Case Studies in Programming and System Courses
The year 2001, 2002, and 2003 experienced significant downsizing of the Information Technology (IT) industry. In 2004, outsourcing or off-shoring gave another blow to the IT job market. The future enrollment of computer science, computer information system, management information system majors might decrease. Most of us, the faculty who presented papers at the ISECON conferences, will have fewer students to teach if this trend persists. Our jobs may be on the line. How do we ensure the content we teach, will continue to be relevant to the need of the industry? This paper tries to provide answers by examining the use of case studies in Programming and System courses.
Keywords: COBOL, C++, Java, Visual Basic, system analysis and design
