concepts of an information system and how to execute it to their advantage. As stated by O’Brien and Marakas, (2011) “information system is a system that accepts data resources as input and processes them into information products as output… skydive Chicago’s information system depends on the resources of people (students, jumpmasters), hardware (Video cameras, VCR, and VHS tapes), software (record, play and copy videos), data (Video. And archived video tapes), and networks (VCR, camera cables) to perform input (Video tapes of student jumps), processing (View and copy the videos), output (Copy tapes for student and update video library), storage (VHS tapes, and video library) control activities (Management policy and training room library access) that transform data resources (Videos), into information products. (O’Brien and Marakas, 2011) So, how can information systems benefit the students? Skydiving students can benefit from the information systems at Skydive Chicago starting with its unique online processing, via online website. Students have access to information about the different skydiving lessons and packages they offer events, USPA National Championships calendar schedule, and a discussion forum to participate in and ask questions about the training or pervious jump sessions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
