This course is not applicable toward a degree in Computer Science. IV. Course Objectives and Outcomes • to develop in each student a fundamental realization of the importance of cutting-edge information technology (IT) in his/her life both at home and at work, given today’s knowledge-based and networked global world; • to give the student an understanding of technology issues related to his/her use of IT in his/her life and in the workplace • to give the student focused hands-on experiences to learn and/or extend Microsoft Office 2010 skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access) to better prepare him/her for competency and continuous IT learning in today's info-centric society; • to deliver to the student the pragmatic IT-related material they want to learn together with the material they need to learn in order to apply IT effectively in their personal lives and in their business world. Upon completion of this class, the student will be able to: • explain why it is essential that he/she be proficient in the use of IT in today’s world in both his/her personal life and at work; and feel that continuous learning about IT is essential for his/her survival in tomorrow’s world • analyze his/her personal IT needs and be able to make the hardware and software specifications for purchasing a new computer and peripheral devices • identify ways to safeguard against data loss, unauthorized computer access, viruses and malware • utilize Windows 8 for file management, computer maintenance and security • use Microsoft Word 2013 at an intermediate level to create flyers, handouts, resumes, cover letters, research papers, and newsletters • use Microsoft Excel 2013 at an intermediate level to construct and use spreadsheets for decision-making and what-if analysis • use Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 at an intermediate level to create professional presentations to enhance and enrich communication abilities. • use Microsoft Access 2013 at a basic level to build and use a simple database Page 1.
  • 2. ULM College of Business Spring 2014 V. Course Topics This is a hands-on course where you will learn to use a computer to practice the most commonly used Microsoft programs including the Windows operating system and the four most popular programs within the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access). Within the Microsoft Office Suite, you will use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. Microsoft Word is a word processing program with which you can create common business and personal documents. Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program that organizes and calculates accounting-type information. Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation graphics program with which you can develop slides to accompany an oral presentation. Finally, Microsoft Access is a database program that organizes large amounts of information in a useful manner. Computer literacy concepts will also be explored with an emphasis on practical topics such as buying technology, file management, computer maintenance, and security issues. For a detailed list of course topics, see the course schedule at the last section of this course syllabus. VI. Instructional Methods and Activities All course activities will be coordinated through Moodle. In addition to Moodle, we will use a computer-based training and assessment platform called MyITLab (read “my eye tee lab”), accessible at http://www.myitlab.com. MyITLab simulates Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 and guides you through the projects in each chapter of the textbook. Since it simulates the environment, MyITLab does not require those software packages to be installed in order to run. Google Chrome is the recommended browser. You will need to set up your student access using the course code and your personal access code. Step-by-step instructions on setting it up are on Moodle. If you are local, Office 2013 and MyITLab can be accessed in the Hemphill Hall labs (e.g. HMPH 221), the library lab and the SSC. All exams and assignments will be managed through Moodle and/or MyITLab. Due dates and times for assignments are given in the last section on this syllabus and are posted with the assignment specifications. Except for exams, late assignments will not be accepted. An exception to this rule would occur only in extreme circumstances such as an extensive period of illness and will require university approved documentation covering the entire time period of the assignment. All activities for the course are individual activities. Activities for the semester include 3 exams: Word, Excel, and a combined Access/PowerPoint exam all administered via MyITLab . There will be MyITLab skill-based trainings and grader projects which simulate Office 2013 applications and guide you step-by-step through various projects. Additionally, concepts and matching exercises reinforce key ideas. VII. Evaluation and Grade Assignment Your semester grade will be based how many points you earn out of 575 points. There are 580 possible points so there is a built in 5 point bonus. Final grades will be assigned according to the following scale: A B C D F 90-100% 80 – 89% 70-79% 60 – 69% 0 – 59% (603 - 670 pts) (536 - 602 pts) (469 - 535 pts) (402 - 468 pts) ( 0 - 401 pts) Note: Undergraduate mid-term grades will be posted on-line for students to view via Banner. Mid-term grades indicate a student’s status at mid-semester only and do not indicate the final performance outcome of a student. Assignments that are not automatically graded by MyITLab will be graded within one week. All assignments in MyITLab will be automatically graded and will be shown in the MyITLab gradebook. Those grades will NOT show in the Moodle gradebook until transferred by the instructor. This will occur within one week of the assignment due date. The table below is a summary of evaluated activities. See the details below the table for activities as indicated. Page 2.

The project file you download from grader from your MyITLab account will have a unique code inserted by MyITLab that is not visible. If you submit a different file (with someone else’s code) MyITLab will flag the submission as a security violation. Any projects with security violations will receive a grade of 0 for the project and be considered an act of academic dishonesty. See section VIII. D. Academic Integrity. VIII. Class Policies and Procedures All policies stated in the current ULM Student Policy Manual & Organizational Handbook should be followed (see http://www.ulm.edu/studentpolicy/). Need for Assistance: If you have any condition, such as a physical or learning disability for which you need extra assistance, please see me immediately. If you have already met with Special Services, please provide me with information regarding your special need as soon as possible so that appropriate accommodations can be made. A. Textbook(s) and Materials: Bookstore Package (includes student access code): MYITLAB W/GO! EBOOK AND MSOFFICE by Gaskin; ISBN 0-13-381399-1 This MyITLab course is based on the textbook: Go! Microsoft Office 2013 Volume 1, Gaskin, Ferrett, Vargas, McLellan The ULM bookstore (318 342 1985) offers the ebook plus student access code packaged together at a price discounted from purchasing the two separately. The publisher, Pearson, offers materials directly as well. B. Attendance Policy: The class attendance regulations in ULM Student Policy Manual will be followed. Page 3.
  • 4. ULM College of Business Spring 2014 C. Make- up Policy for exams: Makeup exams will be only given for university approved excuses in extreme circumstances as explained in the previous section. Computer problems and/or failure to allow you enough time to do the assignments are not acceptable excuses. D. Academic Integrity: Faculty and students must observe the ULM published policy on Academic Dishonesty available at http://www.ulm.edu/studentpolicy/. Plagiarism and cheating are serious offenses and may be punished by failure on exam, paper or project; failure in course; and/or expulsion from the university. E. Course Evaluation Policy: At a minimum, students are expected to complete the on-line course evaluation . F. Student Services: Information about ULM student services, such as Student Success Center (http://www.ulm.edu/cass/), Counseling Center (http://www.ulm.edu/counselingcenter/), Special Needs (http://www.ulm.edu/counselingcenter/special.htm), and Student Health Services , is available at the following Student Services web site http://www.ulm.edu/studentaffairs/. G. Discipline/Course Specific Policies: To allow you the most flexibility in completing projects, all work is available from the beginning of the course. All assignments are due by 11:55 pm Central Standard Time on the date specified in the subsequent table. You can submit any assignments early , and I encourage you to do so. Planning to submit the assignments at least one day early allows you to have time to contact the instructor for clarification on a given assignment if needed and still have time to complete the assignment by the due date. You will need to be self-motivated and pro-active in planning your time in order to successfully complete the assignments. If you have a general question, post it to the Ask Betty Cooper Forum so that everyone can see the response. You can choose to subscribe to the forum so that you automatically receive the posts to that forum, or just check periodically for new posts. General announcements will be posted to the main Moodle topic area. Any messages that are of a time critical nature will be posted to the news forum which will send you an email message. Exactly how long it takes to complete the assignments varies from student to student and your experience with computers and MS Office. I check email frequently during the week and at least once a day on the weekend in the evening so that is always a great way to contact me. I will be available for chat via Moodle during office hours. Page 4.
