In General ...

Do you really need to buy the book?  Yes.  In each of my courses I use the book(s) extensively from day 1.

You MUST check OnCourse and your IUS e-mail daily. These are the only ways I will communicate with you (outside of class). It is the student's responsibility to check Oncourse and your IUS e-mail daily for special announcements and/or email from me. Using the excuse that "I didn't know ..." will not suffice.

I typically answer e-mail in less than 1 business day and usually sooner than that. However, if you need to speak to me immediately, please call my cell phone at (812) 207-6045. Please note that I sometimes cannot answer my phone immediately. Please leave me a voice mail if you want me to call you back.

Time Management
It is advised that you set aside time each day/week to complete the assigned material for the course.  DO NOT wait until the last minute to complete assignments; you should assume that you will have questions and build in time to research and solve problems.

How much time should a budget for homework/labs?  The generally accepted rule-of-thumb is that you spend twice the number of credit hours outside class.  For a 3 credit-hour class you spend about 3 hours in class per week and 6 hours outside of class for reading/studying/homework.  For my C105, Excel, Access, and Visual Basic classes, this means you should budget 3-6 hours per week for working the labs.

HTML/Javascript - these are 1/2 semester 1.5 credit-hour classes.  Half the credit hours x half a semester = same time commitment as a 3.0 credit-hour class.  Plus, you have to do the "in class" portion on your own.  This means you should spend about 3 hours working the weekly project and 3-6 hours on the labs for a total time commitment per week of 6-9 hours.

Academic Dishonesty
While some discussion of homework may be beneficial in the learning process, do not copy someone else’s work. Any such copying/sharing/theft of work will result in a grade of zero (0) for ALL parties involved.  WARNING:  is easy for me to determine who has shared homework when assignments are submitted electronically.

Indiana University Southeast’s policy on cheating and plagiarism is consistent with the definition of plagiarism provided by Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary.

To plagiarize is to:

  • Steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • Use (a created production) without crediting the source
  • To commit literacy theft
  • Present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

Indiana University Southeast also considers a student to be guilty of plagiarism if the student allows their original work to be used by another student for academic credit.

Note: Refer to the Bulletin for complete details of the Indiana University policy.

Students with Disabilities
Special arrangements can be made for students with disabilities. Those requiring academic adjustments of any class work or seating arrangements should give the instructor written proof of the disability within 2 weeks of the beginning of the semester or disability incident. Contact Hannah Wallace (, Office of Services for Students with Disabilities, Room LB006 for additional help.
