ICT in Organizations

Instructor:  Steven Schlough

 

Course Description:

Evaluation of information and communication technology. Impacts of information and communication technologies on organizations and society.

 

Reflection:

In this class we learned about information technologies in companies and organizations. We did a lot of online discussion base on readings. The online discussions were a perfect use of technology for the class. We discuss topics such as implementation strategies, technologies and that could help or hinder a company.

 

Besides the discussions, we were required to do an online presentation on a technology that could be use as a learning teaching/training tool within an organization. I chose to focus on the video game World of Warcraft. I wanted to learn if this 11 million user video had any sort of training/learning values that could be useful for an organization. To my surprise there were quite a few training/learning values such as improvement of reading and writing skills, gives the user the opportunity to experience different roles, foster teamwork, teaches basic economy, and develops leadership skills.
