Appendix 4: Basic computer and Internet classes at SRJC
Before taking an online class at Santa Rosa Junior College, you should be thoroughly proficient in understanding and using the requisite concepts and tools, including hardware, operating systems, basic software, the Internet, online learning, and the CATE courseware system.
If you're uncomfortable with any of those concepts or skills, you need to take one or more of the appropriate courses at SRJC before undertaking an online class.
Hardware, operating system, and basic software
If you're not already thoroughly familiar with hardware, operating systems, and basic software such as text editing/word processing programs, you should take CIS 101A Personal Computers for New Users and CIS 101B Personal Computer Concepts and Practice as your starting point.
If you're sufficiently familiar with hardware, your operating system, and basic software, but you're not yet connected to the Internet or you're not comfortable with using a browser or sending, reading, and managing email, you should take a class such as CIS 58.31A Introduction to the Internet & World Wide Web or BOT 165.2 Introduction to the Internet before undertaking an online course.
Taking an online class
If you feel comfortable with hardware, software, and the Internet, but you'd like to develop some additional skills before you take an online class so that you'll be completely at ease in the CATE environment (SRJC's Web-based courseware system), you should take CSKLS 334 How to Take an Online Class to prepare yourself with all the concepts and skills you'll need to take fully online, rigorous college classes on the Net.
Schedule of classes
Whatever courses you need to take, you can find them via the SRJC schedule of classes.
