Welcome to MIS2101: Information Systems in Organizations. We will not be using Canvas for this class. Instead we’ll be using this site, hosted on the MIS community. 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 The traditional textbook has been replaced by a collection of readings and videos that are available over the internet. You will also need to print out the course activity packet, which we will use throughout the course. It also includes valuable exam review material. (FAQ: is there an exam review document available to students? A: right here in the course activity packet).
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 on this site so it is important that you check this site regularly for updates. Make it part of your daily workflow to check the site, do the readings, and stay ahead of schedule.
