Instructor notes:

This late start class is a comprehensive course that uses Canvas as the course management system.  Topics include computer concepts, the operating system, and word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, database, and Web browser applications. The course emphasizes applied computer applications skills and techniques, computer concepts and ethical considerations, and the use of computer applications as integrated tools to perform professional-level analyses.

One week prior to the start of class students will receive an email from the instructor explaining the course requirements.  Please remember that you will not be able to login into Canvas to view course content until the first day of class on September 5 (Tuesday).  Consistent contact is an essential component of this course.  I will be available by email and phone to respond to any questions that you may have throughout the semester.

Microsoft Office on a Windows operating system is a requirement for this course.  If you are currently using an Apple computer, you will need to use the computers available on campus or download a Virtual Machine environment to use online at home. Instructions on how to do this will be provided at the beginning of the semester.  Additionally, a reliable internet connection and purchasing the book bundle will be a key part of your success in this course.

Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions concerning the course.
