Because this week's PowerPoint assignment requires that you refer to images of charts and diagrams and recreate them in your own slide presentation, you'll need to refer to the pdf file "Week5_PPT_HW109.pdf" that can be found in document sharing. You'll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed to read the file (most students will already have this software but if you do not, go to http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html to download the free reader application).
After putting together an annotated bibliography in part 3 of the research project, you should have a handle on one half of the research documentation process. In this step of the project you will practice the second half of the process - in-text citation. Complete this part of the research project as follows:
Information Technology Offshoring
According to Aspray, Mayadas and Vardi, it is inevitable that globalization generally and offshoring particularly will continue to grow in the foreseeable future. The factors that they attribute this fact to include improvements in technology such as inexpensive broadband networks, changes in work processes that lend the ability to offshore discrete portions of processes, the rise of companies who exist specifically to facilitate the offshoring process for others, and the improvements internationally in technical education (9).
Woodward claims that with careful planning and execution, offshoring initiatives can result in reductions in cost of up to 20 percent (1). Aspray, Mayadas and Vardi are more skeptical and caution that "offshoring magnifies existing risks and creates new and often poorly understood or addressed threats to national security, business property and processes, and individuals' privacy" (8). The botXXXXX XXXXXne for information technology workers in the United States is that offshoring is transforming the marketplace for their skills. "IT professionals who understand how to interweave their IT skills with new business know-how have the best chance of weathering this transformation" (Benjamin and Smith 94).

As you well know, just because you read it on the World Wide Web doesn't mean it's true. You may have heard the expression "caveat emptor" meaning "let the buyer beware"; here you'll be applying the rule of "caveat lector", or "let the reader beware". This exercise is intended to step you through some questions that will help you evaluate the credibility, authority and usefulness of web sources.
You'll evaluate the following websites:
For BOTH of the above sites answer questions 1-14 below. Please be sure to number your responses, and do not combine your reviews the two sites together. Please keep them separate.
14. Under what circumstances, if any, would you be confident using the information provided by the site? Why? In particular, would you reference the site in a research paper for school? Why or why not?
At this point in the project you should have already researched your topic thoroughly, created an annotated bibliography, put together a written summary of the main points of your presentation and provided in-text citations in the text of that summary indicating where and how you used the sources listed in your annotated bibliography. In the fifth and final portion of the project you'll pull the information you've gathered into a polished PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation is to to be a clear, well written, informative, carefully documented, attractive 10-15 slide presentation summarizing the research you've conducted in the class.
You'll be graded on the content of the presentation, the research you did and the way that you documented that research in your presentation, and your use of PowerPoint, as well as on grammar and spelling. Add your name as footer text. Be sure to consult the detailed grading rubric below for the things you'll need to do to receive a good grade on your final project!Note: Encyclopedias, Wikipedia, and Dictionaries should NOT be included as sources for the Works Cited list.
