This graphic shows the steps to convert data into Business Intelligence. We go from big data warehouses to do data mining and extract the pieces that we will filter, analyze and store as records in databases.
We then organize, sort, and clean records to produce information. We start the process of selecting useful information that we can convert into intelligence. Similar to military intelligence, we study this meaningful information to produce business intelligence for our organization. This business intelligence allows leaders and managers to make decisions keeping the competitive advantage. Business intelligence is also useful to expand to new markets, explore new countries, and try new systems. Two important considerations are: Control Information Overload and Validate Sources. These will help to have better Data at the Base. It is called “database” for a reason. We are using this graphic and video in our courses. #DrLepervancheCampus
Innovative technologies have been used in global organizations to enhance performance. Technology Acceptance Model is used to explore current trends such as new media, web 2.0 tools, and other social media networks. (2010 International College Teaching and Learning Conference). Used in Technology Management courses.
The Teleducator Network is our Navigational Chart to access our current educational, business, and community resources. The idea came while looking for solutions to reduce Information Overload in our online courses.
The Teleducator Network is an information and knowledge integrator where topics are organized by type of resources. Channels is about You Tube videos. Community has links to several organizations where I volunteer. Courses contain links to all courses including website companions, reading or slides. Labs are past and current project to enhance management, leadership, and systems courses and to test emerging technologies and methods. Students are involved on these labs using discussions, assignments, or team projects. Newsletters include paper.li and Scoop. Social media is an area to link to several Facebook pages, Linkedin, and Twitter. Websites & Blogs include personal and professional websites, blogs, and collaboration in other websites. The Teleducator Network is always “under construction” as new resources are constantly added.
Professors and students are invited to use and share resources, not only during a specific course, but as part of a continuous lifelong learning experience.
Browse through our online resources using the links on the left, or by using the drop-down menu at the top of this site. You can also search for specific things as well.
Cutting-edge technologies have been used in the BAS in Supervision and Management program to enhance online discussions and classroom interaction based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). On the other hand, some of these technologies have also created information and communication overload in online courses. Students have returned to basic discussions where content quality has more value than the delivery method or the technology involved. The TAM model is being used to filter all new technologies implemented in management online courses, to reduce unnecessary methods that could overwhelm learners and distract them from the course content.
