CPSC 110 Xtra Credit

self-portraitThe scores on the second test in CPSC 110 weren’t so great so I’m giving the students in the class an opportunity to get some extra test-points.

The idea is to give 0,1, or 2 points for discovering and annotating Web sites in one or two topic areas. At most 20-test points may be amassed this way.

Suggestions for topics

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Careers in Computer Science
  • Computer/Electronic games – not a list of games, but sites that discuss the creation, study, and nature of the games
  • Computer graphics – sites that provide information/discussion about the nature of computer graphics or the state of the area.
  • Computer Networks
  • Cyber Security
  • Electronic Commerce
  • Electronic Communication
  • Electronic Learning
  • Information Infrastructure
  • Intellectual property – issues related to the establishment, protection, and sharing
  • Knowledge Management
  • Privacy as related to digital/electronic activities
  • Robotics
  • Ubiquitous computing
  • Web 2.0
  • Web site design and implementation
  • Robotics

Places to find reliable Web sites

The Annotated Listing

Start with the title of the site
Then an image of a portion or the home page for the site

A paragraph or two, 100 – 200 words that describe the purpose, features, and significance/importance of the Web site.

A bibliographic reference consisting of the title of the site, the URL for the site, the name of the author or sponsoring organization, and date it was visited.

The annotated listing is to be posted at umwblogs.org
