My project was to make arrangements for my manager to attend a conference in London. I chose this topic to improve my organisation & numeracy skills.
The software I used was Microsoft Word because the layout and formatting are more beneficial than other programs.
The software features I used are pie charts, tables, bold, underline, image uploads and hyperlinks.
I learnt how to format pie charts and my knowledge with Microsoft Word is quite above an average level.
I got my information from http://coach.nationalexpress.com/ & www.accorhotels.com. These two sites were very easy to use & straight forward to input details to generate a result. I found the information I wanted by the website step by step options e.g. Find the journey- choose- add extras- ticket delivery- your details- payment- conformation. Information was easy to find on the internet as researching this without being able to access websites would have been more time consuming.
I found diigo (on-line book marking tool) very easy to use as well as using annotation & highlighting tools which first was hard but I have gradually got better at it, I can now access these websites without doing another search.
I believe I could have explained the project a little better & presented it in more detail. I think I could have improved the hotel information & the taxi estimate fare with more details.
Before starting the project I planned the content and this helped me to organise the information into a report of my findings.
I completed a few drafts of the project before it was accepted as my final copy, I had to make changes to the;
- Correct wording
- Removed capital letters where they were not needed
- Re-sized images and pie chart/tables
Making these changes helped improve the overall look of the document.
From this project if I had more time and skills (reasoning I attend once every two weeks), I would improve the layout, I do think that a few bits could be changed (information layout) to make the overall project look better.
Once I completed the project I had to complete one more task which was to sort & filter 2849 locations to find E16. I demonstrated how to use the sort and filter tool, I learned how to by selecting the top rows, clicking on the sort and filter option and clicked on filter. A little square will come up on each cell in the top row which helped me sort and filter the location down to find E16.
