This is done in a number of different ways -- sometimes cumulative papers, sometimes practical hands-on experimentation with a tool of some sort, sometimes reflections on a place of work or life. The common thread is personal application, aimed at demonstrating a cumulative knowledge and understanding of the course's material.;For this module, the Project will take the form of encounters with online Internet-based resources of various forms but with the purpose of identifying different types of information systems that are being used in the real world.;Here you can find information about the different types of information systems available out there.;Introduction to Information Systems.
