Mapping System Development Goals and Methods to Web Page Projects.
Beise, Catherine M.; King, Merle; Myers, Martha E.
World Wide Web page projects offer both opportunities and limitations as hands-on projects for students in systems development classes. This paper outlines common pedagogical goals for systems analysis and design courses and then maps the advantages and disadvantages of Web projects over more traditional systems development projects. An example advantage is a greater likelihood of project completion by the end of the term, while a potential problem is the lack of fit between Web page design and traditional modeling tools and techniques. The conclusion is that Web page projects can be beneficial when applied to appropriate objectives and courses. (Author/AEF)
