Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 use agile project management techniques to manage a substantial information technology project relevant to a student's course major
2 apply an agile methodology to the design, development and testing of a computer system or computer application
3 develop and document user manuals and user training programs
4 integrate multiple information technologies to achieve a working information system
5 effectively communicate with all stakeholders during all stages of system development using verbal, writing, collaboration software and formal presentations
