Max Labs 2 – Help Desk sessions

Max Labs 2 Help Desk sessions will be available leading up to the submission date of each assignment. A team of Information Technology Assistants (ITAs) will be running Max Lab Help Desk Sessions. The sessions will be held in either Alter 602 or 603, all five days of the week, at various times. Two ITAs will be on hand during each session. The ITAs will not be leading any sort of instruction as they are primarily available to help with any questions or difficulties that you have as you arise.

Many of you will find you are able to complete the assignments on your own without any difficulty, and that is great. But, if you want to attempt the assignment somewhere you know there is a person on hand who can answer any potential questions, then please attend one of the many Max Lab Help Desk Sessions.

MIS 2101 Exam 2 Review Session

The Diamond Peer Teachers will hold an MIS 2101 Exam 2 review session on Tuesday, March 21st, from 5:00 – 6:00 pm in Alter Hall Room 602. There will be three main parts to the review:

1. General studying advice (essentially, Sean will encourage you to spend a lot of time reviewing the videos and PowerPoints)

2. Mini Case Example – Sean has created a mini case that is similar in structure to the mini case you will see on the exam. It will contain: a narrative, a swimlane diagram with missing components, an ERD with missing components, and a series of multiple choice questions that ask you to fill in the missing components from the diagrams. Sean will distribute the mini case and give you 30 minutes to complete the questions, and then will go over it as a group.

3. Sean will answer any questions you have about content covered in the course so far.

For those who cannot attend, the session will be recorded, and the link will be posted shortly after the session ends.
