The day after Thanksgiving, also known as “Black Friday”, is the first of the holidays’ shopping big waves. It is the time of the year where retailers and online stores push their products to next levels. “Cyber Monday” was originally created to make additional offers to employees returning to work. Today, with more home computers, tablets, and smartphones, consumers do not have to wait until Monday to start getting the cyber deals.

Build a Better You! Extreme Time Management Workshop | Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche

2012-04-Time-IMG_1512sm-e1334522420353

Here’s your chance to gain some leadership skills and build your resume while having a great time. Join Kent Campus Student Life for the ‘Build a Better You!’ program Thursdays, 2pm-3pm, January 17-March 21, 2013 in E-104 (refreshments will be provided). Topics range from getting to know yourself better to time management to values and ethics to putting your best face forward on social media and more. Attend at least six of the nine scheduled topics to earn your official ‘Build a Better You!’ certificate and recognition at the annual Student Awards Program in April.

January 31’s program is Extreme Time Management with Dr. Jose Lepervanche. 

Time is one thing in the world that we cannot change. Information, communications, family, friends, and work overload our time. We fill our day with activities that overwhelm our capacity to handle them. We need extreme time management methods to cope with stress, unproductivity, and procrastination.

Time survivors keep them busy without losing sanity. Busy people always have time to do more. Lazy people always complain about the things they cannot do. Managers select busy people when assembling successful teams.

Personal Leadership System (c) developed by Dr. Lepervanche is based on beliefs, values, priorities, lifelong project management, effective delegation, and technology usage to simplify life and work.

While the majority of the ‘Build a Better You!’ programs are open to all, some programs have space limitations and will be first come, first served.

Widgets and Gadgets to Enhance Online Courses in Blackboard and Canvas

Dr. Jose Lepervanche, Professor of Management, Information Systems, & E-Commerce, Florida State College at Jacksonville Emerging technologies have allowed online learning to add interactive tools to courses. New web, media and mobile applications, or widgets, and new devices, or gadgets, bring innovative resources to the hands of students and faculty. These tools have been extensively used in Blackboard and now have been extended to Canvas. Dr. Lepervanche’s Web Media Lab (www.webmedialab.org) has been also testing these widgets and gadgets applying both Technology Acceptance and Affordability Models to explore real usability beyond courses into real life. Wireless, tablets, and mobile technologies allow users to be in a virtual office all the time. You are your office.
