Course Details

In this six-week course, an experienced Project Management Professional will help you master the essentials of project management. At the end of this course, you'll receive a certificate indicating your completion of PDUs equal to the number of hours of this course. You'll learn about project politics and ethics, project measurements, project closure and more.

Topics Covered

Week 4
•    Wednesday - Lesson 07

Today, we'll discuss two different sides (deliverables and stakeholders) of the same coin, then you'll develop an understanding of methods that will help you generate excellent ideas to provide project solutions that satisfy expectations. You'll learn how deliverables are prone to change and see how quality function deployment (QFD) identifies and satisfies stakeholder requirements. You'll understand how brainstorming, brainwriting, the nominal group technique, and affinity diagrams lead to excellent project management ideas.

•    Friday - Lesson 08
As a project manager, you need to practice a high level of business ethics and also be aware of organizational politics. Also, you must be aware of conflict situations and take action to manage conflict at the right time and in the right way. In this lesson, I'll provide an overview of ethics, describe how ethics can be practically applied, and specify how to establish an ethical tone in your organization. You'll learn the nature of organizational politics, understand the nature of conflict, and find out why some project teams experience more conflict than others. Finally, I'll help you learn how to develop solutions to effectively manage conflict.

Week 5
•    Wednesday - Lesson 09

Today's lesson is very important. Everything we've discussed so far comes together in this lesson as we form a project plan. Project plans vary in their amount of detail. The project plan that will be presented today has 14 sections. Our project plan will begin with the foundational elements (project strategy, executive summary, statement of work, work breakdown structure, and project schedules), continue through supporting elements (human resource plans, procurement plans, interface plans, and configuration management plans), and conclude with controlling elements (work control plans, quality control plans, cost control plans, risk management plans, and reporting plans).

•    Friday - Lesson 10
Earlier in the course, you learned abut the basic ingredients associated with project implementation. In this lesson, we'll expand upon these fundamental elements so you can successfully implement your project plan. We'll start off by identifying areas that will jumpstart your project into action including key factors for a successful project, the power of using a pilot, use of work packages, setup of project accounts, and holding a project kickoff meeting. Next, we'll explore the interpersonal aspects of project execution including empowering your project team, creating team rules, using effective communication, applying effective decision making, and solving problems. We'll finish up by identifying and managing tradeoffs, discussing how to effectively meet with stakeholders, and using a project notebook.

Week 6
•    Wednesday - Lesson 11

Project control is the most important activity for your project. Regardless of how much time and effort you invest into your project plan, it's likely that your actual results will differ from what you expect. If you don't effectively control your project, the chances of meeting your project objectives are very slim. In this lesson, we'll expand on what we discussed earlier in the course. You'll learn the importance of project control, project performance measurements, and project reporting. You'll discover why Earned Value is an outstanding method to control project cost and performance. You'll also find out how a periodic project audit can keep your project on track.

•    Friday - Lesson 12
In our final lesson, we need to talk about what happens at the end of a project. To help increase your understanding about this topic, we'll work together to identify and discuss all the necessary activities that you must follow to effectively close your project. You'll work through the steps of project closure and also identify reasons why your project may not be successful. After you finish this lesson, you'll be well prepared to hold a formal project closure activity.

Think of how many sentences you can say that start this way! You'll also learn some fun Spanish phrases, and by the time we're through, you'll be creating more and more sentences.

Week 2
•    Wednesday - Lesson 03

Now it's time to combine the Magic Circle and Hay Recipes, but our bigger goal of the day is to learn to move quickly from one recipe to another. Fluency in Spanish is all about switching from one recipe to another. This lesson will help you get up to speed!

•    Friday - Lesson 04
In this lesson, we'll move on to our third recipe, the ¿Dónde Está? Recipe. We'll also learn more parts to the Magic Circle Recipe and lots more vocabulary. And you'll take your first giant step toward Spanish fluency by learning everything you need to know to converse in a Spanish-speaking restaurant.

Week 3
•    Wednesday - Lesson 05

In this lesson, you'll practice the three recipes we've discussed in the previous lessons. You'll also learn adjectives, numbers, and how to tell time in Spanish. And put on your track shoes because it's time for a few speed drills to teach you how to respond quickly with your newly learned Spanish!

•    Friday - Lesson 06
Since it's a great start to any conversation, this lesson will teach you how to talk about the weather in Spanish. You'll also learn about the seasons, the months of the year and the days of the week. We'll also look at a few more fun phrases and practice some more speed drills.

Week 4
•Wednesday - Lesson 07

Today we'll travel to a Spanish-speaking country and I'll introduce you to my hapless old friend, David Smith. You'll need to learn some travel-related vocabulary and fun phrases for our journey, so we'll go over all you need to know in this lesson.

•    Friday - Lesson 08
In this lesson, you'll learn our fourth recipe, Tengo/Tiene, and a few related fun phrases. You'll also learn to produce wh-questions-who, what, when, where and why? Our major goal in this lesson will be to become quicker in using your four recipes and fun phrases.

Week 5
•    Wednesday - Lesson 09

Is there a doctor en la casa? Today's lesson will teach you how to discuss physical and mental health issues in Spanish. We'll also learn how to identify different types of clothing. And we'll go over many more vocabulary words that you can use with recipes one through four.

•    Friday - Lesson 10
Our fifth recipe is Quiero/Quiere, which means I want/you want. That means we'll learn how to share our wants and needs in everyday Spanish-speaking situations. Also, you've learned a lot of verbs in our previous lessons. In this one, we'll add a few reflexive verbs to your vocabulary.

Week 6
•    Wednesday - Lesson 11

By learning recipe six, Me gusta/Le gusta, you'll be able to share your likes and dislikes in Spanish-speaking situations. Also today, you'll practice recipes one through five, and learn a score of occupational-related vocabulary.

•    Friday - Lesson 12

¡Qué Extraño! In this final lesson, you'll learn to speak on the phone in Spanish. We'll also practice how to produce complex negative sentences so you can get mad in Spanish! And we'll do one final search for mi amigo, David Smith!

Course Details

In these hands-on lessons, you'll learn how to create informative, eye-catching charts and harness the power of Excel's data analysis and filtering tools and so much more. Anyone who wishes to learn the concepts of Excel can attend this course. By the end of this course, you'll discover how to use Goal Seek and Solver and apply them to real-world problems. And you'll set yourself apart from the casual Excel user by adding VLOOKUP, INDEX & MATCH, and Excel's other time-saving functions to your repertoire.

Topics Covered

A new session of each course starts monthly. If enrolling in a series of two or more courses, please be sure to space the start date for each course at least two months apart.

Week 1
•    Wednesday - Lesson 01
In our first lesson, you'll discover why Excel 2010 is such a powerful and user-friendly charting tool. To you, a workbook's numbers might tell an interesting story. But to others, that story might not be quite so obvious—they might just see plain old numbers. So today, you'll find out how to choose the right chart for telling your story, and then how to create, format, and edit your chart to help others clearly visualize that story.

•    Friday - Lesson 02
There are so many great charting features and enhancements in Excel 2010, there's no way we could cover all of them in a single lesson. So today, we'll continue exploring Excel's charting options—this time looking at the lesser-known options that are available to you. Even though they aren't well known, these options can add tremendous value to your worksheets in the right situations. We'll walk through a few of them step-by-step, so you'll see the value for yourself.

Week 2
•    Wednesday - Lesson 03
Working with data in Excel can be quite easy—and sometimes even fun—when you know about the extra tools that are available once you have your data arranged in a table format. One of these great tools is the Auto Filter command. In today's lesson, you'll learn how to use Auto Filter to limit your table information to just the records you want. Not only does Auto Filter allow for finding exact matches, but it can also filter and sort based on cell shading or font color. How great is that?

•    Friday - Lesson 04
Normally, you'll use your Excel workbooks as a place to enter formulas and get answers. But what if the formula isn't returning the answer you want? If you know what you want, but you just don't know what formula will get you there, then Excel's Goal Seek is exactly what you need. This tool will help you avoid the trial-and-error approach that most Excel users go through to get to the right answer. In this lesson, we'll walk through multiple examples together, exploring several ways to apply this great feature.

Week 3
•    Wednesday - Lesson 05
Today, you'll learn how to use one of the best features of Excel: the PivotTable. If you've heard about PivotTables before, then you know what I mean. There's no greater what-if analysis tool to summarize, reorganize, and report data. When we practice creating a PivotTable, you'll discover how "pivoting" your data helps you gain valuable insights by seeing the same information from a different perspective. This is a lesson you won't want to miss!

•    Friday - Lesson 06
Just like charting, Excel's PivotTables are too big a topic to fit into one lesson. So today, we'll take PivotTables to the next level by taking a tour through some of Excel's more advanced techniques. You'll learn how quick and easy it is to group your data to give your PivotTable even more power. Then you'll find out how a PivotTable can serve as your source and inspiration for some really nice charts, specifically, the PivotChart. Last, you'll become an expert in using a new Excel 2010 PivotTable filtering tool called Slicer.

Week 4
•    Wednesday - Lesson 07
Have you ever worked with a financial model in Excel and wondered how you could speculate different outcomes by changing different input amounts? The Excel Solver can do just that. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use Solver to solve a complex problem based on the criteria and constraints we provide it. If you liked the Goal Seek lesson, then this Solver lesson is going to knock your socks off.

•    Friday - Lesson 08
There's nothing more exciting than learning how to master a new feature in Excel.  In Excel 2010, Microsoft added a thrilling new feature called Sparklines.  In today's lesson, we'll explore in detail how to create all three types of Sparklines, as well as formatting options for each.  By the end of the lesson, you'll have the skills to create dashboard-like mini charts sure to make you the envy of your office.  If you enjoy creating charts, you'll really enjoy this lesson.

Week 5
•    Wednesday - Lesson 09
Today's topic is a student (and instructor) favorite. In this lesson, you'll find out how to use macros to turn boring, repetitive, time-consuming tasks into automated Excel functions. Tired of doing the same formatting on the same report month after month? Here's your chance to see how to record a macro that performs that time-consuming task in seconds with just one swift click of a button! How will you spend all the extra time that this lesson will save you?

•    Friday - Lesson 10
If you've used Excel for a while, you know there are hundreds of functions at your disposal. We're going to spend the last three lessons of this course going over exactly how and why you'd use them. We'll start today by going through a quick overview of all the categories of functions and the different methods you can use to create them. Then, later in the lesson, we'll ease into creating various functions using some from the Text category.

Week 6
•    Wednesday - Lesson 11
Next to learning how to create macros, most students want to learn as much as they can about Excel functions. In today's lesson, we'll dig a little deeper into using some of the slightly more complex functions that you'll find in the Math & Trig category. Specifically, we'll look at two of my favorites, the SUMIF and COUNTIF functions, and discuss how to use one of Excel 2010's new functions, SUMIFS. If one of your objectives in taking this course is to learn more about functions, you're in for a treat!

•    Friday - Lesson 12
Since functions are such an important and integral part of using Excel, we'll spend our final lesson going over a few more of them. Today, you're going to learn how to use the extremely popular VLOOKUP function. If you're already accustomed to using VLOOKUP, don't feel short changed, because we're going to add to the complexity. We're going to use the INDEX and MATCH functions to do something just short of amazing. This is another lesson you won't want to miss!

Course Details

In this course, you'll break through the technology barrier and learn how to use your DSLR to take beautiful photos. Anyone who wishes to explore and develop the shutterbug in themselves can join this course. By the end of this course, you'll truly be a DSLR master, and most of all, you'll be able to use your camera to take the photos you've always dreamed of. With these skills, you'll be able to take your photography to the next level.

Topics Covered

A new session of each course starts monthly. If enrolling in a series of two or more courses, please be sure to space the start date for each course at least two months apart.

Week 1

•    Wednesday - Lesson 01
In this lesson, you'll explore the basics of your DSLR camera. We'll take a tour of the DSLR, examining the different parts, buttons, and controls, and we'll also explore the exposure mode options you can select for different shooting situations. We'll discuss some general maintenance and housekeeping issues with memory cards, batteries, and cleaning—and by the end of this lesson, you'll feel empowered to get started with your DSLR camera!

•    Friday - Lesson 02
Today we'll explore DLSR lenses. One of the most important features of the DSLR is the ability to change lenses based on shooting conditions. You'll find out how lenses work, and we'll discuss some of the most common DSLR lenses and in what shooting conditions those lenses can help you get the best photos.  We'll also talk about common lens filters and how they can help protect your lens and improve your photos.

Week 2


•    Wednesday - Lesson 03
Do you know how your camera sees a photo? In this lesson, you'll learn about the three components of exposure—aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. You'll also learn about metering modes and how your camera uses these to determine the correct exposure for a photo. We'll discuss autofocusing and how your DSLR determines focus, and you'll find out how to manage autofocus and solve some common focusing frustrations!

•    Friday - Lesson 04
We've talked briefly about aperture in earlier lessons, but in this lesson, we'll go deep into aperture. You'll learn how this aspect of exposure controls how much light enters the camera, and you'll discover how to control this light to affect the quality of your photos as well as certain focusing effects. We'll discuss how aperture is measured and how to use the Aperture mode on your camera, and before you're finished with this lesson, you'll have a chance to take some photos and practice using aperture!

Week 3

•    Wednesday - Lesson 05
Today we're going to talk about shutter speed—a second aspect of exposure. Shutter speed controls the amount of time that light enters the camera when you take a photo. You probably equate shutter speed with fast-action shots, such as sports photos. A fast shutter speed can stop action, but a slow shutter speed also offers a world of shooting opportunities. We'll explore both fast and slow shutter speeds in this lesson, as well as the Shutter Priority mode.

•    Friday - Lesson 06
In this lesson, we'll explore how ISO settings affect camera exposure. ISO manages the camera's sensitivity to light—the higher the ISO setting, the more sensitive. While ISO appears to be an easy fix for potentially dark photos, it can be a tricky setting to use. Today, you'll learn all about ISO solutions, as well as potential ISO problems, and you'll see how to manage ISO on your DSLR.

Week 4

•    Wednesday - Lesson 07
I promised we'd talk about flash photography, and here we are! In this lesson, you'll explore your DSLR's flash options. You'll learn about using and controlling the on-board flash, and you'll also learn how to use an external flash with your DSLR's hot shoe. You've likely heard that professional photographers use natural lighting, but professionals also know how to use a flash when they need it. We'll discuss how to get the best photos using your flash, and you'll learn the professionals' tricks as well!

•    Friday - Lesson 08
This lesson is all about editing photos and shooting movies on your DSLR. Your camera organizes photo information and stores the photos you take on memory cards. This way, you end up with a digital photo you can use on a computer or print. But how does this work, and what options do you have? What about resolution? What if you take a shot you love but just need a quick editing change to it? Your DSLR can help you with all of these issues, so today we'll spend some time in the DSLR's menu options!

Week 5

•    Wednesday - Lesson 09
Manual mode is an exposure mode on your DSLR that lets you make all of the decisions. You get to choose the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO . . . basically, anything you can configure or change, you can do it in manual mode. The good news is that manual mode gives you complete control over your camera. The downside is that there's a bit of learning curve that comes with control. In this lesson, you'll learn how to master manual mode and use it in a variety of shooting situations. To be a great DSLR photographer, manual mode is a must!

•    Friday - Lesson 10
Your DSLR is a sophisticated tool that can help you take great photos. But the DSLR can only capture what you choose for it to capture. As such, a poor photo through the viewfinder will be a poor photo it its final form. For all of the bells and whistles, your DSLR needs a human—a photographer—to capture great photos. In this lesson, you'll explore how to get better exposure through composition, managing available light, and working with a few additional DSLR features: the histogram and exposure bracketing.

Week 6


•    Wednesday - Lesson 11
In the previous lesson, you learned about a helpful feature called exposure bracketing. With exposure bracketing, you can take several identical photos using different exposures. This way, you can choose which photo looks best. Exposure bracketing also offers another option—shooting high dynamic range (HDR) photos. With an HDR photo, you combine all three exposures from the bracketed shots, creating a photo with a higher range of color and exposure than you could capture otherwise. We'll explore this in today's lesson, and you'll have lots of opportunities to practice as well!

•    Friday - Lesson 12
Even though your DSLR is a wonderful camera, there are a few specific shooting situations that are always difficult to master. In this final lesson, we'll explore the three kinds of photos that give DSLR photographers the most trouble: fast-action shots, macro shots, and low-light photography. The good news is your DSLR can help you master these shooting situations if you know how to use the camera's tools and features, and in this lesson, you'll see how to put these features to work!

Conducted by software architect, Brian Hall, this course on Java will start with the basics of programming and then move on to training you on how to write your own programs and integrate input and output, calculations, decision making, and loops. Anyone who wishes to learn the concepts of Java programming are welcome to join this course. After completing this course, participants would gain a complete knowledge of the concepts of Java programming and would also be able to implement the concepts effectively.

Topics Covered

The topics covered include:

Week 1


•    Wednesday - Lesson 01
Java is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world, on machines from microprocessors in DVRs and microwaves to supercomputers. This lesson will introduce you to computer programming in general and to Java in particular. I'll get you set up with the downloads and installations you'll need for the rest of the course, and I'll walk you through the process of editing, compiling, and running computer programs written in Java.

•    Friday - Lesson 02
Now that you have the software downloaded and installed, you're ready to start programming! Today you'll write your first Java program. Along the way, you'll learn to create projects and classes in BlueJ. You'll use the editor to enter your program, and you'll find out more about how to compile it and run it. We'll also look at some of the basics of Java syntax (or form), some of its naming conventions, and its basic data types.

Week 2


•    Wednesday - Lesson 03
This lesson is about Java's primitive data types—the building blocks you need to use before you can build more complex types. I'll show you how to use them in some simple programs, and we'll look at how they relate to each other. Beyond that, we'll look at how to use a few of the classes in the Java libraries.

•    Friday - Lesson 04
This lesson introduces classes and objects. We'll revisit the HelloWorld application and rewrite it in Java's OOP (object-oriented programming) structure. While we're doing that, we'll look at how to declare classes, objects, attributes, and methods to Java.

Week 3

•    Wednesday - Lesson 05
Today we'll go over how to declare our data variables to Java and how to use variables in arithmetic expressions to calculate new results. We'll also talk about data input, which means getting information into our programs from an outside source. Then we'll write a program that incorporates all these features.

•    Friday - Lesson 06
Making decisions is one of the most important and powerful things a computer language can do. Without decision-making, computers would be big, bulky calculators. We're going to look at the decision-making process in detail and see how Java does it. When you're done with this lesson, you'll know how to write Java programs that make decisions based on the principles of computer logic.

Week 4

•    Wednesday - Lesson 07
In this lesson, you'll learn to repeat actions using a control structure called a loop. Loops in Java involve decisions, just as branches do. But in a loop structure, if the condition is met, the branch is backward instead of forward, allowing us to repeat actions. We'll also finish our temperature program.

•    Friday - Lesson 08
Today we'll discuss how Java generates exceptions and how we can prevent them from crashing our programs. We'll also look class methods and how to call them without creating any objects. Last, you'll find out about a debugger, which lets us look at what's going on inside our program as it runs.

Week 5

•    Wednesday - Lesson 09
This lesson is a grab bag of tools and topics. BlueJ's debugger lets you watch your program's internal actions as it runs. Enumeration lets you set up new data types with built-in limits on their values. Finally, Java's switch structure lets you replace a series of nested if statements with a single value-based structure. You'll find all these items useful in future programming!

•    Friday - Lesson 10
How can you make numbers and other output look the way you want them to in Java? In today's lesson, I'll show you. We'll also look at Java's application program interface(API). That's the documentation of all the classes that Java includes when you install the JDK, plus explanations of how to use them. The interface has several thousand classes, and it's important to know how to find things within it.

Week 6

•    Wednesday - Lesson 11
So far in this course, everything has been text-based. Today I'll introduce you to the world of Java windows, and we'll begin to look at GUI (graphical user interface) programming in Java. We'll look at the basic components of a Java window and then add some simple graphics to it.

•    Friday - Lesson 12
In our final lesson together, we'll continue our short exploration of Java 2-D graphics with a look at some simple animation. We'll use the same technique cartoonists have used for a hundred years now: redrawing an image in a slightly different location and repeating that process many times a second so the image appears to move. You'll learn to create a self-contained object that "knows" its own size, color, shape, location, and how to draw itself into our window. This is a fun lesson.

Course Details

Conducted by Finance professional and teacher, Chad Wambolt, this hands-on course on Microsoft Excel 2013 will train you how to how to create informative, eye-catching charts and graphs and harness the power of Excel's data analysis tools, AutoFilter commands and more. Upon completion of this course, the skills you would acquire would add muscle to your repertoire and would help you immensely in landing a good job.

Topics Covered

The topics covered in this course include:

Week 1

•    Wednesday - Lesson 01
In the first lesson, you'll discover why Excel 2013 is such a powerful and user-friendly charting tool. To you, a workbook's numbers might tell an interesting story. But to others, that story might not be quite so obvious—they might just see plain old numbers. So, today, you'll find out how to choose the right chart for telling your story and then how to create, format, and edit your chart to help others clearly visualize that story.

•    Friday - Lesson 02
There are so many great charting features and enhancements in Excel 2013, there's no way we could cover all of them in a single lesson. So, today, we'll continue exploring Excel's charting options—this time looking at the lesser-known options that are available to you. Even though they aren't well-known, these options can add tremendous value to your worksheets in the right situations. We'll walk through a few of them step-by-step, so you'll see the value for yourself.

Week 2

•    Wednesday - Lesson 03
Working with data in Excel can be quite easy—and sometimes even fun—when you know about the extra tools that are available once you have your data arranged in a table format. One of these great tools is the Auto Filter command. In today's lesson, you'll learn how to use Auto Filter to limit your table information to just the records you want. Not only does Auto Filter allow for finding exact matches, but it can also filter and sort based on cell shading or font color. How great is that?

•    Friday - Lesson 04
Normally, you'll use your Excel workbooks as a place to enter formulas and get answers. But what if the formula isn't returning the answer you want? If you know what you want, but you just don't know what formula will get you there, then Excel's Goal Seek is exactly what you need. This tool will help you avoid the trial-and-error approach that most Excel users go through to get to the right answer. In this lesson, we'll walk through multiple examples together, exploring several ways to apply this great feature.

Week 3

•    Wednesday - Lesson 05
Today, you'll learn how to use one of the best features of Excel: the PivotTable. If you've heard about PivotTables before, then you know what I mean. There's no greater what-if analysis tool to summarize, reorganize, and report data. When we practice creating a PivotTable, you'll discover how "pivoting" your data helps you gain valuable insights by seeing the same information from a different perspective. This is a lesson you won't want to miss!

•    Friday - Lesson 06
Just like charting, Excel's PivotTables are too big a topic to fit into one lesson. So, today, we'll take PivotTables to the next level by taking a tour through some of Excel's more advanced techniques. You'll learn how quick and easy it is to group your data to give your PivotTable even more power. Then you'll find out how a PivotTable can serve as your source and inspiration for some really nice charts, specifically, the PivotChart. Last, you'll become an expert in using the Excel 2013 PivotTable filtering tool called Slicer.

Week 4

•    Wednesday - Lesson 07
Have you ever worked with a financial model in Excel and wondered how you could speculate different outcomes by changing different input amounts? The Excel Solver can do just that. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use Solver to solve a complex problem based on the criteria and constraints we provide it. If you liked the Goal Seek lesson, then this Solver lesson is going to knock your socks off.

•    Friday - Lesson 08
There's nothing more exciting than learning how to master a new feature in Excel. In today's lesson, we'll explore in detail how to create all three types of Sparklines, as well as formatting options for each. By the end of the lesson, you'll have the skills to create dashboardlike mini charts sure to make you the envy of your office. If you enjoy creating charts, you'll really enjoy this lesson.

Week 5

•    Wednesday - Lesson 09
Today's topic is a student (and instructor) favorite. In this lesson, you'll find out how to use macros to turn boring, repetitive, time-consuming tasks into automated Excel functions. Tired of doing the same formatting on the same report month after month? Here's your chance to see how to record a macro that performs that time-consuming task in seconds with just one swift click of a button! How will you spend all the extra time that this lesson will save you?

•    Friday - Lesson 10
If you've used Excel for a while, you know there are hundreds of functions at your disposal. We're going to spend the last three lessons of this course going over exactly how and why you'd use them. We'll start today by going through a quick overview of all the categories of functions and the different methods you can use to create them. Then, later in the lesson, we'll ease into creating various functions using some from the Text category.

Week 6

•    Wednesday - Lesson 11
Next to learning how to create macros, most students want to learn as much as they can about Excel functions. In today's lesson, we'll dig a little deeper into using some of the slightly more complex functions that you'll find in the Math & Trig category. Specifically, we'll look at two of my favorites, the SUMIF and COUNTIF functions, and discuss how to use one of the more complex functions, SUMIFS. If one of your objectives in taking this course is to learn more about functions, you're in for a treat!

•    Friday - Lesson 12
Since functions are such an important and integral part of using Excel, we'll spend our final lesson going over a few more of them. Today, you're going to learn how to use the extremely popular VLOOKUP function. If you're already accustomed to using VLOOKUP, don't feel short-changed, because we're going to add to the complexity. We're going to use the INDEX and MATCH functions to do something just short of amazing. This is another lesson you won't want to miss!

Course Details

Conducted by computer and networking expert, David Iseminger this course is an Introduction to Networking which explains the basics of computer networking in simple details employing concepts that are quite common to everybody. After completing this course, students will be able to perform basic computer networking tasks, such as DSL connectivity or configuring connections to an Internet Service Provider.

Topics Covered

The topics covered in this course include:

Week 1
Wednesday - Lesson 01

  • How networks have evolved over the last hundred years
  • Why every additional device that connects to a network greatly increases the value of the network.

By the time you've completed this lesson, you'll have a framework of knowledge that will take you through the rest of the course.

Friday - Lesson 02

  • Networks and networking
  • How networks work
  • Examples from our everyday experience
  • How to tell the difference between a network and networking, and realize that computer networks are a lot like freeway networks. You'll never look at an interstate the same way again!
  • Why shipping your data from one computer to the next is a lot like sending your distant uncle a new coffee mug for his birthday. Believe it or not, freeways and shipped gifts have a direct correlation to how networks and networking operate!

Week 2
Wednesday - Lesson 03

  • Have you ever heard someone refer to a computer as a server? Maybe you've heard someone talk about connecting computers in a peer-to-peer environment. Understanding the difference between client/server and peer-to-peer networks really helps you learn about computers and networking. So in today's lesson, you'll learn how to tell the difference between client/server and peer-to-peer networks, and when to use one instead of the other.


Friday - Lesson 04

  • Ethernet
  • Difference between a star topology and a bus topology, and the advantages of each. Is Ethernet or Token Ring the best modern network technology, and why? In this lesson, you'll get those answers and many more!

Week 3
Wednesday - Lesson 05

  • How routers operate
  • Why routers operate a lot like how a receptionist in a growing company handles telephone calls.
  • In this lesson, we'll build on information you learned in previous lessons, then you'll find out how a single interconnected network (the Internet) can actually span the entire globe. A global network is an amazing feat, accomplished by interconnecting network segments and routing data!
  • When you've completed this lesson, you'll understand how routing helps our data to cross the city, state, or an entire ocean.

Friday - Lesson 06

  • When people communicate, they speak a language—such as English—to exchange information. Computers communicate similarly over a network, but instead of speaking a language, they use something called a protocol. Protocols are similar to languages, and in this lesson, you'll learn about the protocols used in networking. You'll also learn which protocol has emerged as the dominant computer protocol, and why!

Week 4
Wednesday - Lesson 07

  • How the networking protocol TCP/IP operates. TCP/IP is a collection of protocols, and today you'll learn how TCP/IP divides its tasks
  • How TCP/IP uses addresses to direct data to its rightful owner—it's similar to how we use street addresses.

Friday - Lesson 08

  • How the Domain Name System (DNS) translates names into numeric addresses, and how all that allows your favorite Web site, e-mail, or file to appear on your computer screen
  •  How the entire computer industry comes to a consensus about how the Internet should work.

Week 5
Wednesday - Lesson 09

  • Wide Area Networks (WANs)
  • How they compare to Local Area Networks (LANs)
  • How data gets sent over long distances
  • How the Internet changed expensive, long-distance network connections
  • How Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) secures those Internet connections from prying eyes.

Friday - Lesson 10

  • Traditional means of connecting to remote LANs, and talk about exactly how dial-up Internet access works
  • Modern means by which many people connect to the Internet, including DSL and cable modems.


Week 6
Wednesday - Lesson 11

  • In this lesson, you'll apply many of the concepts you've learned so far in this course. We'll walk through the process of making an Internet connection, and you'll see the step-by-step process of creating a dial-up connection. Each step of the way, you'll come to understand what's going on behind the scenes. From there, we'll jump to connecting to the Internet using broadband connections, such as DSL or cable modems.

Friday - Lesson 12

  • In our final lesson, we'll tie all the previous lessons together, clarifying how new information about networks and networking can be quickly understood
  • Three categories into which networking knowledge can be placed, and see examples to apply your newfound network categories.

By the end of this lesson, your understanding of networking will be solid as a rock, and you'll be well-prepared for a lifetime of continued learning about networking!

Course Details

In this course on C programming, you will learn how to develop your understanding of programming fundamentals: input/output operations, decision making, and looping. Anyone who wishes to learn the basics of C programming can attend this course. After completing this course, students ill develop a complete grasp over the concepts involved in C programming and implement the same effectively.

Topics Covered

The topics covered in this course are as follows:

Week 1
Wednesday - Lesson 01

•    In the first lesson, you'll get an idea of where we've come from by taking a look at a brief history of programming languages.
•    You will also be taught about the .NET framework and get a better feeling for what makes C# so special.

Friday - Lesson 02
•    You'll now proceed to installing the C# compiler
•    You'll be trained to write, compile, and run our first C# program. Although we'll start with a small program, you'll see that even small C# programs can be a bit tricky. 
This lesson will give you a great opportunity to practice working with the compiler, something that you'll be using for the remainder of the course.

Week 2
Wednesday - Lesson 03

•    Now that you're comfortable with compiling and running simple programs, we can take a look at math. Don't worry, we won't be running calculations for launching the Space Shuttle. But you will be learning about the basic math operators that C# provides. And because we'll need some place to save the results of our calculations, we'll also talk about variables and their data types.

Friday - Lesson 04
•    This lesson is our first step into modular programming with methods. Methods are a helpful tool because they allow us to break up big programs into smaller, more manageable parts
•    We'll start by looking at a few built-in methods that are available to us to use in our programs.
•    You'll learn how to write your own methods and call them in your program. Hopefully you'll agree that this way of programming makes it easier to tackle large problems.

Week 3
Wednesday - Lesson 05

•    In this lesson, we'll continue building on the concept of methods by discussing methods that don't return any value. While these methods may not seem as important, they still help in making your program more modular.
•    You will learn about method overloading, which can help improve the readability of your programs by reusing method names within the same code file.

Friday - Lesson 06
•    By this point in the course, you'll be comfortable doing the basics of C#: working with variables, math, and methods. So now we'll turn our attention to the first programming structure: decisions. In this lesson, you'll learn about the if statement and how you can use it to let the computer choose which set of statements to execute based on some condition.

Week 4
Wednesday - Lesson 07

•    We'll continue our investigation of the decision structure in today's lesson by taking a look at more complex if statements.
•    You'll also learn how to use the switch statement to make decisions in your programs as well. This ability to have multiple programming structures is sort of like having another tool in your tool belt. Sometimes a job is far easier to do if you just use the right tool.
•    You may not always need to use every tool, but it's good to know what tools are there and how to use them. You'll find the same is true in programming.

Friday - Lesson 08
•    Keeping with the theme of programming structures, we'll now take a look at the repetition structure. Just as there were different ways to implement the decision structure, there are a couple of ways to work with loops. Specifically in this lesson, we'll talk about the while loop, the for loop, and the do loop. Each structure works the same in that they allow you to repeat statements, but each one is a little different. Here you'll learn their differences and add to the tools in your tool belt.

Week 5
Wednesday - Lesson 09

•    One of the most useful applications of loops is arrays, so it makes sense for us to build on your knowledge of loops and explore array variables in this lesson. In this course, you'll learn how to create and access array variables. We'll also see how to work with arrays and methods.

Friday - Lesson 10
•    Object-oriented programming is a big topic, and C# is an object-oriented language. We'll spend some time in this lesson going over exactly what an object is and how it relates to a class. Then you'll write a class that will store the data necessary to keep track of the time. Since you're writing this class, you'll have the ability to take this code and add it to any program that needs to store information about the time, such as appointment books and scheduling programs.

Week 6
Wednesday - Lesson 11

•    Obviously, computer programs are big time savers and really help us to automate things. But in order for a program to be really useful, it needs to be able to save data for use later. That's why, in this lesson, we'll go over data files in this lesson. You'll learn how to read from and write to external data files so you can store your user data forever.

Friday - Lesson 12
•    For the final lesson, we'll look at programs with a Graphical User Interface (GUI). While C# has an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that gives you the ability to easily create GUI applications, the code that's generated is buried deep in the file structure. So to show you that there's no magic going on. In this lesson, you will learn you how to build your own GUI without an IDE. By doing this, you'll be far better prepared for working with IDEs in the future because you'll know exactly what's going on behind the scenes.
