Instructor: Pierre Thiry

You will need to register for the course. By January 17, I will have added to the WebCT roster of the course CNIT 131  all the students who have registered with the College. By then you should be able to access the course by going to:

Log in with your Student ID number
(for the first letter make sure to use an upper case "W" or "D" - if your ID starts with an "@", use "X")
then use the password "changeme" or your old password if changed already.

*Of course you cannot login to any online course until after you have registered (CCSF)


Face to Face Orientation is optional for this course. However to get introduced to the course and to WebCT in a computer lab classroom environment, you can attend the orientation I will conduct on Thursday January 18 7:30-8:30pm, in Rosenberg Library Room 209.
