The CIS127 course is sometimes taught as a Hybrid class, which means that there would be * several nights in the semester that you will be requested to attend a Lecture and perform some Hands-On activity in our Lab Classroom. The few sessions on campus will be of great benefit for those new people to the software we use, plus gives you a chance to meet your professor and ask questions. If the hybrid is not offered, then all work will be done online.

* See the Homework Grid for the days, dates and time.

There is no way to get past these chores this week. Lots of my papers to read in the Course Packet (which might be offered in the College Bookstore as an option to purchase), and some will be online as necessary. So be prepared to Print out or review the .PDF files listed with this symbol: Adobe Acrobat and place them appropriately inside the Course Packet. Each week you may find more to print and read. Follow my instructions and suggestions each week and you'll get through this course without difficulty.

Lots of Material to review each week; some just good to know, some need to know, and perhaps some you already know. The more you expose yourself to, the more you will learn; you can take that to the bank!

Apply this logic to each and every week of the course; you will be amazed at the amount of material you will come to learn how to use on a regular basis after this course!
