4 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 4 Assignment Overview Discussions: Each week you will be given a question to respond to that relates to the weekly topic. Provide insightful and thorough responses to the questions. You will also post drafts of some of your research work to the discussion for feedback from your peers, including an abstract of your research paper and your PowerPoint presentation. Online discussion postings should be complete by Wednesday of the assigned week. After each week s response to discussion questions are posted, you will need to respond to at least two other student s postings. These responses should further the discussion of the topic. Responses such as I agree and Good posting will not receive any credit. Provide thoughtful responses, questions, or supporting material. These are due by Sunday of the assigned week. : Each week you are required to find an article related to the assigned weekly subject area and provide a summary of the article. The summaries should be no more than one page and cover all the major areas of the article. Along with the summary, provide a one paragraph analysis of the article, relating the material to your work or the environment around you. Basically, how does this article affect you? You must also provide the URL for the topic. Each article summary is worth 10 points. Research Paper Topic: Each topic must be approved by your instructor. Since it is possible your initial choice of topic will be unacceptable or need to be modified, you are encouraged to submit your topic as early as possible. Submit your topic in the Discussion area of D2L, under the heading Research Paper Topics. The most common problem is selecting a topic that is too broad. For example, The Effects of the World Wide Web on Office Productivity is too broad a topic. There have been books written on this topic and it would be impossible to do it justice in a 15-page paper. Depth is more important than breadth when considering possible topics, so try to narrow the topic. A wide variety of topics are appropriate and you are encouraged to pick a topic that is of particular interest to you. The topic you choose and the level of discussion is to be appropriate for a seniorlevel culminating-experience course. Example Topics Outsourcing IT The internal and external effects Cyber Security How to protect your company from attacks Strategic IT Planning What and How to plan growth Abstract: Write an abstract of your paper of no more than one page outlining your topic and research. This should summarize your paper, providing an outline of your research and your conclusions. Ensure that you follow MLA guidelines when completing this abstract. During week 4, you will be required to post a DRAFT copy of your abstract in the Discussion area of D2L for peer review. The final copy will be uploaded to the Dropbox area of D2L during week 7. Bibliography: The bibliography for your research paper must contain at least 15 sources and be compliant with MLA standards. All source material must be properly cited in the body of the paper using MLA. I do not expect to see references to articles from popular magazines/books such as Newsweek, Time, Omni, etc. Also, wiki and other collaborative sources are not allowed. All resources should be approved through the instructor prior to using to ensure proper source. During Week 4, you will need to upload your bibliography in the Dropbox area of D2L. I will review and provide comments should any of your resources not meet minimum standards.

5 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 5 PowerPoint Presentation: You are required to create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation for your research paper. The PowerPoint should cover all main points of your paper and be easy to follow. Slides should have talking points only. Design should be professional; as if you are presenting to the president of your company. You are required to record your voice-over within PowerPoint, presenting your topic as you would to a classroom of IT professionals. Use your headset to Record Slide Show from within PowerPoint. This will enable me to download, open and simply watch/listen to your presentation. During week 5, you will need to post a DRAFT copy of your presentation in the Discussion area of D2L for peer review (audio narration is not required for the draft copy). The final copy will be uploaded to the Dropbox area of D2L during week 7. The presentation should include the following: Title Page No more than 20 supporting slides Professional Template Slide transitions Bibliography All graphs, statistics and quotes must be cited properly Format: The final paper must be submitted as a Microsoft Word document of at least 15 and no more than 20 pages in length (double-spaced). Pages must be numbered. Use MLA style for your citations. The final paper is due WEDNESDAY of week 8 and should be uploaded to the dropbox marked as such. The final paper should include: title page (which does not count in the 15-page requirement) abstract introduction body summary/conclusions reference page(s) Originality: Research papers must be original work for this course. Do not submit a paper used in another course. Your paper will be checked for originality through turnitin.com. Ensure you understand plagiarism and MLA standards for citing your sources. Plagiarism will result in receiving zero credit on the assignment and will be reported. Due Date: Your final research paper should be submitted no later than Wednesday at midnight of the eighth week of the term. You are strongly encouraged to submit an early draft of your paper. I will be pleased to make suggestions and provide feedback that might improve the quality of your paper. If you decide to do this, send me a draft at least a week prior to the due date. It will take me a day or two to look over your work and send my comments back to you and you will need a few days to make whatever modifications were suggested.
