Why am I taking IST600, Blogging for Information Professionals? My name is Thomas Garrison, and I am a graduate student at Syracuse University, pursuing a degree in Information Management. Today, information can take many forms. As new technologies enter the workplace, it allows better communication, as well as an abundance of information to share. Blogging is another way to promote my online presence, but I’m also interested in the many ways to leverage and take advantage of the things that blogging offers.
Many companies are using internal applications like Sharepoint and Yammer as a way to foster the sharing of information within their organization, and this blogging course will help me understand the ways to use online applications to accomplish this.
