Task

You are required to prepare for this Assessment Item by:

  1. READING the Subject outline,
  2. COMPLETING Topic 2 Project Planning
  3. BUILDING your PLAN up from the  Project Title      and Abstract in Assessment Task 1

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Follow the Study Schedule and work with the Topics in      Interact as they provide a “scaffold” for your learning in this      subject.
  2. Develop a detailed Capstone Project Proposal      and Plan using project management software (as listed in the      Study Schedule) and the skills you have acquired from IT Project Management      to develop a project plan with a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS),      milestones and Gantt chart. These tools may help.
    1. MicrosoftProject Pro (http://office.microsoft.com/en-au/project/);
    2. Open source tools like GanttProject (http://www.ganttproject.biz/);
    3. OpenProj(http://sourceforge.net/projects/openproj/)
    4. OpenProject (https://www.openproject.org/about).
    5. ProjectLibre (http://www.projectlibre.org/)
  3. Begin using the ‘project blog‘ as a tool beyond      the weekly progress reportsfor your chosen emerging technology      topic:
    1. The blog helps you to “think by writing” and       also store your notes, project files and links in a cloud-based service.
    2. Consider sharing the site with your peers as a way to       tell a story and harness each other’s knowledge.
  4. The blog is ideally updated each week with      3 or 4 entries for documenting your project notes and as the foundation      for editing and writing the Capstone Project Report. An ideal blog entry      will have around 50-150 words (150-600 words a week).
