Welcome to my Colorado Technical University doctoral students. I hope you find some interesting viewpoints here on this blog and some source materials that will spark your interest. EM 820 examines the intersection of people, business processes, culture and Web 2.0 technology as they are applied within social networks and Web media. It uses an interdisciplinary approach to integrate the fields of Web science, social psychology, business and management as well as collaborative online software practices into business solutions. Students apply problem-based learning strategies to explore the risks and benefits of social media for business use.
