CIS 790 QUIZ 01a PROF. AUCIELLO
This lesson-quiz represents some 'break-through' thinking:
For example, we are working on the premise that the student
is a committed and active 'participant' in the learning
process; and work is migrating to the Web that can delivers
instruction, provide 'forums', enable critical-thinking and
and research, uses 'peer-learning' principles, and provides
'positive attendance' and highly interactive, participative
environment that can function synchronously (real-time) or
asynchronously (anytime, anywhere)!
Therefore, these quizzes are non-threatening. The rules are
that you must respond to each question, and that you will
compare and discuss your answers with other students or
instructor, ("team learning") and keep re-taking the quiz
until you feel that it is at the '100%' level. You will be
graded on your last and best quiz.
To say it another way, I am using some Form-to-File Web
Technology to give you Read and Write access to a shared
file (virtual discussion group based on assigned topics).
Your IP address and date submitted are recorded along with
your choices. Each time you submit, you can view the
answers of others, and even print them out! You are
expected to build on what you read, and do more thinking
and research and submit responses in your own words. In
other words, learn from what you read, and improve on it,
and make it yours. Finally, at the end of the lesson,
-- when you know that you understand it -- say "Mr. A. --
I got this lesson, thank you -- and type your name.
We will start now: it is meant to be an extension, an
enhancement, a digital alternative to class instruction,
a forum-group, an online seminar, and opportunity to
improve on the High Performance Classroom concept.
Please add value, and earn extra points for improving
Say "Multi-threading"! While you are reading this quiz,
keep another window open for "Java Help" from Sun, while
you are checking your answers against an answer-database.
"Prof. A, are you trying to get us to work "at-one" with
the computer? Reading, thinking, writing, researching,
and developing ourselves through some open windows of
Knowledge?" (you ask).
"Yes. 15 points for the question. Exactly." "Could not
have put it better myself!"
Become "at-one" with this marvelous technology and optimize
your skills! "Power user." Use the web as we once used
books, now strengthened with quick links to other points
of view, and ability to test ideas, compile and run, thoughts
into programs and applets! Go for it! Use the technology
to its limit. Push the edge. Show me what you can do!
And "add value" to this 'electronic learning community'
concept by developing "high quality answers" so that others
may springboard ahead.
At the end of the lesson - when you know that you understand
it - say "Mr. A., I got 'it' Thank You!" - and type your name, again.
