Re: Proposal to teach Online Mid-semester course
Greetings, Stanley. I work with several HS counselors, and I have built-up a waiting list of 15-20 students requesting a Computer Overview, or Intro Applications, or combination course like CIS 700, 710, CSIT 101, respectively that would start mid-semester. These courses can satisfy HS requirements, and, along with its timing, makes it attractive to HS students.
I propose that if I can teach this course at COC, if COC has such a course in its curriculum, and if they will open it up at 20 students, then I would work hard to make this a success, and create links for more courses to follow!
I feel a personal obligation to students who find me on the web, and ask to enroll in my courses. The next time that I can enroll students is Summer I because of scheduling constraints. It would be so helpful to offer Online CIS courses, as a short-term courses ending at the semester. There is a large population of bright, techno-empowered students who have the software, commware (DSL/Cable), and XP systems to run this course effectively! I also provide CDs, quizzes on floppy disks transferable to Flash Drives, course workbook ($11) and a list of Online Quizzes, shown below.
The sooner that I get an answer, the better. Be well. Your colleague, Joseph Auciello. Prof. "A". Out.

You may study with other students, in fact, it is encouraged and consistent with our "Electronic Learning Community." Empowering ourselves and others is our goal! But you must submit your work yourself, with your signature on each project submitted as part of your portfolio. Assignments that you download, complete, and sign are will be placed in a Viewbinder that becomes, after grading, yours to keep. (I will show you a sample.)
philosophy is to 'empower' you, to "teach you to how to learn", crossing
boundaries, reaching the heights where your imagination and skills take you!
Combining creativity and hands-on skills will lead you to significant levels of
discovery and achievement! Becoming "Technology Empowered",
discovering for yourself, "Crossing the Digital Divide" and leaving you standing
there self-confident, self-reliant, and successful is the goal of this course!

ASAP. The quizzes are also on the Start Disk. Download this printout, and
start "answer matching" the questions. These same questions are presented by
the Start Disk that runs and automatically recrods scores. Show me that you know
