CIS 757 QUIZ 01 PROF. AUCIELLO
This lesson-quiz represents some 'break-through' thinking:
... the premise that the student is an active 'participant'
in the learning process ... highly interactive, participative
environment that can function synchronously (real-time) or
asynchronously (anywhere, anytime outside of class).'
You must respond to each question, and compare and discuss
your answers with others .. You will be graded on your
last and best quiz.
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.
