MIS3501.001 – important remarks

Hello everyone,

Here are some important items I want to share with you as a follow up to class yesterday.

  1. A video review of the class exercise was posted.  Please take advantage of that.  See the exercises tab.
  2. Challenge solutions are now to be submitted electronically.  No more paper.  See the challenges tab.
  3. I get the impression that most students are not reading the textbook.  Please note that reading assignments are listed on the class schedule.  See the schedule tab.

So, for next class, you should read pages 72 – 91 in your text.  If you haven’t bee reading at all – please take a look at the previous reading assignments.

Doing the reading is one more way to help you digest this material.

-Prof Shafer

P.S. – Sign up for the career fair!   This means you!
