Welcome everyone to the IS353 class blog at Loyola University. Some of you have blogged in our IS251 classes previously so you know the drill. Everything that you write here can be read by anyone... not just me! The goal of this blog is to provide a collaborative forum for students (and those outside the class who share an interest in this subject) to share stories and insights regarding the world of information systems with a particular focus on data and data management.
All blogs are a work-in-progress and the
information on this website is no different.
Over the course of the next
few weeks, students will be posting items of interest to the blog. This
could be news reports or other items of interest that speak directly to
the how companies are using data or to data management issues.
have any doubts as to whether the article you want to blog about is
relevant, please speak with me ahead of time. Students are expected to
pay close attention to what their peers have posted on the blog and to
make comments on what they read. The use of this blog will hopefully
prove to be a valuable learning tool for everyone in the class. By
sharing our knowledge with one another through an open and interactive
forum, we can learn much more both individually and as a class. Please
ensure that whatever materials you post to the blog are appropriately
cited. If you find an article on the web which you would like to bring
to our attention, please post the exact URL with reference to where the
article has come from.
Thanks everyone - let the blogging commence!
