Welcome to the course! The majority of you are coming from LIS-5362 , so this is mostly a "welcome back," and I hope you'll also stick around for LIS5367. If you are not taking these courses in this order, AND you are a relative newcomer to front-and and back-end web work, please contact me so I can ensure that we're all up to speed.
Note that the course is administered MAINLY here at jrm4.com. Here you will find readings and schedules, and anything else that is suitable for public viewing.
Canvas will be used for announcements and assignments. Contacting me should only be done through regular email, at email@example.com (I have piloted Canvas Conversations and determined that it is not worth the trouble. Regular email is both required and more beneficial overall, so we will keep it simple and only use that, you should probably do the same for your other courses unless your professor suggests otherwise.)
Collaborate Ultra will be used for our in-class sessions. Any of the modern browsers should work fine for this, though, as always, I recommend Firefox, because it is the only major browser whose ultimate purpose is to help users, not to extract personal data and information from users for profit.
There will be other requirements, computer-wise, but I will detail those in class. See you then!
