This course provides students with the essential skills to build web applications using modern development technologies and practices.
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.
All instruction is instructor-led, face-to-face and may be delivered in three formats:
- In Class - all classes are taught in a classroom lab.
- Online - all classes are taught synchronously in real-time.
- Blended - delivery is both in a classroom lab and synchronously online, alternating weekly.
It is the students responsibility to carefully read the course section content below to know which delivery options are available for the course they are registering into.
- Registrations within 24 hours of course start time must be made by phone (403-220-2988).

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