Hi! I am Kenneth Keil, and this is my portfolio for BCIS 3311 Social Media, with Mrs Harper!
Thanks for viewing my portfolio site, it is intended to showcase some of my work as a student at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor, as well as highlighting some of the important achievements I have made through taking BCIS 3311 (Social Media).
Over the course of this semester, I learned the importance of managing and enhancing my social media presence. As a part of that process I have developed connections on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook, as well as integrating social media APIs into my development companies portfolio site.
Contained in this site, you will find examples of several of my school projects in the favorite courses section and projects section. You will also find some examples of my ongoing website development projects, my resume, and a contact page you can use to email me, or message me using Facebook.

Web Design was definitely one of my favorite courses at UMHB. I learned the basics of HTML and CSS using Adobe Dreamweaver, before moving on to using Sublime Text Editor. My biggest "take away" from this course was learning how much I enjoy writing HTML and CSS, and finding different ways to style and present content on a webpage.
This course was my first introduction to the world of code, and development. We learned programming and development fundamentals using Microsoft's Visual Basic IDE. My final project was a website developed using Visual Basic. The website was designed to allow users to make reservations for a trip to many different mountain resorts in Colorado.
This course focused on learning the fundamentals of Java. It was an independent study course, offered during the summer. The course was highly challenging, as we went through nearly our entire text book learning different aspects of Java. The culminating exercise of the course was when we transitioned from using "behind the scenes code" to designing user interfaces. Considering that I most enjoy the front end aspect of development, I enjoyed the user interface exercise the most out of all of the challenging assignments we were given.
E-Commerce was a fun and challenging class, which I enjoyed taking. This course focused on nearly all aspects of business operations, and emphasized the special considerations which must be taken by anyone who wants to conduct business online. The final project for the class was for us to complete a business plan for an online business. We had to research every detail of what it would take to open our online retail store, including finding an actual location to operate out of, finding actual equipment, and finding actual inventory items to sell. The business plan also included developing a template style website with each of our products displayed for sale.
In database design we focused on building diagrams using Visio, then taking those diagrams and turning them into actual databases. The final project for this class was for us to build an actual functional database in Microsoft Access, that would be used by a real world client. Those with Microsoft Access software can download and view this full project file.
This course focused on the concepts behind developing software. We learned about both the traditional waterfall method of development, as well as Agile development. The course work consisted of creating Data Flow Diagrams, Entity Relationship Diagrams, Use Cases, Test Cases, and even plans for implementing a new system.
This class focused on teaching the basics of marketing. We learned about everything from how marketing research is conducted, to how marketing plans are developed. The final project was to come up with a product that was not already being manufactured by a particular company, then go through the entire process of developing the product's marketing plan.
This course focused on business management information systems, including topics such as Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, Customer Relationship Management Systems, Supply Chain Management Systems, Middleware, Software Development, and numerous others. The final project for this class was to interview a CIO for a real company, asking them a list of questions, and compiling a research report to accompany the information we gathered in our interview. Our team interviewed the Information Technology Director at HDnet / AXS TV

MountainPass.com was an e-commerce template based website, used as a final project in an e-commerce class I took at UMHB. The project included development of a fully feasible business plan, as well as an e-commerce website, which contains actual products that potential customers could browse through, and place into a virtual shopping cart to purchase after they have finished shopping.
Mountain Lift ticket .com was a Visual Basic final project. The site is designed to allow users to research different ski resorts by accessing their snow reports and live webcams. Once the user decides where they want to go, the site also allows them to book their accomodations.
This is a screenshot of some Java code. During my time studying at UMHB, I took an advanced programming class, which taught object oriented development using the java programming language.
During my time at UMHB, I also learned database design. We focused on building diagrams using Visio, then taking those diagrams and turning them into actual databases. This is the diagram for the final project in that class. Those with Microsoft Access software can download and view this full project file.
