Integrating Issues: The Environment
The purpose of the Session Long Project in Trident University classes
is to give you the opportunity to explore the applicability of the
Module to your own life, work, and place in space and time, and to
experiment with the Module to see how the otherwise academically
rigorous presentation of a topic may, with more or less work and/or
trauma, become “up close and personal”. This is done in a number of
different ways — sometimes cumulative papers, sometimes practical
hands-on experimentation with a tool of some sort, sometimes reflections
on a place of work or life. The common thread is personal application,
aimed at demonstrating a cumulative knowledge and understanding of the
course’s material. The main purpose of the written parts of
the assignments is to show that you’ve had some experiences doing the
project, that you’ve thought carefully about what they mean for your own
education, and that you can make some personal applications of this
meaning to your own professional and/or personal understanding.
Demonstrating this understanding is actually considerably more
important than carrying out any specific step in the project
For this course, the Project will take the form of reading and
reviewing the latest white papers, case studies, web casts and product
information from Business Week’s Technology Research Library and writing an analysis of what you find. Specific instructions for each module are found below.
It is a good idea to be sure that your computer is appropriately
protected from the bad Guys Out There. There are some security
precautions that are particularly important to observe before setting
out on any Internet excursion, including these projects. In particular,
it is essential that if you are going to download anything from the
Internet, that you have adequate virus protection and
anti-adware/spyware/malware screening on your systems. Please review our
suggestions for preparing your computer for active Internet usebefore
diving headlong into that world.
Most online demo sites, when you encounter them, will require you to
enter a name and an email address by way of registration; if this
bothers you,try using a pseudonym and a convenience free email account
from Hotmail or Gmail or Yahoo, or just try some other name. All they
want is a place to send a password, generally. It is also possible that
you will receive follow-up inquiries from sites that you have visited.
If you work in an area subject to security clearances and
regulations, or if the computer to which you have access is restricted
in critical ways in terms of what you are at liberty to download and use
(because of capacity, policy and/or security rules, or other factors)
then your ability to carry out the assignments as presented may somewhat
compromised. Never Fear! TUI is known for its flexibility and ability
to reconfigure assignments imaginatively, and we stand ready to help
you here as well! Please click here to review our policy on
assignments and national security. Alternatives are available, and
while you might miss some of the learning benefits of the assignment,
you can still get a substantial measure. Please let your
instructor know as soon as you can if you will be operating under any
sort of limitations on your computing capacity, so that you can work out
So — that’s the general SLP approach for this course. If you have
questions at any point about what to do or how to strategize your
exercises, please contact your instructor for illumination and
For Module 1:
The following reference sites provide a wide variety of white papers,
case studies, web casts or product information relating to information
technology management in practical contexts. You’ll be using these sites
in all the SLP assignments for this course, so it might be helpful for
you to begin with a general reconnaissance of all the sites to get a
feel for what they contain:
Business Week’s Technical Research Library, found athttp://whitepapers.businessweek.com/
TechRepublic’s White Papers site, found athttp://www.techrepublic.com/whitepapers
Bitpipe.com’s TechTarget Library, found athttp://www.bitpipe.com/
For this Module, please select at least two white papers, case studies, web casts or product information items dealing with the
general environment within which information technology decisions are
made and/or external and internal constraints on IT decision making
(that is, this module’s general topic). Your aim should be to find some resources or information that will help you write a better case paper for this module.
Then, in 2-3 pages, address the following questions:
What your white papers, case studies or webcasts were all about
Why you selected the ones you did
What you learned from your experiences that was relevant to your case paper
Any things that you learned from this experience that should help you do the same thing in future modules
Your grade is not dependent on the specific materials you select.
Obviously, your learning will be greater the more you are able to
accomplish; but the major factor in grading the Project will be the work
that you invest in it and the energy that you apply to learning from
the experience, whatever it might be.
