Introduction

Advantages and disadvantages of using I.T. When doing drafts for your coursework using I.T. you can amend errors without having to rewrite the whole piece of that essay again, saving you time to do other work. While in the other hand if you were doing all your coursework by hand you will get tired writing out whole essays to correct just a few mistakes. You won't need storage space to file your work as it will all be saved on the computers hard drive, which will save you money as there is no need to purchase expensive filing cabinets. If you do use I.T. there is a possibility of your computer crashing leaving you with no coursework, leaving you to type it all up again.

So you save your work on a regular basis, so that can also be lost by unauthorised users accessing your computer and deleting data.
