Course Description:
Continuation of IS315. The student will continue to study the concepts and methods used in a system development life cycle.In addition, the student will gain practical experience by working on various projects. The student will use a CASE tool for his/her project work. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: IS315

Educational Philosophy:
I believe people have a wide variety of learning styles and part of the job of an instructor is to use those styles to help everybody learn.   We will have a variety of learning experiences including lectures, discussions, hands on assignments and an individual project.  I also believe you get as much from the educational process as you put in to it.  Students and teachers have to be actively involved in the entire learning process. This is especially true in an online environment. 

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Distinguish logical versus physical models and translate logical process and data models into physical design models using design/ CASE software.
  2. Evaluate and make architectural design decisions given a problem scenario: Client Server, Centralized versus Decentralized, Database and distribution of data, User and system interface alternatives (inputs/outputs)
  3. Explain design principles for Input/Output with regard to human interaction and user acceptability.
  4. Explain advantages and disadvantages of data storage options (i.e. Relational Database, Object Database, Conventional Files and Data Warehouse)
  5. Practice key concepts of analysis and design as well as advance techniques such as JAD, Prototyping, USE CASES and/or other OOA/OOD techniques.
  6. Evaluate strengths/weaknesses and applicable roles of several strategies/methodologies for design of information systems including Model Driven, RAD, Agile, OO development, and Prototyping.
  7. Apply Quality Assurance steps that can be taken in all phases of development to ensure a quality product and user acceptance.
  8. Communicate both orally and in writing as an individual and as a member of a team.


Core Assessment:

All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes.  The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a final exam which counts for 20% of the grade. Questions on the final exam will be developed to test at least eight of the ten course core objectives.

Class Assessment:
Please See Online Class Overview

Grading:
I will always award the highest possible grade that will not embarrass either of us. There will be a total of 100 points available during the course.  These points are divided between a variety of assignments shown in the assignments section of the syllabus.  Grades will follow the normal Park University scale below:

A =  90- 100% (or 90 points or higher)
B = 80-89% (or 80 to 89 points)
C =  70-79% (or 70 to 79 points)
D = 60-69% (or 60 to 69 points)
F = < 60% (59 or fewer points)

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Work is expected to be turned in by midnight the day it is due.  If you cannot meet a deadline, let me know as soon as possible, BEFORE the deadline.  Leave an email or voice mail before the deadline and we should be able to make arrangements for late work.  If you make contact and have a valid reason, I will accept work up to one week late.  Any work later than one week will not be accepted.  Failure to make contact before the deadline will (except in extreme situations) result in a zero for the missed assignment.



Classroom Rules of Conduct:

1.  Everyone must participate in weekly discussions. Conventions of "on-line etiquette," which include courtesy to all users, will be observed.

2.  You are expected to post your own original comment to a discussion question and a homework problem weekly. You should also post a meaningful response to at least two of your fellow students. You should be prepared to explain and defend your discussion postings. In addition, all members of the class are encouraged and expected to participate in any and all discussions.  There is no such thing as a private or closed conversation in the discussion threads.

3.  Don't take comments in the discussion threads personally.

4.  Do not aim comments at individuals, that is inappropriate.  If you notice comments that appear to be personally directed, please email me and I will take care of it. 

5.  Please use email for messages or questions to the instructor and other students. The Class Conference is for discussion of the assigned topics and peer review comments relevant to the topics.

6. You are required to log in to our classroom each week.

  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  3. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  4. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  5. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  6. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  7. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
ONLINE NOTE: An attendance report of "P" (present) will be recorded for students who have logged in to the Online classroom at least once during each week of the term. Recording of attendance is not equivalent to participation. Participation grades will be assigned by each instructor according to the criteria in the Grading Policy section of the syllabus.
