ITE 170 Schedule - Section 004,006N - Fall 2012

Last revised: December 5, 2012

The schedule will be updated with links to homework exercises and additional material as the course progresses.  The order of topics within Dreamweaver and Flash is likely to be different than shown below (in the January version of the schedule) due to the change in texts but the topic coverage should be similar. The most current copy of this schedule can be found www.billpegram.com. Material, including quiz dates, below the X below is tentative; students should not work on assignments shown below the X since the assigment will likely change.
