1. Choose two of the above options with which you’ve had little to no experience. First research each of your selected tools, then write a descriptive paragraph outlining their purpose and capabilities. Describe how these applications would be used in the modern work place. Do they interface with any other applications? If so, how?

Please note: Descriptions of applications should be in your own words. Imagine you are speaking at a board meeting – how would you describe these programs in a comprehensible way to an audience with varying levels of IT knowledge? If you do need to quote language from another source, be sure to cite it appropriately. And while it is tempting to pick old familiar tools like Skype or Outlook, it will be more beneficial to your future professional life if you challenge yourself to explore unknown territory.

2. Next, for both of your chosen applications, discuss their limitations. How effective are they? Have there been documented issues with their installation and deployment? Are there better/more efficient/more robust options available? If so, what are they and why?

Communication Standards for Our Class

Be supportive, considerate and constructive when crafting your posts and replying to your peers. Please avoid jargon, slang or inappropriate language. If you disagree with a classmate please respond in a respectful and tactful manner. Any posts deemed inappropriate by the professor will be removed from the discussion board. Above all, take advantage of the medium and proofread your posts. In verbal communication we often express sentiments in the moment only to regret them later. With discussion boards you gain the opportunity to review and edit your posts before they enter the world, allowing you to present the best version of yourself and your thoughts.
