Identify Resources and Capture Information
The purpose of this exercise is to start to develop an electronic information resource for the consideration of Systems in Organizations. There is a lot of information available and much of it is available electronically. Four sources with which you can begin are:
There are hundreds more and we will run into them as we look at other topics this semester. If you have another one that you prefer, use it and share it. For now, however, look at these four, at least, and find on them an article that discusses an information technology or approach. Capture that article and turn it in next week via email.
When you capture the information, do it so that a web browser can be used to replay the formatting and graphics that are available. If you are unclear on how to do this, some discussion in class will be available to help you in this effort.
The most important part of the exercise, however, in not the article but the “bookmarking” of information resources. As you find these resources, book mark them so that you will be able to return to them for other information as we look at other aspects of information technology.
Find and Mark Glossaries
In this little effort we will continue our development of an electronic resource for information by bookmarking glossaries. There are glossaries on the following four sites. Find each glossary and try to characterize each by the kind of information it contains.
“Everything you need to know is right here.”
Nicely organized for the geek in all of us…
Starts with a useful introduction to attribution.
The main part of this activity will be your own increasing list of places you can go and find information about changing technology and also the resources for understanding that technology. What you are to do is find five glossaries; characterize them, list one interesting term from each and turn in this list by e-mailing it to me. (Since you have four sample sources above, this should not be an awful task.)
