Requirements for All Papers
Cover page:On every cover page, include your name; class; module & assignment; professor’s name; and the date. Double space all papers.
Papers that do not contain in-text citationsanda reference list will have points deducted from the grade.That means you have to cite the source of the information within the body of the paper like this (Author’s last name, Year) and include a full reference list at the end of the paper (not just a list of links).
To make sure you understand how to properly cite sources, review these sites:
If you have questions after reading this, your professor or I will be glad to talk with you. We are both in the ClassList for emailing.
Use your own words (not quotes).It is very important to demonstrate that you have synthesized the ideas presented in your papers. Using quotes shows that you can find information, but doesn’t show what you learned and understand. Direct quotes are rarely necessary and must be cited properly. Refer to
for APA style citation format. It is critical that your work is your own work. Be sure that your writing is in your own words.
Read the Expectations listed under each assignmentto help you earn maximum credit.
In the new TLC system all assignments follow a new scoring systems explained in our syllabus. Each case assignment is worth 50 points, each SLP is worth 30 points and your participation in the Discussions of every module is worth 20 points.
Each assignment is graded using a rubric that distributes the points based on several criteria. For example, case assignments take into consideration: Key elements of the assignments (50%), critical thinking (20%), and scholarly writing, quality of references, organization, and citing sources (30%). All assignments should follow the page length required without counting the cover page and references and including about 300 words per page.

Every company has, to a greater or lesser extent, an information subsystem—that is, a means by which it gathers data, interprets it, and makes it available to employees through a distribution system. Whether we are talking about marketing information, cost projections, accounting results, or internal quality reports, every company depends on information to inform knowledge to support its planning, decision-making, and control.
So how does knowledge fit into the picture? The emergence of the field called knowledge management has highlighted some key propositions in the last 10 years or so. All organizations are storehouses of knowledge that operate in information-rich environments made up of people and things both inside and outside the organization itself. Organizations organize, interpret, and evaluate this information to solve organizational problems.
Networked information technology enables the processing and utilizing information to advance knowledge. People’s brains are the key knowledge resource of any organization. Codified knowledge stored in books, audio, videotapes, and computer systems can be an important knowledge resource as well.
There are organizational processes and strategies for IT management and management in general. Therefore, these IT processes and strategies, in particular, can significantly enhance the ability of organizations to use their knowledge resources for problem solving.
Several of these themes will come up again in later modules in this course. But by way of introduction to the subject, examine some views of how information sharing works. Listen to each of the lectures below and then take the quiz (which does not count in the grading). This will be followed by a case where you see the power of information sharing enabled by networked computer systems.
These lectures and quiz will help you with the case:
Module 1, Lecture 1: Managing the Value of Data and Information Technology: PLEASE SEE ATTACHED VIDEO LINKS IF YOU DON’T SEE THEM PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
What does one do to obtain funding for a new invention, movie, or company? Do you go to the bank? Do you go to venture capitalists? Do you go to angel investors? Crowd Funding is an alternative to these traditional sources of funding. Kickstarter.com is one of the largest of these crowdfunding websites. Here a person posts about the project with a description, maybe a video, and the funding needed. Backers then pledge money to the project. If the funding goal is not reached, then the project is stopped with return of any pending obligations of support.
Kickstarter started in 2009, and since that time has been focused on helping creative types find funding sources. Since 2009 it has received almost 2 billion dollars in pledges from 10 billion backers for over 260,000 projects such as films, music, stage shows, comics, journalism, video games, technology, and food-related projects. So this is a great opportunity for aspiring new artists, inventors, etc., to obtain funding. This is happening on Kickstarter with 1000’s of dollars pledged each day, where the creator of the projects keeps 100 percent ownership of the project in which investors decide they want to invest.
and look at the various project categories. Select a category and a project of interest to you. Provide a description for one of your selected projects, including the offerings and number of backers. Discuss the pledges,the amounts of the pledges, and the numbers of people for different pledge amounts. What does the pledge amount tell you about the motivation of the customers?
Explain why crowdfunding may be advantageous to new entrepreneurs. How does Kickstarter seek to build a community for the entrepreneurs?
What information must an entrepreneur provide to get funding? How does Kickstarter manage the collection and transfer of pledges? Would you use this site yourself or recommend it to others?
You are to produce an analysis of Kickstarter. In doing this analysis you will answer the questions asked. Use a table to show the Kickstarter offerings and the number of backers. Then discuss these pledges and why this crowdfunding is of advantage to entrepreneurs. Using several products compare the type of information the entrepreneur needs to get funding and discuss if you would invest or recommend to others. In 3 or 4 pages, provide your discussion and analysis—we encourage the use of spreadsheets and tables to justify your response.
Enter the information in the spreadsheet below.
Adjust the size of the columns as needed.
Calculate the final average in G – average the 3 test grades and multiply them by .90 (90%) add in the 10% of the participation grade.=c5*.3+d5*.3+e5*.3+f5*.1
Now calculate the average for columns C, D, and E.
Your assignments will be graded following these expectations:
· The assignment file must be developed in Excel and saved as .xls file.
· Precision:The questions asked are answered.
· Clarity:Your answers are clear and show your good understanding of the topic.
