CRN 30591

From the Instructor:
Welcome to CAS 216, Beginning Word! You must log in to the course and complete the first required assignment by Wednesday, June 25, 2014 to maintain your enrollment in the course. The instructions for this assignment are found on the Course Information page once you log in to the course in Desire2Learn. If you do not complete this assignment, your instructor will assign an NS grade on Friday, June 27th and you will be dropped from the course. If you have not taken an online course using Desire2Learn before, I highly recommend that you take the time to go to the PCC Distance Learning site and go through the orientation before the course starts. This will help avoid any issues in the first week of the course relating to navigating within Desire2Learn. If you have any course specific questions, please contact Joni Meisner at
Course Specific Requirements:
The required text for this course is Word 2010, Signature Series packaged with 180 day trial of MS Office 2010. Rutkosky & Roggenkamp, authors; Paradigm, publisher; ISBN 978-0-76384-501-8. Please note: If you have previously used a free trial of MS Word you may not be able to use the one that comes bundled with the new textbook. This is governed by Microsoft. Software/Hardware Requirements: Microsoft Word 2010 (Microsoft Works is not acceptable software to use for this course.) If you have MS Word 2013 you may use this version, but please make sure to let your instructor know. Also, due to differences in 2010 and 2013 the textbook will not always align since not all of the features/tools etc. are exactly the same. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 are acceptable operating systems for this course. You will need Internet Access and a PC with CD ROM. (Students using a MAC for this course must also have access to a PC. Some assignments must be completed on a PC rather than a Mac.) A printer may be needed if you want to print any of the course materials such as the calendar or syllabus. Flash Player software (free download found in Online Student Resources), and Adobe Reader software (free download) are also required.
