LIS4708 - Perspectives in IT

Welcome to the course! Note that the asyncrhonous part of the course is administered primarily at jrm4.com and secondarily through Canvas.

Most of the course, and anything suitable for public viewing will be at jrm4.com.

Canvas will be used for announcements and assignments, and that is all. Contacting me or the TA should only be done through regular email, at jmarks@fsu.edu (I have piloted Canvas Conversations and determined that it is not worth the trouble. Regular email is both required and more beneficial overall, so we will keep it simple and only use that.)

For the live course sessions, we will be using the newer Collaborate Ultra. Any browser with Javascript should be fine; the link is forthcoming.

You don't need to do anything for the first day besides show up, the syllabus is below and the schedule will be discussed in class on the first day. See you then!
