Welcome Back!

If you're registered for this course it means you're taking the course as a directed study course.   My plan for this semester is to treat this as an online class.  The recordings from last year's lectures will be posted on the eLearning site.   Homework and announcements will be posted on this (cisweb)  site.     As you are I'm sure aware, things that worked fine last year might not work the same this year.  I will be testing all the tasks that you'll be expected to complete before posting the videos and homework on that topic.   

The first assignment is a review assignment.  I've posted last year's review lecture on the eLearning site.  The NFS Review from last year didn't record therefore you may need to refer to the 133 lectures if you need a review on NFS.  The homework has also been posted. 

There will be approximately 10 or 11 vhomework assignments spread across the entire semester.  They will be posted, along with the respective videos as they are ready. 

As with CIS133, there is no required textbook for the course.   I will use on-line resources for the course and will post them on the Supplemental Materials page of this site.  Supplemental materials from last semester are available on this class's supplemental materials page.  

If you have questions about this site at any time and/or you have questions about the course, please do not hesitate to ask in class, email me, stop by during an office hour, or make an appointment to see me.  My office is in K-217, my email address is and my office hours are listed within my schedule.
