Although the syllabus follows a predetermined schedule, the seminar format provides a degree of flexibility that will allow the class to spend more time on those topics that are capturing our interest. The course content can therefore evolve as we begin to explore information architecture, project management and related issues.
To receive a passing grade in this course, you must turn in all of the assignments and the term project and do your presentation. You cannot pass this course without doing all of the assigned work, however, turning in all of the work is not a guarantee that you will pass the course. Grades of <I> (Incomplete) may be assigned in this course after discussion with the instructor, but, depending on the circumstances, there will be a penalty applied at the discretion of the instructor.
All papers and assignments must be submitted on the dates specified in this syllabus. If you cannot submit an assignment or cannot deliver a presentation on the date it is due, it is your responsibility to discuss your situation with the instructor, preferably in advance. Given that your reasons or problems are legitimate, arrangements for the completion of the outstanding work can be made; this will occur, however, at the discretion of the instructor. There will be a penalty for work turned in after the assigned date, and this will also be applied at the discretion of the instructor.

Borderline grades will be decided (up or down) on the basis of class contributions and participation throughout the semester.

a. Quotes another person's actual words, either oral or written;
b. Paraphrases another person's words, either oral or written;
c. Uses another person's idea, opinion, or theory; or
d. Borrows facts, statistics, or other illustrative material, unless the information is common knowledge.
Indiana University policies on academic dishonesty will be followed. Students found to be engaging in plagiarism, cheating, or other types of dishonesty will receive an F for the course. As a rule of thumb, when in doubt, cite the source! Even better, ask the instructor.
