News Welcome Posted Aug 22, 2011 Greetings, Welcome to Personal Computer Applications, CGS2570.0332 We will be guiding you through the online components of our course. We will endeavor to make sure that your taking of this course is worthwhile and you can become proficient in text-editing, spreadsheet, database, and presentation software. We will be using Microsoft Office 2010 as our applications suite, but the principles you learn here will also apply elsewhere. We are here to assist you, but it will be your responsibility to learn the material and keep up with the deadlines. Good luck, John Bolyard Scott Berrevoets David Cox Michael Sobleski Attention Students: 'Reply To' Email Address Are you a returning student? If so, your 'Reply To' email address may need updating in eLearning. Follow the steps below to verify/update it: - Click the "Preferences" link on the left side of your eLearning home page - Click the "Email" tab - Verify the 'Reply to' Email Address field and click the "Save" button For questions or concerns, please contact the ITS Help Desk at (850) 474-2075 or at [email protected] . - Information Technology Services Some Specifics Posted Aug 22, 2011 Greetings, I have some fairly draconian email conventions so that I can keep track of who has written me about a course matter—all the while keeping those emails as a priority, in spite of the spate of ads for enhancement pills, $6,000,000 bequests from overseas, dating opportunities in the Pensacola area (one of my wife’s least-favorite spams), and Internet hoaxes from the in-laws. By putting the course number, section number, your surname, and the topic in the subject line, e.g., "CGS2570.0332 Obama Word Project question", you'll give your email a much better chance of making it through any filters and getting my attention.

Using UWF email is also a requirement, of course, as we certainly can’t run a university's online course that depends upon the reliability of Hotmail, Yahoo!, Cox Webmail, or the like. If you email me and I don't respond, it's unlikely that it's because I've ignored your email. If you send me an email from Hotmail, etc., and/or type the subject line as just "Help", your email will likely languish in my Junk/Trash/Deleted box for a long time before I see it, if ever. This usually happens when someone hasn't read the syllabus, has procrastinated, something is due in only hours or minutes, and/or it's after the period assistance is available for a particular graded item. If you typed my email address wrong, you wouldn't expect me to ever see your email or be able to respond. Just consider the prescribed subject-line format and the use of UWF email to be the equivalent of typing my email address correctly. Sometimes, the first time I know an email wasn't sent
