Understanding Information and Technology Today (FutureLearn)
Non-technological ‘big picture’ of technology and information systems to help you understand what technology can do for you today. When we talk about technology and IS (information systems) we tend to focus on computers. Instead, in this course we examine the ‘big picture’ of technology, in order to gain a better understanding of what computers can do for us and when we should switch off our computers, smartphones, tablets and wearables.
