Use of ICT

Extracts from this document...


8.0 Use of I.CT. 8.1 Comparing the new and old system 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. Marketing is also much easier online, companies; charities have more publicity, purely because of online presence, which brings in a wider range of audience. Now Mr Jones can do surveys, collect opinions advertise his charities, arrange events, all online. 8.2 Justifying use of ICT Using ICT makes marketing much easier, Mr Jones can use this website to expand the charity and hence raise more money. Also it is much more eco-friendly as the charity is not producing so many leaflets which are being thrown away or left as litter. ...read more.


This is helpful because if it does need editing, the whole thing doesn't have to be remade or printed in large scale, like the leaflet campaign. Also, once the system is up and running, and clear and easy instructions are displayed, most of the staff Mr Jones employs would be capable of using it, as the instructions run through each stage with users. 8.5 Effect of ICT in Enviro KM Using ICT will affect the way that staff works dramatically. Contacting and informing potential volunteers via the telephone is time consuming and expensive and hence more time is spent on admin than charity itself. Hence, more people would have to be employed as actual 'head of volunteering' meaning more capital spent on human resources, hence less pay to existing staff. If the charity were to expand the website would get bigger and Mr Jones could create a staff login area, that staff could share ideas online, and could work at home. However, staff may not like the new technological way or working, and may realise that Enviro KM is not the right atmosphere to work in, which may lead to a high turnover of staff soon after the changes are introduced. ...read more.


target for hackers, therefore I suggest that Mr Jones uses encryption, to solve this problem * I would like to add some more multimedia and hence expand the website, with embed videos, games and maybe music he could do very easily, this would help the charity as it would attract younger users to the site and hence to the charity. * Secondly, to increase user interactivity I would increase the number of quizzes, suitable for all age groups. * Thirdly, to connect the website to a database, to have a members area. * Fourthly I would have created a mailing list, to send out a newsletter online * Fifthly I would have created an online carbon footprint calculator, which would be fun yet informative and make users aware of their individual carbon emissions. * Packages, such as Google Analytics could be used to measure the success of the company's, search, new media and offline advertising efforts. ?? ?? ?? ??
