Case Study Example

I’ve built this page as an example for what your Case Study project should look like. Begin by opening up a new “page” from your WordPress dashboard (not a “post”). Depending on how your settings and theme work together, creating a new page may place a button at the top of your site; some people may need to go back into the “Menus” screen (through the “Appearance” tab in your dashboard) to create that button. Whether your site automatically generates a button or not, you’ll need to differentiate the button from the title of the page. The button should read “Case Study” and the page should be titled with the name of your case (for example, “The Migration of Funhaus to YouTube”).  This block of text (where mine is right now) should be your introduction to the project and should be 100-150 words. This paragraph you’re looking at reads EXACTLY 150 words.

This is where your conclusion to the project should be. For a new media designed project like this, your conclusion is even more important than it is in a traditional essay because you can’t assume that the reader has been all the through all of your buttons. Here, in your conclusion, you’re going make some general observations, connections, and maybe even an argument about what you learned while doing the project. You can make brief mention of things you discussed in your more detail in your individual body posts (which are available as links in the buttons above), and you may conclude with an extension for further research. All of the pieces of writing (the intro, conclusion, and the smaller posts) should mention, quote from, and link to outside sources that you used in your research of the case. You can even link your own individual posts in the conclusion.
