All students were encouraged to explore installing custom fonts, as well as work by South African font designers. No students used local fonts in response. All students' posters were in English, too. New slides should be developed that give students better encouragement on how they could earn extra credit for innovation by experimenting with custom fonts (especially local ones that may have a close resonance with their focus), plus incorporating other (South African national) languages.

One suggestion to reduce the files;
1. Make the poster and its rationale one document (and provide more guidance on the rationale's basic structure for ensuring students stick to one page). This will make it much easier for the assessors (and file viewers) to appreciate what each student was aimed to do. Also, linking these is also better for online shares.

Interesting that 'AI Can Recognize Your Face Even If You’re Pixelated' http://bit.ly/2cFeDpr. Researchers must consider the implications of this when sharing pixelated images of research participants. Even if they are small and heavily pixelated images, there is a risk that they could be reverse engineered by AI software (albeit it in the very distant future!) +Marion Walton +Anja Venter
