Abstract: In order to be competitive in this increasingly complex world of information technology, business and industry, government, and entrepreneurs must be aware of the proper application of technology and must manage it effectively. Undergraduate students need more than an introductory survey course; they need in-depth application of technology to real problems. This mini-course approach is designed to motivate students with hands-on software applications and systems design concepts. The minicourse series is comprised of one-credit modules, is project-oriented, and is scheduled to accommodate general business and liberal arts students in preparation for their application of information technology in the workplace.

Keywords: Information system curriculum, CIS education, One-credit courses
