    ICT Evaluation of my materials produced for a "Get Moving" health campaign.

    4 star(s)

    To change my character in my logo to teenager from a man I would use adobe illustrator. I would make the character shorter, clothe him with shorts and have him holding a mp3 player with earphones plugged in as this is the stereotypical teenager, doing this would make it easy for my target audience to relate to the project and logo. Multimedia quiz My quiz is suited to its audience (teenagers; 14-19 year olds) as the questions asked are hard enough that a child from primary school won?t know the answer and easy enough for an adult to answer.

    Disney's E-Commerce Strategy.

    5 star(s)

    This is an important challenge because, as a major media company, it lags far behind its competitors when it comes to controlling Internet user minutes. As of June 2001, Disney provided less than one percent of online usage minutes while top competitor AOL/Time-Warner captured a sizable 32 percent share.2 Based on those statistics, it's easy to conclude that the company's ability to generate worldwide business to business (B2B) and business to customer (B2C) relationships is somewhat diminished due to its weak Internet presence.

    Online Marketing

    4 star(s)

    Ralph F. Wilson, Niche Marketing on the Web, there are three important steps to marketing on the internet; (1) profile your customers, (2) decide where they congregate, and (3) communicate the message where they congregate in a net-acceptable manner (Wilson, 1996). Bluelight.com, Kmart's e-commerce site launched in 1999, is a shining example of this philosophy, having accumulated over 3.5 million customers in less than one year. Although Kmart had an obvious advantage with a n existing strong customer base, these shoppers were not internet customers. In an effort to establish a web based customer segment, they targeted these existing customers by placing Bluelight.com CD ROM's which provided information, special offers, and Blue Light specials on-line, throughout all of their stores.

    If the IT industry is such a big business why do so many dot-coms fail?

    4 star(s)

    95 percent of dot-com businesses fail. So what is the cause of so many failures? These five factors cover the main reasons. 1. The Wrong Marketing Mindset Letting your customers know that you exist is very important because people don't walk in and out a web page like they do in a shop. You need a good name so everyone will remember it. Marketing an on line business is not as easy as putting signs in the local paper and the Yellow Pages or handing out flyers and waiting for people to word your business forward. The web is a whole new game with different rules.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Discuss the factors determining network specification for a small business.

    "In conclusion, if cost is your main issue and you are not too concerned about the flexibility of your network, a wired LAN is probably the best option. However, the cost of building and implementing a wireless network is decreasing as technology becomes more advanced, so is definitely worth considering if prepared to pay a small amount more. Security on both types of networks is moderate - ultimately, regardless of whether you go for wireless or wired, your network will be as secure as you are prepared to make it, with the introduction of firewalls etc. Both type of networks perform well and are generally similar in terms of reliability, although it is important to be aware of problems with newer hardware. Installing a wired network is more time consuming and costly, due to amendments to furniture/walls to accommodate cabling."
