As you start your investigation into an introduction to information technology (IT), you will take this opportunity in the first assignment to create the template for you to add your assignments each week. This first assignment will not only have you investigate systems, but also establish the framework for future submissions.
The assignments each week build upon the work and knowledge of previous weeks. You will create 1 single document that contains all of the weekly assignments, in separate sections, culminating with the final submission being a single document with all of the weekly assignments contained within.
You are responsible for adding each of these ongoing Individual Project assignments into your Key Assignment document that will contain all of the assignments completed during this course.
The template document should follow this format:
