Welcome to the information page for CSIS 45. Please send your email address to me at dvantassel@gavilan.edu so I will be able to contact you as needed. 

You will be able to access the course BEFORE January 25, 2015. If you e-mail me after enrolling for the class, I will set up an account for you and you can start on the course earlier. Students that attend some lectures/labs usually do quite good in this course, but contrast online-only students often do poorly. So plan to attend some lectures.

Click on the log on button below and follow the instructions. You must log on and begin the course within 3 days of the start of the class, or you may be dropped to make space for students wishing to add. There are 3 simple assignments, you can do without needing the textbook. Please contact me by email if you have any questions.
