Sections PT1 & T01

Welcome to the website for CS101 Sections PT1 and T01. This is an online course section for students enrolled at the WVU Institute of Technology in Beckley. 

You should plan to check your MIX e-mail account and visit this webpage daily to remain up-to-date on important information in the course.

New to the course?

Get started with Computer Science 101 by visiting the Start Here page. Learn out about your instructor on the Instructor Welcome & Contact Information page.


Homework # 5 Available

The final HW assignment is now posted on our course webpage.  Note this assignment will result in four completed files (one for each Office application we cover in this course).  These need to be submitted separately, as opposed to all at once in a ZIP file.

Homework # 4 Available

You need to start working on Homework # 4 now. If you wait until a day or two before the assignment is due, you will be overwhelmed and it will be difficult for us to provide you assistance. You should begin working on the assignment ASAP if you haven’t already.

Homework # 3 Available

HW # 3 is now available.  Since this is the first Access assignment and most people find Access to be the most difficult part of this course, I strongly advise starting on it early.

Please take a look at the schedule to see what I think you should be reading and working on today. Refer to the schedule each day and try to keep up with the suggested readings.

We do not use eCampus or the attendance system

CS101 does not use eCampus. Please be sure to check your MIX e-mail and visit the CS101 website on a daily basis.

Our online section also does not use the attendance system.

Using a Mac

If you own a Mac, you have two methods to use for completing assignments in this course:

1. Windows Virtual Desktop: Using this method, there is nothing to install locally but you must have reliable internet access while you use it.  Details about this are available from this page. This is the easier/preferred method to use for most students.

2. Downloading/installing a virtual machine: This allows you to run Windows and Office to do your assignments in this class. Please see this Help Page for more details.

Assignment Availability

Assignments in this class will be configured well ahead of time to give you plenty of time to work on them.  I encourage working ahead!
