lecture.

One star less because of the rating for the assignment does not fully match (i.e. estimation: compare to the WBS and Gantt Chart but both will not be available / not be uploaded)

The proposed template has different fields from the rubric, so basically it's not a template.

Don't follow it if you want to pass the assignment because if don't, there will not be anyone to correct your assignment again.
