SimNet is the software you will use for everything related to your
Microsoft Office In Practice (MOIP) textbook. SimNet contains:
- SimBooks: Each SimBook covers one chapter of the MOIP textbook.
The SimBook describes how to complete the Office tasks covered
in the chapter. It also contains "How To" exercises that have
"Show Me", "Guide Me" and "Let Me Try" activities. "Show Me" is
a video that features a skill. "Guide Me" is a clickable exercise
based on the Show Me skill. "Let Me Try" assesses comprehension
of the skill within a simulation. The SimBook
also includes "Pause and Practice" sections, which guide you through
step-by-step practice within the Office application.
The purpose of the SimBook is
to prepare you for the independent projects, quizzes, and tests.
- Guided Projects: There is a guided project for each chapter that
requires you to download instructions and
a document file. It contains step-by-step instructions for
to complete the project, using the skills covered in
the chapter. You will work directly in the Office application
when completing the project. When you complete the project you
will upload it and get feedback on your results.
The purpose of the guided project is to prepare you
for the independent projects, quizzes, and tests.
