Project/Seminar Groups: Groups of 5-6 students each will be assigned for project and seminar.

Seminar: Each group will choose at least three topics on the emerging trends in IT within the first week of class in their order of preference. One of the chosen topics will be approved by the faculty or the faculty will suggest a chosen topic for the group. At the end of each class one group will be asked to present their chosen topic on one emerging trend in IT (as approved/assigned by the faculty) topic for 5 minutes. The presentation should include a short description of the topic, what is the value-addition and industry impact with few examples of its applications, challenges and concerns. Term Project: The objective of the term project is to learn how various concepts learned in the course are applied across business organizations in India. Different groups may look at different aspects covered under modules 1-4 in real Information Systems used in different organizations in India (e.g., Group 1 would be investigating the social impact aspects of IS in company X while Group 2 would be investigating the strategic impact aspect of IS in X). The findings will be shared across the other groups by way of presentation. Primary or secondary sources could be used for information gathering. Where ever, official letters are required for information gathering, TA would facilitate that. The topics will be suggested by the faculty and will be announced in Moodle. An interim report of 3-4 pages showing the progress should be submitted by 15 Feb 2013 and the Final report (10-12 pages) should be submitted by 1 March 2013. The presentations are scheduled during the last two sessions where each group will get around 10 minutes for presentation.
