Introduction to Databases
This course was an introduction to databases through the medium of Microsoft Office Access. Most of the course consisted of following step-by step walkthroughs in the textbook to apply things to, and generate items from, a large pre-existing database.
The signature deliverable in the course was an independent implementation of the things we'd learned, applied to a business or concept of our own choosing. I've been a Star Trek fan in the past, so I came up with a rudimentary "fleet management" application for a Starfleet Command bureaucrat.
You can download and play with the database youself and modify it however you like. The download is a ZIP archive with the database, copies of the resources that were embedded in it, and information about where to locate the resources. The database password is password.
