Slushie World: An In-Class Access Database Tutorial
Wynn, Donald E., Jr.; Pratt, Renée M. E.
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n2 p8-13 Mar 2015
The Slushie World case study is designed to teach the basics of Microsoft Access and database management over a series of three 75-minute class sessions. Students are asked to build a basic database to track sales and inventory for a small business. Skills to be learned include table creation, data entry and importing, form and report design, switchboards, and numerous single and multiple table query designs. The resulting application is sufficient for students to identify a number of basic functions available to the small business, including order entry, sales reports, customer information, and more. The case is designed to be used in a course where the students have little or no prior relational database experience, such as an Introduction to MIS course.
