This assignment uses a new teaching approach that we are developing for teaching applications skills. We call it Watch-Practice-Apply. This new approach employs three teaching tools:
We have broken the important aspects of Microsoft Excel into five modules:
Module 1 provides an overview of Excel and how it is used. It also provides a look at an example spreadsheet that is very similar to the one you will submit for a grade. Modules 2-5 each includes a 10-Minute tutor, SAM training, and instructions for the file you will submit for your grade.
We hope you find this new approach an effective way to learn. After you finish the assignment, please use the feedback link provided at the end to let us know what you think of this system. It will take less than a minute and it will assist us in refining our teaching tools for future assignments and future semester.
