Course Description and Objectives

This course is specifically designed for Doane Lincoln students studying Information Systems Management (ISM) who want to gain experience designing and developing simple, interactive web applications. In order to be most successful in this course, students should have a basic understanding of programming and problem-solving as typically obtained by taking ISM 101 and ISM 102 (or the equivalent courses or experiences).  In this course, students will design and develop simple, interactive web applications.  The applications designed will access a relational database on a web server. Specifically, in this course we will meet the following objectives:

  • Provide the skills to create a web application using various techniques and tools including Visual Studio.NET, ASP.NET, C#.NET, and SQL Server Express Edition.  Note: Students do NOT need prior experience with these tools in order to take this course.
  • Develop the skills necessary to be an effective member of a development team including planning skills, problem-solving skills, and communication skills.
