In the last few years, it's become apparent that it belongs in many more environments--and in this short course, you'll learn more about different environments where TIC is important.
You'll also learn a little about why TIC is important in these environments, and think a little about how it can be useful to people in education, industry, and academia as well as in health care and faith communities.
