Distance Learners

For those who have signed up for CIS132 as a distance learner there are several thing you must know.

First and most important is that all quizzes and tests MUST be taken at BCC. Best would be to take it in class at the day and time listed. However, if this is not possible then other accommodations are possible any time I am on campus. Please make sure to contact me to make arrangements.

Second, CIS132 distance learners must notify me using the e-mail above to the fact that the will be taking the course in that manner. This should be done before the end of the first week of class.

Last and equally important, CIS132 distance learners are always welcome to sit in on any of the CIS132 classes. Just show up and pick a seat.
