APUS INNOVATION IN TECHNOLOGY EFFORTS:  IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION FOR OUR STUDENTS:

As part of the APUS efforts for innovation in technology, your instructor has created news feed links that are specific to the subject of business. Both of the yellow titles below are links to separate news articles about business. Each week you are required to find one news article (From either link below) that relates to your personal interests and discuss how that article relates to our weekly material. Tell your instructor what the article was about and how the article relates to our learning content this week. Be creative with your thoughts on how you link the article to our course material). You should post the evaluation of the article at the end of your response to the discussion questions each week (Include this section as part of your 250-word response). The news feeds are updated throughout the day/week to provide you with a real-time learning environment. This technology integration will provide you, as a learner, the choice to discuss news events that fit your personal background and interests. It will also help you stay educated on current events that might relate to your related profession or personal interests. Enjoy.
