The course final project is designed for you to apply the software application skills you acquired during the term. For this project, you will use all four of the Microsoft Office applications to create a unified project on a single topic. The instructions below are not step-by-step instructions – as part of the previous assignments you’ve already learned how to carry out various functions in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. Instead, the information below details the requirements for the final project. If you need assistance with “how to do something in one of the Office applications” return to your SIMnet MS Office textbook. You can access this via the “Library” link in the top right-hand corner of SIMnet.
You must use the following software applications to create the final project:
• Microsoft Word 2019
• Microsoft Excel 2019
• Microsoft Access 2019
• Microsoft PowerPoint 2019
No other versions of Office may be used. If you’re missing any of the above applications, keep in mind that the computers in the Open Computer Lab (DTEC 462) have all these applications available for your use.
Your project topic is your intended major/career. You should begin developing your project after researching your intended major and career via the Careers in IT sections of the textbook and websites linked in Module 13. This is the focus of your final project. You will use ALL the Office applications to create content related to your chosen topic.
The minimum requirements for each of the four applications are detailed in the checklists below.
o applying additional skills covered in the course but not listed as a minimum requirement,
o adding additional graphics or pictures,
o applying varying color schemes,
o creative formatting of the Excel chart,
o using various design backgrounds with presentation slides,
o creating your own slide background instead of using a design template,
