 We live in a new world of connections. Texting, Facebook, MySpace, computers, cell phones,and other developments in technology have changed the way people learn and think. Theresearch shows that students who are able to create networks tend to more successful. More andmore Fortune 500 companies are using social media in one form or another to conduct business. This course will show you how to not only use technology effectively but to createnetworks that you will use throughout your academic and professional career. This course hasno papers or tests. This course is portfolio assessed. If you follow the steps and participate, you will pass this course. But participation is the key to the whole course; it is the reason we createdthe course. Although you will find that this class is remarkably flexible, it is not a self-pacedcourse; you cannot start a project like this in the middle. Some may find all of the technology daunting, but we take all of the pieces of technology individually and fit them together likepieces in a puzzle, one at a time. This is much like the modern workplace. In your professionallife, you will be faced with having to adapt to different computers, software, and new communications tools on an on-going basis. Your ability to adapt and help others will make allthe difference. Change is occurring at a rapidly increasing pace and there are no signs that it isgoing to slow down anytime soon. By the end of this course, you will have a portfolio of tools andskills for managing your work and creating a deeper connection with your school and classmatesthat you will take with you long after you graduate.

 various types as directed by the instructor. You should carefully review each weeks’ schedule and budget your time tocomplete the assignment. Plan your private activities with these requirements in mind.3.
