    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is highly interactive, and is filled with significant information that can be highly useful for anyone. I cannot find any reason for why someone should not take this course.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I had to complete two major projects. The first one that I had to complete was a research paper on a recent advancement in Information Technology that had to be 1,500 words in length, only in content, plus an annotated bibliography. This part of the course helped me to learn how to do proper research with reliable resources. For the second project I had to create a website in HTML5 about my research paper. This was the hardest part because I had not coded before, and I had to design the website from scratch. But the professor really did help in the process

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please take this course. There is so much information that will definitely help you with almost anything that you may choose to do in life. This course will teach you a lot of resourceful information, like how to prevent from being a victim of phishing and other common hacking incidents. It will teach you how to do basic coding and other computer and software related actions.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    To start, the title of this course is misleading. This is supposed to be an intro course, and yet, I feel as if I have been thrown into a 200 level computing course. Also it is not computing. TO me, computing is learning the functions and capabilities of a computer. This course teaches you how to the functions of the internet, and the differences between html and htm, for instance. I thought this course was an instructional one meant to give tips and advice on how to use certain programs within each computer. I was severely mistaken.

    Course highlights:

    I did learn how to code a bit. I twas interesting to see how easy coding could be. that was the only thing I can say was slightly interesting about this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If your major does not revolve around computing or engineering, be prepared to study overboard and spend an unnecessary amount of time on a course simply needed to meet the school's requirements.
