PowerPoint Disaster!

This has been an unsatisfactory day. My task was to complete a PowerPoint presentation about vegetables. I have allocated a long time to this task, in preparing the information needed and trying to make the presentation look exciting. However having not been taught how to produce a spectacular looking presentation, I was therefore unable to achieve the quality that was expected of me. I tried to do the task to the fullest extent of my knowledge, but in truth I do not yet know all the functions that are available to me while using this software.

I am currently experimenting with different web tools freely available upon the internet. I have started to experiment with Sitekreator. This is a program that allows you to create your own websites and publish them upon the net. After the introductory window, very little information about how to use the program is available. However with a bit of experimenting you can generally work out how to use the different function of the website designer. If you would like to visit my website follow the link below:

I have found that the last week has led me to be rather concerned. I know that many assignments are on their way but I hoped that they would be fairly spread out, but now I am not sure if they will be. I was told that I would have six assignments before Christmas and at the moment I have only received one. This means that potentially I could have to do five assignments to complete in around a month. This makes me a little anxious that I may not have enough time to complete all the assignments to the highest standard possible.

First assignment

I have got my first assignment for my computer course. This is for software installation and it involves extensive research into software licenses, software piracy and the registration of software. At first it seemed a daunting task as I have no information about these areas. However after doing the research I feel that I will be able to tackle this task. I started by trying to interpret the exact information that the question requires. After that I planned my answer and wrote out the answer in rough. I then started typing it up and making alterations where needed. The work is now checked and ready to be looked at by my software installation teacher. I am a bit concerned about the outcome as I know so little about computing but I feel a lot is expected of me due to academic results in the past. It makes me feel a little pressured.
