Enhancing the Value of the Capstone Experience Course
Schwieger, Dana; Surendran, Ken
Information Systems Education Journal, v8 n29 Jun 2010
Capstone courses in MIS, CIS and CS programs are commonly incorporated into curriculum these days as they can be used effectively to assess several program objectives. In this paper, the authors discuss the usefulness of a combined Capstone Experience class consisting of CS/CIS and MIS students. The authors point out how this class provided considerable opportunity for collaborative learning, served as an instrument for assessing the respective program objectives relating to both technical and professional (soft) skills, and met the learning outcomes of the university's general educational requirements.
