Abstract: As part of the introductory level management information systems (MIS) course, faculty are asked to introduce the students to MIS concepts as well as to help them develop technology-related skills benefitting them in their course work and beyond. However, with a vast array of MIS topics that could be covered and class time at a premium, it is difficult to determine which MIS topics to address and which ones to forego. Ensuring that the appropriate topics are addressed and adequately covered is tremendously important to the learning process as well as abiding by the learning standards of accrediting institutions. In this study, the author describes a project and survey that was administered to undergraduate junior and graduate MBA students in the core MIS classes in the College of Business undergraduate and graduate level curriculum. The purpose of the study was threefold: to introduce the students to collaborative technologies, determine whether or not students were already familiar with the technology assigned, and evaluate the perceived value of the projects in relation to learning objectives and the projects’ use of class time.
