Information technology changes at a rapid pace with new innovations appearing continuously. Information technology leaders strive to implement appropriate technology to solve problems and leverage technology in innovative ways. It can be a challenge to determine how to consume and integrate information technology in an existing operational environment.
Consider opportunities to use IT to solve a real-world problem. Ideas for real-world problems could be:
- Using information technology to assist in treating and stopping the Ebola outbreak
- Designing a network infrastructure that could bring a poorer part of the world into the twenty-first century
- Creating a website, mobile application, and/or database that supports connecting those in need of addiction treatment to centers and practitioners who are immediately available
After brainstorming some ideas, decide on a potential capstone project. Describe your idea. Explain how you will scale back the scope of your idea into a project that can be completed within the time constraints of this course.
Then review the project ideas posted by your classmates, and provide your feedback on their project ideas.
Refer to the Capstone Discussion Rubric for directions on completing these discussions.
