Course Description

This course provides students with the essential skills to build web applications using modern development technologies and practices.

Course Details

Web applications and services are critical technologies in any organization. These applications and services are usually connected to a database and enable organizations with webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis and many other functions.

Using Microsoft .NET technology, C# programming language and Visual Studio IDE, this course covers ASP.NET to create, debug and deploy server-side applications, to use web server controls, validate data, write handlers that respond to page and control events, preserve state, redirect or transfer between web pages, and provide a cohesive look of multiple web pages using master pages and themes.

Accessibility standards, security concerns, hosting and payment processing options, using ADO.NET objects to present data, and the MVC approach to ASP.NET is also discussed.

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



It is strongly recommended that students attend every class. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate potential absenteeism to the instructor.
