Data Centric Application Development


MIS3501 Challenges are to be completed by students on their own, outside of class time. Challenges may require students to look up and make use of the material in their textbook, or online resources such as W3Schools.

Challenges are not graded but are usually the primary determining factor in the students’ participation grade. (That is, if you do all the challenges, and turn them in, your participation grade will most likely be 100%.)

Challenges should be uploaded to the class server on or about the due date. The upload process is an important skill for students to master.
