From the Instructor:

Hello and welcome to the CAS 246 - Integrated Computer Projects.

Integrated Computer Projects is a class designed to help you plan, create and present projects integrating various software applications. You will use prior knowledge and critical thinking processes to solve unfamiliar business-related problems.

You will find this class different from other computer application classes you have taken. There will not be as much step-by-step instruction. Of course, no one expects you to already know all of the things that you will be asked to do in this class. You will be expected to be able to look things up and to combine your skills in unexpected ways, to explore unfamiliar applications and to use available resources to research techniques that you may find unfamiliar.

This can be an exciting way to learn but there are requirements. This is not a self-paced class. There are specific assignments and due dates. There will be partner and team assignments. You must log-in several times each week and be prepared to be an active participant.

This course will be using Desire2Learn, our Learning Management Software at PCC that is used to deliver online courses. To login to your course, please go to: online.pcc.edu and select our class from the list in the middle of the page.

If the class is filled please email the instructor, Noreen Brown noreen.brown@pcc.edu

Thank you,
