  • Demonstrate the ability to use database software to create, design and use tables, forms, queries, and reports;

  • Demonstrate Internet use and navigation;

  • Demonstrate the ability to use presentation software to create, design, and exhibit presentations with enhanced features and web tools.

     

    Please answer the following questions based on the BUS 902 transfer course you currently teach or have taught in the past three years. The items included in parentheses are simply suggestions.

 

 

  1. Does the title, Computer Applications and Business Systems Concepts, accurately reflect what you teach? What name would you prefer? (i.e. Computer Applications and Concepts)

  2. Does the course description accurately reflect what you teach? What should be modified?
