NEW - WileyPLUS Learning Space (with ORION adaptive technology) brings new social functionality in addition to normal classroom management.
Updated author videos for each section of the text. These video lectures (WPLS only) in particular will work well with the flipping the classroom trend. WileyPLUS Learning Space functionality and assets further support flipping the classroom experience.
Co-author, Brad Prince, flips his own classroom and will be creating a brief instructor guide on using these new materials in this environment.
IT s About Business: IT s About Business cases, several within every chapter, feature vivid examples from large corporations, small businesses, government, and not-for-profit organizations to show the connection between IT and business.
Technology Guides: These guides offer additional material on technology topics not included in the main text and current hot topics in IT.
Concise and Engaging: The chapters in this text provide what students need to know without overwhelming them with details.
WileyPLUS Learning Space: WileyPLUS Learning Space provides instructors and students a dynamic learning environment in which to interact at the point of learning. Both students and instructors can utilize the system or bring in outside resources to aid in learning. Offering instructors a new methodology for engaging and assessing their students and/or flipping the classroom, this new system also allows students to take responsibility for their own learning.
