Joyce Valenza's Evaluating Databases wiki page. Joyce's Voicethread on "Why I Love Databases" & student produced video "Databases are Different" lower on that same page.

Introduce the database briefly, give the class 10-15 minutes to explore and then call them back for a "Show us what you learned" session.
Include User Name and Log In information with assignments.
