NOTE SPECIAL SCHEDULING: The complete course will be comprised of three live, web-based sessions. The first session of the course begins on Day One at the scheduled time and runs for 4 hours. The second and third session will follow on the next two days at the same scheduled time for 4 hours each. The class consists of approximately 40% lecture and 60% programming exercises.
Overview of the technical setup:
1. You'll be looking at two computer screens and listening on the phone. This means you need 2 computers, or else a computer with dual monitors. One screen displays the WebEx presentation. The other screen is the "Virtual Machine".
2. The "Virtual Machine" is simply a PC that you remotely control from your own computer. The instructor can also see the screen of each of these Virtual Machine PCs and assist you during exercises as needed.
3. You'll call in on the phone to a WebEx conference call in order to communicate with the instructor.
You will be given detailed instructions for testing the virtual machine 1-2 days before class starts.
