From the Instructor:
Hello and welcome to CIS 120, My name is Ira Erbs and I will be your teacher this term. I have been teaching this course on campus and on line for a number of years. I have been an educator and IT (computer) consultant for over 20 years. I am an avid computer hobbyist. This class is designed to provide you with a broad range of IT experiences and challenges. Do not over-think the assignments, have fun and use the discussion section to post questions to your fellow students for help. I will monitor the discussions and provide advise and suggestions as needed.
Course Specific Requirements:
Students who already have basic computer skills such as: File management, know how to burn software, are able to read carefully and ask questions have been shown to be most successful taking on line Computer Courses. Since this is an online course, much more responsibility will rest on the students to carefully read all online materials and instructions and to contact your instructor with any questions. Probably one of the most important words to remember is READ. Also, of course, is to regularly login and participate in the course. If you have questions, contact the instructor at Required Book: DISCOVERING COMPUTERS 2014 COMPLETE Author VERMAAT Edition/Copyright 14 Published Date 2014 There are two versions of the book in the Book Store.
