This class will have a weekly synchonous zoom session for which a videocam is useful but not required.

We will be using the online version of Google Earth in some of the labs.

Instructor comments:

 This is a remote version of an on campus lab class.  We will have weekly zoom classes at the time indicated in the schedule. The zoom classes will be recorded for later viewing which is useful if you can not attend during the weekly scheduled time.
