1 INTRODUCTION - Information Systems & Technology (Compulsory) This is one of the 4 courses designed for Semester 1 of Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) Degree program. Information Systems and Technology course aims to develop an understanding of the components of Computer Based Information Systems (CBIS), their functions and types of CBIS used in organizations. Furthermore, it aims to provide a general understanding of the Information Systems (IS) development process as well as ethical and security issues associated with the use of information systems. CREDITS: 04 LEARNING OUTCOMES After successful completion of this course students will be able to: Describe the components of a computer based information systems. Explain different types of information systems and their use. Describe the IS development process. Describe management challenges/issues associate with the use of computer based information systems as well as methods that can be used to prevent these challenges/issues. MINOR MODIFICATIONS When minor modifications are made to this syllabus, those will be reflected in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the latest version can be downloaded from the relevant course page of VLE. Please inform your suggestions and comments through the VLE. ONLINE LEARNING MATERIALS AND ACTIVITIES You can access all learning materials and this syllabus in the VLE: if you are a registered student of BIT degree program. It is very important to participate in learning activities given in the VLE to learn this subject. ONLINE ASSIGNMENTS The assignments consist of two quizzes, assignment quiz 1 (It covers the first half of the syllabus) and assignment quiz 2 (It covers the second half of the syllabus). Maximum mark for a question is10, minimum mark for a question is 0 (irrespective of negative scores).
