Evaluation, Application & Effects

Introduction

Evaluation, Application and Effects 1. Compare using ICT to create your system rather than creating it by hand. Using ICT makes producing the presentation much easier. This is mainly because you can change, edit and move things at a touch of a button without having to completely redo the piece of work. You can add colour and special effects using specialist programmes, making it look unique to other presentations. Also if you did it by hand, if you made a mistake, you would need to cross it out which would make the look less impressive and professional, but using a computer you can easily correct it and it will still look perfect. Also if you want to reproduce a leaflet it would be extremely time consuming whilst on a computer, it would be simple. When producing a leaflet by hand, I would probably use a template to make straight bigger letters, and write all the information by hand with a medium-sized pen. For the photographs, I would print them immediately from the computer, onto photographic paper and then cut the pictures out. I would then glue the photos onto the paper in suitable place. ...read more.

If a not very sensitive touch-screen was bought then people who do not press the screen very hard may not get a good response from the computer. Also if the screen was outside it could become weathered if in an unsheltered area and could be ruined. The computer system may need editing on a yearly basis and this could end up being expensive. And updating it means that regular people would have to learn how to use it again which could lead to confusion. Also, people who are house-bound, and receive home visits, would not be able to access the system, so a hard-copy should also be available for their reference. Benefits - If a computer system needs editing or changing for any reason, it can easily be done via a connected Windows computer. This is helpful because if it does need editing, the whole thing does have to be remade or printed in large scale. Also, once the system is up and running, and clear and easy instructions are displayed, most people would be capable of using it. ...read more.

Conclusion

The receptionist would also have more time to spend on doing actual important tasks, rather than just answering questions from customers who have basic queries, like asking the opening times. 5. What training will be required to enable new staff (or those not computer literate) to use your system? Staff would need to be trained effectively how to use a computer if need be, and the specific programs would also need to be explained. They would need to be taught: the basic workings of how to use a computer, how to open Microsoft PowerPoint, how to view the presentation and how they could edit the presentation. This is needed because it means all staff members will be computer-literate and if anything needs to be changed, a specific person does not have to be found to fix the problem. This training could be carried out by either sending the employees on an ICT course, or by giving them a copy of the User Guide which I have created. All instructions would need to be followed carefully by the learners, to allow them to gain these skills. ...read more.
