Before Signing Up
I recommend students obtaining basic computer knowledge before entering the first course in the series. Students should know how to open/save documents, use Microsoft products, have basic typing skills, and know how to use Windows operating systems.
First Day of Class
Students should come to class ready to work with a notebook, pen or pencil, USB flashdrive, and their own pair of headphones or ear buds.
Programs Used in Class
The majority of products we use in class are free to download and I recommend students who have computers at home experiment with the programs we use in class.
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and to be in an environment conducive to learning. Respect one another, the teacher, and the equipment at all times. Any form of disrespect or bullying will not be tolerated.
