Introduction Letter to MIC 151 ONLINE

Hello,

Welcome to the course!
My name is Yun Moh, and I am the instructor for MIC 151-ONLINE section that you are enrolled this quarter. This is a brief introduction to the course (a link to the course syllabus is at the bottom of this page).

It is an ONLINE course which means we “meet” online at a course Web sitet: http://angel.seattlecentral.edu
The User Id is your student ID number (e.g. 980123456), and the password is the first 5 letter of your last name, e.g. “wu” for Jill Wu or "obrie" for Pat O'Brien.

Please, logon to the course Web site on the first day of the quarter (after 10 AM) and get started – don’t wait until the weekend. You have the first assignment due this Wednesday. Once you logon, you will find all information you need at the Web site. If you have a question, post it at the Q&A Forum or email from the Web site (both under the Communicate tab).

For students who do not yet have the access to the course Web site or want to have a head-start, use the follow information to get started:

Software and Hardware

You do not need a special software for the course. You will use a basic text editing application (Notepad for PC and TextEdit for Mac) that comes with your computer. You will also need Internet Explorer and FireFox/Chrome/Opera.

Required Textbook

You may purchase the textbook at the campus bookstore (206-587-4148), the publisher's web site (www.course.com), or an online textbook merchant.

The e-book option is also available at around $40. A limitation of the e-book option is that you can view it on your computer only. Without a special software, you cannot use it on other computers such as the computers at the computer lab. It may be different now.

If you do not yet have the access to the course Web site at Angel Learning, here is a partial list of Week 1 assignments:

Tutorial 1

To do the coursework with the textbook, you need data files. Download the files from here in one zip file. It is a 80Mb file, so it may take some time.

The file you download is a zip file, so it needs to be unzipped before you can use the data files. To unzip, right-click on the file in either MyComputer or Windows Explorer. Here is a video demonstration of how to download the data files.

Unzip the file on your Desktop.

Alternatively, you may also download the files from the publisher's Web site

The insturctions on how to download is at www.cengage.com/ct/studentdownload

  • After completing the tutorial, complete the Review Assignments (pages HTML 61-63) and Case Problem 1 (pages HTML 63-65) at the end of the Tutorial 1. Be sure using the file names instructed in the textbook and saving them in the folders provided in student data files folder.
