Course Syllabus


Information Technology MIS101 helps students understand technical concepts underlying current and future developments in information technology. There will be a special emphasis on computer hardware, computer software and networks.

Students will also gain some hands-on exposure to powerful, high-level tools for making computers do amazing things, without the need for conventional programming languages. Since MIS101 is an introductory course, no knowledge of how computers work or are programmed is assumed.

Lecture notes are Microsoft PowerPoint slides used by the instructor during lectures. They are fairly  comprehensive (typically between 20-30 slides per lecture) but not detailed. Student should refer to the book and write comments and whatever written on the board during class.

Suggested study strategy: write your comments during lecture and read the notes carefully after class.

Student should download the slides and be prepared prior to class.

Student performance will be evaluated during and after completion of the course according to the following breakdown:
Test 1 + Test 2

Three quizzes will be given to student and graded. Assignments are due in class during the due dates. In special circumstances (e.g., illness, holidays) we'll try to be accommodating, if you make arrangements with us in advance. 

Late assignments will be penalized by 10% per 24 hours if you have not made arrangements in advance, and will not be accepted at all 48 hours after the time due.

There are several ways to earn "Class Contribution" points. First and foremost is to come prepared for class, ask questions that other students want to know the answer to, and give clear, brief answers to questions I ask. Second is to be quiet and concentrated in the class.
