Model Course - Systems Analysis

Model Course - Systems Analysis

This CSOM course introduces students to “a set of widely used techniques for the design and improvement of information systems” (see the detailed syllabus). To give students a sense of how they “operate in the professional world,” it takes an approach of experiential learning.  The Canvas site serves this purpose in a number of ways, prompting active responses to readings through Discussions and guiding students through the stages of a collaborative assignment.  A chronological structure and timely announcements help students keep on task with what’s next.

What to look for

Announcements with timely information to guide student preparation for class

Assignments used to administer group projects in stages

Discussions for reading reflections, with attached rubric authored in a page
