  JAN.16.05 A new lesson-quiz -- Web Quiz 01 --http://auciello.tripod.com.webqu01.html -- has been created.  Now, in addition to the 100 points or so that you get for passing the quiz, you can earn an additional 200 points for explaining how you did the work!  
  JAN.14.05 I updated  http://auciello.tripod.com/iq01.html -- look at it.

FYI: The CD is just a backup of this website, so it is only critical if you can't connect to the web.

The "Start Disk" is very important.  I am trying to be sure that everyone has one. It contains quizzes that are worth 2,000 points, almost enough for a "C".

Here is the email that I sent out today.  If you did not get this, email me asap and email yourself to be sure that your email is working!

Ask for your free cup of cappuchino.

Since I believe in Open Enrollment, I will ADD anybody to my CIS 701 or CIS 757 (Web Design) classes starting AUG.30.   The classes are either Hybrid (0156) or completely on this website (7830,7966).  Since they are highly computerized, I can usually add a few more students.   Understand, though, that the class is "performance-based" -- No Points,  No Grade.  Browse around this site, and figure out, if you can, how this course works.  There is a ton of info here.
