CIS 108 Introduction to Internet: This course will prepare students to use the Internet. Emphasis is on introducing various World Wide Web resources, search engines, and electronic mail using an exercise approach.

It is strongly suggested that you take a typing class prior to this class. There is a great deal of typing required in this class and whenever you use e-mail and other portions of the Internet. Think of it as efficient use of electronic equipment and time online. Being unable to type is, in fact, wasting resources.

Be sure you are punctual. Audio-visuals and lecture notes will be started at the beginning of each session.

Project 1 - Introduction to Netscape - Video: The Amazing Internet (1), Netscape Tutorial (4.5)

Project 2 - Information Mining Using web Search Engines - Video: Searching the Internet (3), Discovering the WWW (4)

Project 3 - Conversing Over the Internet - Video: Internet E-Mail (2)

Appendix A - Popular Web Sites


The first class, set up an e-mail account at Hotmail.com so that you can send me information between classes and I can respond to your questions and concerns before the next class. A tutorial on how to register for Hotmail is at: members.tripod.com/~MrMorrison/HotmailReg.html

After you are successfully registered at Hotmail, click 'compose' and send me an e-mail similar to this:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TO: Cptrtchr@hotmail.com

Subject: My first Internet Assignment

CC: (Your new e-mail address including @hotmail.com)

BC: [Nothing goes here...it is for use when you want to send a copy of your e-mail message to a person and the person next to "TO" will not see the address typed here]

Message: I have completed the registration for Hotmail. My new e-mail address is:

My name is: My ID number is:

I will remember to check my e-mail at the beginning of each class to see if I have messages from you or others.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will copy your address from your e-mail message to my hotmail addressbook and eventually into a 'group' which will be used to send you information about the class.

Remember, you can use this hotmail account forever (or until MicroSoft stops providing it) at any internet-connected computer in the world to send and check your mail. If you have friends who have e-mail addresses, you can write them and they can reply to your e-mail address.

Typed assignments can be composed in Hotmail, sent to your own hotmail address (next to TO: put your e-mail address), then read and printed. You will not e-mail me these assignments, but instead print a hard copy in class and give to me before you leave. You will, by following this procedure, have a copy of all your classwork at Hotmail if you need to reprint an assignment or change the answers you have placed there. Alternatively, you can use any word processor to type, print, and turn in this work.

One section of the book which you might find useful is "Popular Web Sites" (Page NN A.1). There will be no specific assignments from this page, but you might find it beneficial or enjoyable to use this section any time during or after the course.

Complete each line of work before moving to the next line down:

You will have 3 class sessions to complete each Project including the test. This is about 5 pages of the text per class.

You are responsible for 24 hours of time in the Lab during this summer session. Check the lab hours now for their hours of operation.
