A great question was asked about quantum computing today, and this just appeared in my inbox earlier this morning. While this will not be on the exam (!!!) I am sharing it in case you want to understand a bit more about bits and qubits.
A good read on knowledge management, this article is more digestible than the one on the schedule. It also reinforces the need for employee engagement in knowledge management initiatives.

Hello everyone, I hope your school year is off to a great start. My name is Zois Bouikidis and I will be your ITA this semester for our MIS 2101 class. As someone who has taken the course already, I am here as a resource for you all to leverage so that you can succeed in the class. I am available to assist with questions you may have about your assignments this semester. I am a senior MIS major, so if you ever have any questions about the MIS program, the business school, or Temple University, I’ll do my best to use my experience to help answer those questions as well.
You can get in contact with me by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by coming in during office hours. If you email me, please make sure to include your full name, course number, and section number somewhere in the email. The course number for your class is 2101 and the section is 001.
I plan on holding office hours every Monday from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM in Alter 602. Stop in for help with assignments or for advice on how to do well in this course! I’m going to include this information in my section of the ‘about’ page as well.
Good luck this year!
Hello and welcome to MIS 2101!
Welcome to MIS2101, Information Systems in Organizations. We will not be using Canvas for this class. Instead we’ll be using this site which is hosted by Community.MIS.Temple.Edu. This site is built on WordPress, a world class open-source blogging tool. As part of completing the assignments in MIS2101 you will gain some experience with WordPress and other technologies.
Unlike most intro courses, this course has no required textbook. The traditional textbook has been replaced by a collection of readings and videos that are freely available over the Internet. Another way you will find this class very different than most classes you will take at any university is that this class is “activity based”. With this type of class there is far less traditional lecture. We will used the time that is freed up from lectures to complete in-class activities that help students develop a deeper and more genuine understanding of the material that is discussed during our class discussions.
On this site you will find all of the required course materials including the syllabus, links to the assigned readings, links to assigned videos, assignments and access to your grades for the course. In addition announcements will be made in class and/or on this site so it is important that you check this site regularly for announcements.
