Preparing for MIS2402

Here are some things that you can be doing to prepare for MIS2402.  I highly recommend doing all (or at least some) of these things before the semester starts!

  1. Read the syllabus.  It can be found on the “Syllabus” tab of this blog.
  2. Buy the textbook.  See the syllabus for the title, author, and ISBN of the textbook.  I recommend reading chapters 1 and 2.
  3. Install the class software on your own computer.  The software is free.  Installation instructions can be found on the “links” panel of this blog.
    • Windows PC users should install VS Code and Bitvise
    • Mac OS users should install VS Code and FileZilla.  Please note – while either platform can be used successfully in this class, most exercises and challenges are written with Windows PC screenshots and terminology.
  4. Sign in to http://lynda.temple.edu and watch the videos that will be assigned to you in the first two weeks of the semester.  The videos to watch are:
    • HTML Essential Training with James Williamson
    • HTML & CSS: Creating Forms with Clarissa Peterson

Everything you do now will help you get off to a good start this coming semester.

I’m looking forward to meet you in the class!


Prof. Bauman
