Learning outcomes of the course unit
To provide students a basic knowledge of OFFICE platform.
At the end of the course the student should be able to: (1) write and format a text, adding adding objects and fields; (2) manage an excel database and do the following descriptive statistics and graphs; (3) create a powerpoint presentation.
Course contents summary
the course will deal with basic informatics instruments to be used to prepare texts, do a presentation or a database/medical records. In the first part, we will use Microsoft Word (or a freeware analogue). Apart the basic functions, we will consider: the insertion of informatics objects (e.g. excel tables, graphs, formulae, etc), tables, summary, document format, added components. In the second part, we will use Microsoft Powerpoint (or a freeware analogue).
The slides of the course and basic books on the use of Microsoft Office (or freeware analogue).
Lessons will be prevalently frontal, but they will be integrated with examples, simulations and exercises. The student will have the possibility to repeat them directly on his/her computer during the lesson or at home.
The course will be held through lectures to Students either in the classroom (“in presenza”) or in synchronous-streaming (“in telepresenza”) on the Teams platform. Therefore, the opportunity of Student/Teacher interaction will be preserved both face to face and remotely, by the simultaneous use of the Teams platform.
Lectures will be supported by slide presentations, which will be available to students on the Elly platform (https://elly2020.medicina.unipr.it).
Assessment methods and criteria
The exam can be done with computer. It will assess the independence of the student to manage the software through the creation of a project/simulation similar to those shown during the course. It will be a suitability exam without any weight on the final vote of the integrated exam. The exam will be conducted remotely.
