Our Questions: How will an XML schema help us convert two different data types, such as between us and our suppliers? Does XML validate the proper data type or correctness of the data? How can a schema be changed to meet changes in demands as our business grows? What are the cost associated with implementing an xml based system? Will it require us to hire an IT professional?
Class thoughts: Reading List “The reading list was nicely done and the variety was nice. The videos gave a different perspective to people who may be more visual than standard.“ “Wow! This is a tough topic and I think this group did the best they could with it. I like the article “The Basics of XML” the best as it was the easiest to read.” Reading 6 didn't work. Very repetitive, kind of difficult to read.
Our Thoughts: Reading List The introduction was to technical and long. One article explaining the differences between HTML, XHTML, and XML would have been better. More readings on the uses of XML schemas as opposed to the explanation of what XML is. Videos were explanatory and provided a break from highly technical readings.
Class Reaction to Presentation Defined XML and Schema so that audience is up to speed. Did really well trying to keep everyone's attention and making sure you get your points across. The activity was a little difficult. Lots of energy! The activity/handout was good. I think with a complicated subject like XML it is necessary to have the class actually participate.
Class Suggestion on Presentation They went to long and the chalkboard demonstration was confusing, it should have been rehearsed before the presentation. Overall not bad, I would have liked to see less reading off the slides, and could have been smoother, but I realize it was quite a hard topic to explain.
Our Thoughts on Presentation High Energy Addressed each of our questions The class activity involved the class with a difficult topic. Good use of time explaining a topic that even Dr. Sullivan said was challenging. Became lost in slides Chalkboard demonstration was hard to follow
Our Decision An XML schema will help us to standardize data and is worth implementing. We will look into purchasing Stylus Studio® to help us make a standardized schema. We do not wish to hire an IT professional Chris will be going to summer school in England
