Recommendations and Requirements

Course Duration

Courses are 30 hours and are scheduled to be completed in either 5 weeks or 10 weeks. Generally, 5 week courses have two classes per week, and 10 week courses have one class per week.

Delivery Formats

Courses may be delivered in class, online, or blended (both in class and online). All delivery formats will use Desire2Learn (D2L) and Adobe Connect Meeting (ACM) tools to varying degrees and it is the students responsibility to ensure they are comfortable with these tools prior to the start of the first class.

Students are encouraged to read Student Online Learning Resources to determine the delivery format that will best meet their learning needs.

  • Students familiar with D2L and ACM from previous course work, require no further introduction to these learning tools.
  • Students who register into an in class only course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take the necessary time to fully explore these learning tools prior to the start of class.
  • Students who register into an online or blended course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take BMC 352 Learning Online.

Required Tools

For online and blended delivery, students should have access to their own computer with required software, Internet connection, a headset with speakers and microphone, webcam, and a monitor large enough to display multiple applications (or the use of two monitors). Students should test their environment prior to the start of class to ensure everything is working properly.

Required Software

  • The software used in this course is Visual Studio 2015 which is a free download from Microsoft.
  • If necessary, additional software requirements will be announced at the start of the course.

Textbooks

  • The recommended textbook for this course is Murach's C# 2015.
  • Print textbooks may be purchased from a variety of third parties.
  • Online textbooks may be available from Murach.
