Points and Tips

Very Friendly Reminder: This section of ITEC 2110 is a hybrid section. It may not be suited for those students who have limited computer skills. It is fast-paced and has limited time for intense in-classroom support. If you think your computer skills may be a problem, attend a regular section instead.

Note: Attendance is critical due to limited instructional time. Missing even a single class means missing too much.

Check your GGC email often. It is our formal communication tool. I do not use the build-in email system in D2L.
