Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because as a student you will learn about the critical role information plays in business and government. As well as have appreciation for the use of computer based information systems to modern business . Furthermore students will gain skills that are necessary to participate effectively in the development of integrated user machine systems for providing information to support operations, management , analysis, and decision- making functions in business organizations.
Some of the highlights of this course was understanding the basics of information technology skills, analysis, problem solving and related organizational skills to effectively use to interpret lectures, discussions , cases and articles used to discuss major areas for different topic. The four major areas/issues discussed in the course I learned about was fundamental concepts and the operational decision-making and how they play role with strategic roles of information systems. Also I learned about the different types of technological foundation of information systems ( which consisted of hardware, software, storage and telecommunication's). The present use of development information system solutions to business problems and the application of information systems toward supporting end-user activities, business operations,, managerial decision making and strategic advantage

Advice for students:
Some advice I would give students considering this course is buy/rent the textbook. Especially if you are considering taking the course online. Take time out your day to read/ go back over the chapters occasionally . Reading is 98% of the class. A lot of the material comes from the book and prep questions are located on the book as well. Follow instructions when it comes to the cases and articles. The slide presentations are helpful as well when reading the book,, but I would pay attention to the concepts especially outlined in bold
