LIS312 is an introductory course, intended to teach basic Internet skills:

"Using the Internet as a medium for information, research, communication, and multi-media resources. Covers basic skills such as email, ftp, World Wide Web, file compression, use of search engines, and web publishing; introduction to larger issues such as governance, ethics and freedom of expression." (from the UT/GSLIS Course Catalog, 1999.)

This is a web-based course, and you can work at your own pace. However, you need to complete each module by the announced deadline, and you have to attend the following face to face meetings:

Mandatory orientation session on Wednesday September 5th, 6-9 PM.
Quizzes: three proctored quizzes, on the first Wednesday of each month, 6-9 PM, in SZB 546.


Participation in online discussions also constitutes an important portion of your grade.

The course makes use of video tutorials that require fast computers and a fast connection to the Internet in order to play correctly. I assume that you will be using Windows based computers, but you can use a Mac to meet many of the requirements. All necessary hardware and software is available to you in the GSLIS computer labs. Please read the system and course requirements pages for additional information.

Notes:
Web-based. Mandatory meeting on Wednesday, September 5 from 6:00 to 9:00P in SZB 546
