  • Overview
    • CS 1400 is an introduction to computer programming
    • It is assumed that you are computer literate
    • You can install software, create zip files, manage a directory
    • This is not a self-paced course. You are expected to keep up with
    the published schedule.
    • You should plan on spending 6-8 hours a week on this class.
    • Office hours are by appointment only. I do not keep regular hours in the summer.
    • Let me know if you have a question or a concern.
  • Course Web Site
    All of the material for this course is on the course web site

    You can go directly to Blackboard at http://online.uen.org
  • Use Blackboard to
    * Submit assignments
    * Check for announcements
    * See your grades
  • Submitting an Assignment

    Instructions here
    Put all of the files
    required for an
    assignment into a
    zip file. Add the zip
    file as an attachment

    to submit
  • Make a Mistake?
    Occasionally students make a mistake when submitting
    their homework to Blackboard. Once you submit to
    Blackboard there is no way to retrieve your assignment
    and resubmit it. If you ever need to have your assignment
    returned so that you can resubmit it, send me an email.
  • The Forum
    A forum or discussion board is provided as a means
    for students to answer questions and help one
    another with problems that come up in class.
    Participation points are awarded for students who
    are active on the forum.
    Please take a minute to read the forum instructions.
    then register on the forum and post a note about

  • Course Materials
    The book for this course is available in the bookstore.
  • You will also need a dependable computer
    that is capable of running the latest version
    of Microsoft’s Visual C# Compiler.
    Instructions for downloading, installing,
    and customizing the compiler are contained
    in the first lab assignment.
  • Lab Assignments
    This course includes a number of lab assignments. Each lab
    assignment includes additional study material and work that
    is to be turned in on Blackboard.
    Most weeks there will be two lab assignments to complete.
    Labs are due no later than 1:00 am on the morning of the
    day specified on the schedule page. Lab assignments must be
    submitted on time. No late lab assignments will be accepted.
    Each lab is worth five points.
  • Programming Projects
    Most weeks you will have a programming project to complete.
    Completed programming projects are submitted on Blackboard.
    Projects are due no later than 1:00 am on the morning of the
    day specified on the schedule page. Projects may be submitted
    up to 4 days late, but will be docked 20% for each day that they
    are late.
    Projects can be turned in early for extra credit.
    Each project is worth thirty-five points.
  • Style Guide
    During the course of the semester you will learn
    important elements of good programming style.
    A style guide is available on the course web site.
    Programs that do not meet the style guidelines may
    be returned for corrections or points may be deducted
    from your score.
    You cannot earn points for submitting a program
    early if the program does not meet the style
  • Submitting Assignments Early
    When you submit an assignment early, I will try to review
    your assignment when it is submitted to Blackboard and
    give you feedback so that you can fix any errors and resubmit
    your assignment before the due date.
    Note that I do not review homework on Sundays. On Saturdays
    I will usually check Blackboard once in the morning and that’s all.
    There may be days here and there when I don’t have access to the
    Internet and won’t be able to get feedback to you, but I will do the
    best that I can.
  • Grading
    Every lab and programming project includes a grade sheet
    that describes how points for that assignment will be awarded.
    Read all of the instructions carefully and make sure that your program meets all of the specifications.
    Some projects
    have extra credit
  • Grading (continued)
    The most that you can earn on an assignment that does not
    include a working executable program is 50% of the points
    For a programming project to receive the early bonus, it must
    * be turned at least 24 hours before the due date and time
    * work completely as described in the problem specification
    * meet all of the project requirements
    * meet the style guidelines
  • Exams
    There will be three exams in this class. All exams will
    be given in the classroom testing center on campus.
    If you are unable to come to the main campus to take
    your exams, you may make arrangements with the
    distance education office to have your exams proctored
    at another location.
    Your exam scores constitute about 1/3 of your final grade.
    You must pass the final exam in order to pass this course.
  • Withdrawing From Class
    Occasionally life events happen that make it impossible to
    complete the course. If you feel that you cannot complete
    the course for any reason, take the time to formally withdraw.
    If you just stop participating in the class, but do not withdraw,
    you will receive a grade based on the points you have earned
    in the course – this may be an E.
    The University’s web site contains a calendar that lists the
    last day you can drop a class without it appearing on your
    transcript, and the last day that you can withdraw from a
    class. Withdrawals after this date are not allowed without
    Adequate documentation of extenuating circumstances.
  • Honesty
    Cheating of any kind will not be tolerated. This includes
    copying assignments from other students. If I find that a
    program has been copied, you and the person that you copied
    from will receive a zero on that assignment.
    To help remind you of this, every program that you submit must
    include a statement that you did not copy any code, and that you
    understand that you will receive a zero if you are found in
    violation of this policy.
    Programs that do not contain this declaration may be returned
    to you without being graded.
  • I hope that you enjoy the semester, and that
    you find this course worthwhile. Good luck, and
