Description

It has been challenging for instructors in the MIS/IST discipline to engage students by using a lecture-only teaching technique. This paper presents a set of nifty assignments that consist of the instructor-led hands-on exercises and the take-home individual assignments in an introductory MIS course. Students were instructed to use an online tool to exchange encrypted messages and use Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to deploy virtual machines running PrestaShop, an eCommerce application. The results of a student survey showed that the assignments were fun, relevant, useful, and helpful in improving the students’ engagement and learning. \
