I hate the content of the class and I think that it is a useless class that could be useful if Temple changed the focus of it to make it more applicable. That being said, I love the professor and he made the class enjoyable for me. Definitely take O'Donnell because, from what I've heard, the other professors are no good

You are doing yourself a MAJOR disservice by not taking him. HE IS THE BEST PROFESSOR he is so nice, cares about his students, and is funny. Class is not mandatory as all his slideshows are online and the 3 projects we did in this class were 3 of the easiest projects I've ever done. TAKE HIM!

Carey is the man. Not much work, but the two exams are not easy. Projects and online hw is however easy, just study for the exams and Carey will take care of you.

SUCH A BOSS!! Worth it just to hear his crazy speech at the end how business student's purpose in the world is to "create and share prosperity". Funny, witty, and really loves his job. Content is inherently confusing at times but he makes it doable. Highly recommened

By far the BEST teacher I have every had. EASY CLASS! Very interesting and very engaging! I learned so much, I decided to declare a minor in MIS because of him! He's inspiring, motivational, caring, and an all around great guy. He really wants his students to do well and succeed! Not many professors get standing ovation at the end of the semester!

By far, the BEST professor I have every had. Not only did he teach us a lot of relevant information but he also presented it in an interesting and engaging way. He is inspiring, motivational, caring, and an all around great guy. Everything was EASY AS CAKE. He even got a standing ovation on the last day of class. LOVE HIM and his class!

Really good professor that knows his subject! he makes you understand the importance of IT! Totally recommend!Easy A class!!!However, the majority of people never show up in class (because attendance is not mandatory and power point are provided) but they always fail the first midterm that is not so easy!!

Great class. Granted I have absolutley no interest in information systems, O'Donnell made the information interesting and applicable to real life. Exams are easier than you think and the projects are very simple. He's not hard to look at either!

Professor O'Donnell knows what he is talking about. He makes class fun, clearly states what the exams will entail, and gives you practical advice on how to use the knowledge in class in real life situations. Definitely take him. Very interesting class.

put good effort on your projects because that's your easy 50% of your grade. Exams are kinda ok, not easy nor hard. spent 2 -3 days studying slides, then you should be fine. otherwise, you;ll prob wont do well.

O'Donnell has a lot to share from his professional experiences, and isn't afraid to deviate from the text. He throws in a lot of personal anecdotes and generally makes the class fun and engaging.

Great Professor, really engaging. Too uptight about grade inflation so you'll do well but if you deserve an A you'll get an A - just because he doesn't want to give out a lot of A's. Great professor,easy class take him!
