1.8 Software and Technology Exercises

Learning Objectives

  1. Download software from an Internet site and install it on a computer.
  2. Capture a computer screen and paste it into a word processing document.
  3. Create a folder of project management web addresses in a web browser.

Download and Install Adobe Reader

There are many programs that are useful for project managers that can be downloaded from a website. Some of them are free while others are trial versions or are available for a license fee. To download and install software on a computer, you must have administrative rights on that computer. If you are trying to use a computer at a company for your homework in this class, you probably do not have administrative rights to install software. You need to use a private computer on which you can log in as the administrator or as a user with rights to install software.

Alternatively, in some campus computer labs you are allowed to install software, but the computer is refreshed to its original configuration when the machine is restarted. If you use a computer in a common lab, be sure to complete the assignment before the machine is restarted.

In this exercise, you download and install Adobe Reader. This program allows you to read files that are saved in the PDF format. This format is very popular because it allows distribution of documents that may be easily viewed but not changed.

How to Download and Install Adobe Reader

  1. Using a web browser, go to http://www.adobe.com/reader. The Adobe home page displays as shown in Figure 1.12 "Adobe Reader Download Page".

    Figure 1.12 Adobe Reader Download Page

  2. Click the check boxes next to optional features, such as virus scans or toolbars, to deselect them and then click Download now.
  3. Follow the directions on the screen to install Adobe Reader.
  4. When the installation process is complete, the program is added to the list of available programs on your computer. It will start automatically whenever you try to open a file that is saved using the PDF file format.
  5. From the list of programs on your computer start Adobe Reader to confirm that it is successfully installed, as shown in Figure 1.13 "Adobe Reader Installed".

    Figure 1.13 Adobe Reader Installed

  6. Review your work and use the following rubric to determine its adequacy:

    Element Best Adequate Poor
    File name N/A
    Downloaded software from an Internet site and installed it on a computer Program is installed and functioning Same as Best Did not allow time to find a computer on which software could be installed; process failed
  7. Submit evidence of completion as directed by the instructor.

Download and Install Google Earth

There are many programs that are useful for project managers that can be downloaded from a website. Some of them are free while others are trial versions or are available for a license fee. To download and install software on a computer, you must have administrative rights on that computer. If you are trying to use a computer at a company for your homework in this class, you probably do not have administrative rights to install software. You need to use a private computer on which you can log in as the administrator or as a user with rights to install software.

Alternatively, in some campus computer labs you are allowed to install software, but the computer is refreshed to its original configuration when the machine is restarted. If you use a computer in a common lab, be sure to complete the assignment before the machine is restarted.

In this exercise, you download and install Google Earth. This program provides information that would be valuable to a project manager who needs to consider the implications of the location of a project.

How to Download and Install Google Earth

  1. Using a web browser, go to http://earth.google.com. The Google Earth home page displays as shown in Figure 1.14 "Google Earth Home Page".

    Figure 1.14 Google Earth Home Page

  2. Click the Download Google Earth button.
  3. Scroll through and review the Terms of Service. See Figure 1.15 "Terms of Service".

    Figure 1.15 Terms of Service

  4. Click the Agree and Download button if you agree to abide by the terms. If not, contact your instructor for an alternative assignment.
  5. Choose a folder into which the file will be downloaded. The default choice in Windows is usually the Downloads folder in My Documents. Make note of where the file will be placed so you can find it in the next step.

    The file that is downloaded is a program that can be executed by clicking the file name. It is an installation program that manages the rest of the download and installation process. In some browsers, the option to click the file name is available from the browser window, and in others, you must use a file management program like Windows Explorer to find the file and then double-click the file name. This process is typical of most programs that you download and install.

  6. Click or double-click the file name to start the installation. A security warning box may display seeking your permission to install a program, as shown in Figure 1.16 "Permission to Run the Installation Program". Only programs from trusted sites should be installed.

    Figure 1.16 Permission to Run the Installation Program

  7. Click the Run button. The program will contact the Google Earth website and begin the process of downloading the main part of the program. A window with a progress bar displays to indicate how much of the file has been successfully transferred, as shown in Figure 1.17 "Progress Bar".

    Figure 1.17 Progress Bar

  8. When the installation process is complete, the program starts. Any location on earth may be entered, and a satellite image with a variety of accompanying information is displayed, as shown in Figure 1.18 "Google Earth Installed".

    Figure 1.18 Google Earth Installed

  9. Enter a location of your choice in the Fly to box and then press Enter.
  10. Capture the screen and then paste it into a word processing document.
  11. Review your work and use the following rubric to determine its adequacy:

    Element Best Adequate Poor
    File name N/A
    Downloaded software from an Internet site and installed it on a computer Program is installed and functioning Same as Best Did not allow time to find a computer on which software could be installed; process failed
  12. Submit evidence of completion as directed by the instructor.

Capture a Screen Using Windows XP and the Print Screen Button

The operating system of your computer manages the display on the monitor or screen. The operating system can make a copy of the screen and save it to disk or to the clipboard—a temporary storage area—and then the image of the screen can be pasted into a word processing document. The document can be saved and then attached to an e-mail or otherwise sent to team members. This skill might be used to illustrate a computer problem, illustrate a point, or prove that you have followed directions properly.

How to Capture a Screen Using Windows XP and the Print Screen Button

  1. Open a blank document in your word processing program.
  2. Save the file to a folder of your choice, such as Ch01StudentName, where you use your name without spaces in place of StudentName. Save the file as a Word 97–2003 file type.
