It’s been real #IS6621

I honestly can’t believe this is the final blog post I’ll write for this class. I feel like it was yesterday when professor Kane and the TAs were warning us about the amount of work we would have to do for this class and how it wasn’t going to be easy. “This class is not […]

Taking an Online Class at BC

This semester, BC offered Analytics and Business Intelligence as an online course. There are not many courses offered like this at BC because they are still experimenting to see how successful the online format is.

Learning how to blog 101

The closest I’ve come to blogging was in middle school when there were these websites called FotoLog and MetroFlog where you could post one picture a day and write a paragraph about it. Then, people could leave comments for each picture. Everyone was pretty hyped about it for a few months but it died out […]
