Specifics

The course is based on the Saylor.org online course Management Information Systems, developed by Markeyshi O'Patrick, Jenelle Davis, and Rose Wise. The material for this course derives from a range of free online content, and includes historical overviews, academic analysis, and primary sources. It also provides self-assessments for each unit.

Students are required to keep a personal log book (in BlackBoard) in which they keep track of the material they have read, the self-assessments they have done and any other requirements. Although the students have some flexibility in planning their work, there will be three fixed checkpoints (relative to the starting date) on which the self-reports will be examined and graded by the instructor. The average of these grades together with the grade for a final exam determines the end grade (20% reports/80% final exam). 

Please note: This course is for Liberal Arts and Sciences students only!

Content
Liberal Arts and Sciences gives her students the opportunity to follow state-of-the-art, high quality Open Educational Resources developed and offered by other academic institutions around the world. They have been added in order to expand the LAS-TiU curriculum. For every LAS-TiU Major program, one online course has been carefully selected to broaden and deepen the existing course offer. LAS-TiU students are enabled to take the online courses as much as possible in their own time and at their own pace, and to acquire credits by taking tests designed and tailor-made by LAS-TiU. The course materials and instructions will be offered through a Blackboard course environment, the course will be guided by a LAS lecturer.

Today, the term 'information system' is mostly associated with databases, the Internet, and server rooms. However, 'information management' has been around since before the invention of these tools. It is as old as commerce itself, as traders, bankers, and merchants have always had reason to track sales and inventory. Creditors must be aware of how much capital has been lent to borrowers and how much money has been deposited at banks. Long before humans harnessed electricity, there was a need for information systems. But currently almost all management of information systems is done electronically.

Management Information Systems (MIS) is a formal discipline within business education that bridges the gap between computer science and the well-known business disciplines of finance, marketing, and management. 

In its most general terms, information systems encompass any interactions between organized data and people. MIS can be the means by which information is transmitted (such as the Internet), the software that displays the information (such as Microsoft Excel), or the systems that manage the data (such as an ERP system). In this course, you will learn about the various components of information systems and how to leverage them in business.
