This is a very detailed assignment that has students create, monitor, and adjust a Google AdWords campaign for two landing pages. Students must adhere to a budget and maximize results. The assignment is very comprehensive, and provides students the opportunity to gain skills in web advertising. There are many practical applications, and in fact the author suggests students have a personal site that they want to use for the assignment.
