Experience is a primary foundation
for developing and acquiring knowledge. Education is premised upon
creating, establishing, and/or replicating experiences that have the capability
of building and extending skills and capabilities in order to expand one's base
of knowledge. Involvement is a key aspect of fostering experiences through
which knowledge can be derived. One learns best, by doing. Active
participation enhances learning.
This course involves a variety
of activities, which have been designed to provide experiences and
insights that are "developmental building blocks" for professionals
who will have organizational responsibility for Systems Analysis and Design
within their careers.
One of the most important aspects of instructor-led learning is the ability to
interact with the instructor and other students in the class. Since online
students are not together in the same room, we accomplish this interaction
using tools available in the online classroom:

Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly.

Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
