Important NOTES pertaining to this courseIt is important that you view ALL notes pertaining to your course.
Dear CIS45 Students:
Please read this information carefully, as it contains very important information about your course.
Your textbook is available online within your course as an EBOOK from the Pearson website. When you registered, you paid a nonrefundable digital course materials fee that covered the cost of this ebook. An optional printed copy of the ebook is available for purchase from your home college bookstore.
Assignments in this course are in both Desire2Learn and MyLabsPlus/MyITLab. See the schedule in the Content link to see what is due when. Ask your instructor if you need any clarifications.
You will click on the MyLabsPlus link on the course homepage to access the eBook as well as the MyITLab assignments. You must have a computer that can access and run the MyITLab simulation to succeed in this course. Check here: http://www.pearsonmylabandmastering.com/northamerica/myitlab/students/support-office-2013/system-requirements/index.html
Be aware that your school's computers may or may not be able to run MyLabsPlus/MyITLab. If you plan to rely on your school's computers, check with the I.T. department. Your school's I.T. department is not required to install additional software for CCCOnline classes, though they might occasionally be willing. Again, it's your responsibility to secure a computer upon which to do your classwork in MyITLab.
You will need to get the Access 2013 application for your course (such as Word, Excel, or Access) for your home computer. Access 2013 only runs in Windows. Check in your school's registration portal for possible free access to Office 365. Access is not available on a MAC (OS X). Therefore, you must use Microsoft Office 2013 for Windows only in order to have all required technology for this course. Access 2016 will not work for this course.
There will be assignments in MyLabsPlus as well as in Desire2Learn. Check the schedule available in the Content link in Desire2Learn to see what is due when.
It is your responsibility to get into the MyLabsPlus and MyITLab system as soon as possible once the class starts so that if there are any technical problems, you can contact the Help Desk (http://help.cccs.edu) and get the problem fixed immediately. Please do not contact your school's I.T. department about problems with MyITLab on your home computer.
Please note that if you have not successfully completed a MyITLab assignment by the drop date, you will need to consider if you should stay in the class or drop.
This course requires knowledge of basic computer usage, such as installing software, sending email, and so on.
Thank you very much for your attention.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you have a very successful semester!
