Techies in ITEC1001-17

Collaboration Assignment


  • Each student needs to submit 5 exam questions on the following page
  • The answers should be on a different page.
  • The question page should have a link to the answer page
  • The answer page should have a link back to the Study Guide
  • You can add questions for any of the three topics mentioned
  • If someone has already submitted a question do not resubmit the same question. make sure to go through the list before you add a question
  • Mention your name along with the question
  • Include your name in the address of the answer page to ensure that two students don't create the same page
    • This how Tony's answer page address looks like Answer_to_Chapter_7_Question_1_Tony
  • When making changes to a page that has stuff written on it, do not edit other students' stuff, but rather add new entries
    • Example, don't just delete what is on the page and type your question there. Just hit enter and type your question on the new line creating a new bullet item.

Thank you Tony and Marijana for creating a sample.

Other Details
