AoN Project

The topic of my AoN project was comparing camera and lens prices. I created this to show my audience a range of cameras and configurations for any price range and level of experience.

I used a number of different software packages for this project, I used Google Chrome for researching online, I searched for camera and lens prices and what cameras were best for beginners to professionals. I used Microsoft Excel to create my table, work out combination prices, work out the average price and to create charts and graphs. I then used Powerpoint to present my findings.

I searched sites like Curry’s and PC World for prices as they give a good representation of the actual cost of the cameras, not like some smaller store sites which add on to the price. I know that these sites are reliable as they are big high street stores that have good reviews. I found the information on the sites by filtering by brand and price high-low in the sites search engine.

I used charts and graphs as the give a good visual representation of the number data which is sometimes easier to read than a long winded table of numbers.

I think the project went well and targets my audience well.  I didn’t have any drawbacks with the software I used because I know it quite well, although I did not know how to create absolute cell references to begin with, but later used this method which allowed me to copy formulas quickly and more efficiently. Diigo helped a lot with bookmarking my pages which I could back to easily and draw information from.

I made a few changes from my first draft as the table was quite hard to read with all the information, so I split it into different brands and the lens options within the brand, also I separated the averages into 3 smaller tables so they were easier to see and read.

Instead of using pre-made graphs and charts from websites I created my own from my data to be sure I didn’t infringe on anyone’s copyrights.

I backed my project up online using the Swansea Itec Moodle and i also backed my project up on a memory stick and in my user area. It is important to back your work up to protect yourself from theft of data and of your removable memory device, a system problem that may delete your work and to protect yourself from anyone who may intentionally set out to tamper or destroy your work.

I think I could improve the project by making the Powerpoint presentation look nicer with a colour scheme or page formatting and for it to have more content.
