No-code/low-code app development is transforming traditional information system development paradigms. This teaching tip uses an example of course unit of decision support systems (DSS) to demonstrate that introducing no-code system implementation assignments into a course as a replacement for computer programming language exercises can improve student learning. It presents the pedagogical design and the teaching method of no-code DSS implementation. The contents of the pedagogy include key concepts of no-code development, workshops of no-code DSS implementation, and assignments for students. This course unit demands about one-third-credit-hour workload, and can be embedded in a three-credit-hour business course. The preliminary evidence has indicated that the teaching method of no-code DSS implementation is useful for business students.
