Instruction pages for all self-paced courses
These projects are long and involved. Please save backups as you work, just in case you need to retrace your steps. Periodically do a "save as" to a new version of the file.
You only have two attempts to take each quiz, we suggest you review the quiz before you start the project; it will help you find the answers later.
Choose your file(s) or folder(s); pull down the File menu and choose the Compress option; the .zip will appear on your Desktop. See this diagram.
Students often make zips that do not contain files; so check your process before you turn in projects. After you create the zip archive, please check it by opening it on your computer to make sure the files reappear and open. Move the zip into a new folder before opening it, so the files do not clutter up your existing work.
If you are working on a computer lacking the ATC fonts, feel free to substitute with a similar font.
You can install the fonts provided by ATC. Macintosh users in the lab can activate these fonts with the Linotype Font Explorer application. Select the Linotype Font Explorer from the Applications folder. Click on the "ATC fonts" folder to activate the project fonts.
The fonts are available on the CBE Lab server, AVA-Disciplines, in the GRDSN > Against_the_Clock folder.
The files used in the projects are available from the CBE Lab server, AVA-Disciplines, in the GRDSN > Against_the_Clock_CC2014-student_files folder. The first users of the textbooks can download the file from the ATC website. Instructions are on the inside back cover of the book. If you are checking out a book from the library or lab, you probably will not be able to use the code on the book, so copy the files off the server.
