Spring 2009

Final Project


In this class, we have updated ourselves of using the latest version of
Office
application software. We
have also explored the basics of programming within the Alice environment. To wrap up this class, you
are asked to create a PowerPoint file to present the things that you enjoyed most through this class.


First, you need to choose

one topic that you value the most from the following major
area
s

that we
covered from this class
:

-

Database development with Access

-

Data manipulation and processing with Excel

-

Experience with the MyITLab environment

-

Programming with Alice

-

Word processing
using Word


Next, narrow down your topic to one aspect of the broader area that you just identified to a scenario
-
based application. For instance, you may want to share your experience with your fellow students (in
the future class) the ways to get most fr
om the MyITLab exercises or the problems you may encounter.
You may also walk them through the major steps in developing an Access project or
creating an
animation using Alice.


Then you can start planning your presentation by determining 6 to 8 PowerPoin
t slides that can help
make your ideas across. This will include

-

A cover page with a title, subtitle if appropriate, and your name

-

A slide to describe the topic that you’ve chosen and why you want to focus on it

-

A slide pointing out the specific aspect/sce
nario that you want to focus on

-

A few slides that detail the steps involved in your scenario/project

-

One slide that conclude your presentation, with possible suggestions/useful links


Proper usage of the following features

that you learned from the PowerPo
int chapters will be expected
when I grade this project:

-

Applying a template that fits the topic to be presented, as well as color and font schemes

-

The usage of bullet (and sub
-
bullet) items that are informative and concise

-

Usage of slides that contain
text
-

or image
-
only, or contain both text and image, to better
convey the information to the audience

o

Include screenshots generated using other Office applications (such as forms/reports in
Access or tables/charts in

Excel) or Alice. You may use
Alt
-
PrintS
creen

to copy the
image of the application of interest into the Windows clipboard and then paste it to a
PPT slide or to an image processing tool (such as Paint) for further editing.


o

You may also use
clip arts from various resources

when presenting genera
l ideas to
which no specific screenshots are applicable
.

-

Use other features such as WordArt, custom shapes, animation, and multimedia when
appropriate. Don’t try to use these features just for the sake of showing off. Use them only
when they can enhance yo
ur points.

-

Add headers/footers with your name, date, and page numbers, as well as notes
,

as appropriate.


Submit your final project by
7:00 p.m.

Thursday
, May 7. Upload the PowerPoint file to our ftp site,
under the
Final

Project

folder.
