It is an introduction to computers and information Systems, hardware and software, data communications, networks, and the Internet.

For 'out of class' assistance, please sign up for a tutor. You may sign up for 2 half-hour sessions (per week) in each subject in which you are enrolled. Check out the Seattle Central Tutoring Center and eTutoring.org.
Americans with Disabilities Act: Students with documented disabilities requesting class accommodations, or require special arrangements in case of building evacuation should contact me at the beginning of the quarter and set up an appointment with the Disability Support Counselor in Room BE1112. Also, contact me early if you require a front-of-the-room computer so I can reserve it for you.
Assistants for students (sign-language, etc) are welcome in class. If you wish your assistant(s) to also receive emails for the class, please inform me with their email addresses - otherwise I will assume you will forward/discuss emails of note to them yourself. Also, you may need to make arrangements with your assistant(s) to assist you with interpreting any class videos, since at this time they are not produced with closed captioning.
Very Important: If there is an ADA machine in the classroom, the related keyboard is not to be unhooked. Please use another computer. Thanks!!
