After watching the mock case study created by Microsoft employees, I am not exactly sure what their goal was in making the video. I understand their point that too much clutter makes a product look unappealing but I am not sure how this makes fun of Apple products. Apple products, the iPhone for example come in a very clean packaging with nothing much more than the logo on the cover. I believe that Apple has solidified itself as a global company that that is all they need to do to catch a buyers’ attention.

Technical Case Study Step 2: Intramural Sports

By on

After completing research on our case study topic, we learned more about the impact that intramurals have made on students since moving to a more online based platform. Instead of paper files, everything to do with intramurals like registration and scheduling is handled online. Player check in at games and events is even handled with a handheld tablet. IMLeagues is the desktop based integration, IM Mobile site is the phone-friendly version of the desktop website, and REC IT is the mobile app that can be used on a smartphone or tablet to do everything on the go.

After reviewing my documentation draft about Adobe Acrobat, the following checklist has helped me to revise the context. It is my assumption that the reader of An Introductory Guide to Acrobat DC would have some sort of background using computers. Given this assumption, the reader should be able to follow my instructions with their previous experiences. The draft shows that I know what I am talking about because the steps are straightforward and their purpose is evident.

This the first time that I have created a Linkedin profile because I have not found it necessary for the internships and co-ops that I have applied for and held. However, I can see myself using this and connecting with others during my next rotation this fall. I plan to regularly keep track of what goes onto the page much like a Facebook. If you notice something that I should do different with my page, feel free to leave a comment below.

Adobe Acrobat is primarily used for creating and editing PDF files. A Portable Document Format (PDF) is an electronic file that shows text an images as if they were on a printed document. Just about any content can be converted to a PDF file by using Adobe Acrobat. After researching for some beginner tips in Abode Acrobat, I decided to primarily stick with how to create and edit files. For the most part, Acrobat is a structured and simple program but with broad application across the business field.
