Welcome to MIS 2101

Welcome to MIS2101, Information Systems in Organizations. We will not be using Blackboard or 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 content management system/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 The traditional textbook has been replaced by a collection of readings and videos that are freely available over the Internet.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.
