Resources for the IT Student: From Cloud Computing to Information Systems
Knowing what you’re getting into when choosing a degree program is important. Even more important is knowing who your professors will be and where their head and experience are at. Learning from someone with research and industry knowledge is important, but how can you find that information before you start the class? A quick Google search of your instructors name can pull up a whole mess of links and content suggestions. What you need is a starting point, or a list of content resources for your program.
At American Public University we have numerous instructors that have contributed to blog posts and podcasts on topics in their area of expertise. For the online learner looking at IT topics for reading material on discussion posts, or to get a sense of their thoughts on a current event there are several options to choose from. See the list below for some great starter articles.
