CS170 – Computer Applications for Business 1 RUTGERS THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW JERSEY Department of Computer Science Due to ongoing construction projects in the New Brunswick-Piscataway area, students are advised to avoid scheduling back-to-back classes on different campuses. For current information, visit http://route18update.rutgers.edu/ CS170 - Computer Applications for Business Welcome to Computer Applications for Business. This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of information technology, with an emphasis on business applications. The course examines computer hardware and software, networking technology concepts, and gives you hands-on experience with applications in presentation software, electronic spreadsheet, webpage design, and programming applications for problem solving using JavaScript and VB for Applications. No prior experience in using a computer is needed--this course is intended for beginners. Computer Applications for Business (01:198:170) meets for two 55 minute lectures per week, and one 55 minute recitation per week. The lectures are presented by your instructor. A teaching assistant (TA) will meet with you during recitation. New material is presented in lecture. Recitations are used to review class material; return and review assignments and exams; and answer questions related to lecture, software assignments, programming, etc. Questions are always welcome in lecture, but many students find it more comfortable to ask questions in a small group setting like recitation. Recitations meet in the computer labs for the entire semester. You are expected to attend lecture and recitation. Computer Applications for Business requires a considerable amount of computer work, which you must complete on your own time. All assignments are hands-on. As a general rule, you should expect to complete one assignment each week throughout the semester and schedule four to six hours per week in the computer lab. If you prefer to complete your assignments using your own computer, it is advisable to at least make sure your assignments work as expected on the lab machine as these are the standard against which you will be graded. This course will use Sakai, an online class management tool. Students enrolled for this class are expected to log in to Sakai using their Rutgers netid. https://sakai.rutgers.edu/portal . All assignments and announcements will come through Sakai.
