Introduction

They also use a lot of technology in their studio, for example to organise their play list of songs, to organise jingles and advert times. In the Advertising department they use ICT to listen to adverts to see if the adverts that are going to be used are ok to put on air.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay


A fascinating topic but unfortunately not nearly well enough researched so that we don't really get any detailed knowledge of the ICT hardware and software there and how it is used.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite poor. The report does state a number of instances the business will use IT. However the report doesn't explain any of these, and this will not gain high marks without essential justification. The report describes how the business use Microsoft Office to operate a number of aspects within the business. However the report is missing a large reason for this, as the business will use Microsoft Excel to record their finance's, which is a major aspect of the business.

Level of analysis

The report states 'In the Advertising department they use ICT to listen to adverts to see if the adverts that are going to be used are ok to put on air.'. However how does the business use IT to see if the adverts are OK to be placed on air. The report could include 'IT will allow the business to check if the advert is appropriate to be put on air, by checking if it's suitable'.Though-out the report, it's lacking any reasoning for the points that the student is making. For example the report states 'The new generation of radio (DAB) has made Capital radio use ICT to make their station and owned stations to sound better. '. Although why is this necessary? The report could include 'By implementing the DAB system, this allows the radio to acquire additional market share, as the quality will be greater than their competitors'. This would justify their reasoning, and this is lacking though-out the report. This is quite worrying, as this will not gain high marks if the report is not justified.

Quality of writing

The writing is quite in-formal, as there is a few missing words and the spelling isn't correct in some places. The student would need to re-write a large part of the essay to allow the examiner to actually understand the report with ease.
