    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Course was okay but the instructor was awful!

    Course highlights:

    General overview of information about computers and the internet. It touches on computer software, hardware, history, microsoft office, small applications, networking, internet, e-waste, and ethics. You aren't likely to actually learn too much from this course if you have a decent understanding of computers. If you have a reasonable instructor you should have an easy time with the course content.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not take this course with Charles Bocage unless you have no other options, read the last paragraph if you don't have a choice. This course should be an easy A even if you don't know much about computers. The assignments are easy and require very little effort as long as the instructor is reasonable. If the instructor is like mine, you will end up doing these easy assignments like they are major essay submissions like final papers for other classes. Otherwise, you can expect a simple discussion, easy quiz, and an application of course content assignment each week. The quiz is straight from the digital book and all answers can be found using the search feature. I will post the quizzes, I scored 100% on every one, to study, but the questions don't change and will be exactly the same every time. The book is provided by canvas in pdf format once you start the course. The discussion topic will vary, but is normally an opinion about software or some computing concept. The application assignment will normally have you use software to create something: a resume/cover letter in word, a budget or weather tracker using formulas in excel, talk about your computer components in word, create a network schematic using Gliffy, 787 network security using powerpoint, or create an e-portfolio using canvas. There were a few assignments that used turn-it-in, and some required creating a short video. There is a 50 question final exam but it's simple and can be looked up in the book like the quizzes. Do not take this course with Charles Bocage unless you have no other options. He spent an absurd amount of time pushing his philosophical ideas into all portions of each lecture; he tries even harder when they don't fit at all. He goes out of his way to pretend that how someone interacts with people determines how they interact with technology. He asks questions about what you learned during the lecture and then asks how you applied that during the next lecture. He should have spent more time teaching the actual course content instead because he often had to rush through the slides at the end of class and even skipped many of them. He takes APA to a whole new level and goes above what my english professors wanted. All discussions required formal APA (no contractions, slang to include about the topic of discussion, and in text citations). He wanted everything expanded upon even though the discussions was targeting 250 words or so. If you said you didn't like Microsoft Word so you used Google Docs, he would remove points for not explaining what exactly you didn't like about Word in great detail. If you made a claim like "the sky is blue", he wanted resources cited. You get the idea!
