Each student will choose 2 health informatics terms this semester. One existing terms from the wiki and one new term must be completed. Post the information to the following wiki: http://healthinformatics.wikispaces.com/ (Links to an external site.).
Go to wikispaces.com and review the existing terms. Retrieve them if a term that you’d like to review is in the library. You can choose one from the existing terms. But you need to have two new terms for this assignment.
Once a student decides his/her three terms, post them in Google Drive LIS 4785 Wiki Term Selection (Links to an external site.) by September 24th, 11:59 pm. Students will be able to access the list of terms that their classmates choose. Every student needs to review a different term.
