    Hey there,

    I've just been given the criteria for my latest piece of I.T. coursework, and wondered whether you lot could help me out.

    I have the choice of two projects, a), or b). I would like some opinions on which one I should choose, as my I.T. teacher said that people generally get better marks on choice b), but what do you think?
    I have to cover 22 different "Key Skills" in the coursework, as well as create this.

    a) Produce a short, illustrated children's book. This should include:
    • a suitable cover;
    • an advert for the write on the back cover;
    • a simple story in a suitable easy to read font;
    • illustrations, which could be clip art/pics from the internet.
    b) Produce a promotion package for a newly formed company. This should include:
    • a suitable logo for the company;
    • a business card;
    • letter headed paper (possiby footered as well);
    • an introdcutory leaflet, suitable for presentation to a prospective client, giving brief details offered by the company.

    I could never write an IT document for little kids but I tend to be a pretty good business writer when I want to. Whatever you're best at.

    Hmm... it's hard to do either. I would strongly suggest coming up with specifics before doing this... or do it on an existing story/business. It's a lot harder than peopel think to just make things up as you go along... It'd probably more work to do the promo package than the childrens book.. but yeah, your choice.

    I don't see how either one really relates to IT. Personally though, I'd go with B. It's more businesslike and practical.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    The second option seems like it would have more use for you in the real world. These two options seem mostly unrelated to each other. If the teacher says students get better grades on the second option, that's probably the project s/he would prefer students choose.

    Well.. I'm assuming here, but GCSE last time I checked had to do with general education, standard classes everyone has to take towards a degree. For example, I'm not going to be using literature in Civil Engineering, but I still have to take the class. It sounds a lot like a technical communication course to me.

    Yes Brak, GCSE is academical and there is something called GNVQ which is vocational. When I was at school I did a GNVQ in ICT. But what he is explaining sounds more vocational to me, maybe it is VGCSE (Vocational GCSE).

    Personally I would do the second one.
