*Unit 1 DB: Music from the North and South (MUS121 Rhythm, Blues & Hip Hop)
Most of the R&B artists were from the South and doo-wop artists were from the North. What elements of each region’s culture and upbringing influenced their music?
When responding to at least two of your peers, offer an example of music from R&B and an example of music from doo-wop from this era. Does your musical example agree with what your peers have said in their initial response? How are doo-wop and R&B styles similar or different? Make sure to make formal connections to our readings and materials from this unit. When sharing your musical selections with the class, please use the mashup tool for YouTube.

Consider giving examples – especially if you have examples within your own employment experience. Or – you can look for some online resources that offer you some other facets of this topic to discuss so that it isn’t just a rehash of the textbook. Don’t forget to cite any resources that you use – even the textbook!
*Unit 1 DB: Creating Value Through the Marketing Process (MKT200 Principles of Marketing)
For this conversation, you are being asked to share your opinions as a consumer. Share your personal experiences on a recent purchase with an online seller or retail store. What factors did you consider when deciding on your purchase? Was the price the most important factor? The quality? How did the promotion influence your decision?
Simulated Business Scenario:
The marketing process is intended to create value for the consumer. For example, customer satisfaction is dependent upon the product’s perceived performance relative to a buyer’s expectations. If the product performs as or better than the customer expected, they are likely satisfied and willing to purchase the product or service again. If the product does not meet customer expectations, the customers will likely not be satisfied and may write a poor review on the company and/or the product.
For this discussion, think of an example of a product or service offering that has either met or exceeded your expectations by creating value for you OR did not meet your expectations or create value for you. Write a review of that product/service. Give it a 1-5 star rating (1 being awful and 5 being awesome) and explain why you rated it the way you did.
Keep in mind, you are being asked to share your personal opinions and purchasing experiences!
