IT 210 Final Project Guidelines and Grading Guide
The final project for this course is the creation of a research paper based on Internship Activities from the text.
The final paper should demonstrate an understanding of the materials in this course, as well as the implications of new knowledge gained. The 3–4-page paper
should integrate new learning into the target company example and internship work. It may include explanations and examples from previous cases and
The purpose of the final paper is for you to synthesize the learning achieved in this course by describing your understanding and application of knowledge in the
area of business systems and the critical thinking process that has evolved. For this assignment you should choose any two of the concepts discussed throughout
the course and integrate your research on these concepts into your case proposal for the target company.
The project is divided into two milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final
submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Four and Six. The final submission will occur in Module Seven.
In this final case study, you will synthesize the concepts learned throughout the course based on a series of Internship Activities that are the first two milestones.
Through the two assignments outlined in Milestones One and Two, you will recommend solutions to Harrison Kirby, while also incorporating additional
perspectives and source material to analyze real world scenarios and provide him with options to consider as part of his strategy to increase revenue and
influence customer interactions and experiences in his small business. You will leverage both the textbook and external sources to complete the final project.
From the milestone assignments, you will find that Kirby is interested in improving his business through the use of technology. As you learned in the first two
cases you worked for Kirby, he is focused on revenue through e-commerce and customer experience through intelligent systems incorporated with his web
presence. Take the opportunity to provide Kirby with some other technology opportunities to consider that would support his business venture in e-commerce
and intelligent systems. Within your final paper, choose two of the concepts below drawn from course readings. Provide detail and an explanation for each
concept, which will demonstrate how each can be leveraged to support business growth and/or create a streamlined operation for Kirby. Make sure to leverage
sound examples, products, and references where appropriate to further substantiate your findings.
