Course Details

If you want to learn computer programming but don't have any prior experience, you'll enjoy a tour of Java, one of the most widely used computer languages in the world. It's a breeze to learn in a friendly and supportive environment.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01
Java is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world, on machines from microprocessors in DVRs and microwaves to supercomputers. This lesson will introduce you to computer programming in general and to Java in particular. I'll get you set up with the downloads and installations you'll need for the rest of the course, and I'll walk you through the process of editing, compiling, and running computer programs written in Java.

- Lesson 02

Now that you have the software downloaded and installed, you're ready to start programming! Today you'll write your first Java program. Along the way, you'll learn to create projects and classes in BlueJ. You'll use the editor to enter your program, and you'll find out more about how to compile it and run it. We'll also look at some of the basics of Java syntax (or form), some of its naming conventions, and its basic data types.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

This lesson is about Java's primitive data types—the building blocks you need to use before you can build more complex types. I'll show you how to use them in some simple programs, and we'll look at how they relate to each other. Beyond that, we'll look at how to use a few of the classes in the Java libraries.

 Lesson 04

This lesson introduces classes and objects. We'll revisit the HelloWorld application and rewrite it in Java's OOP (object-oriented programming) structure. While we're doing that, we'll look at how to declare classes, objects, attributes, and methods to Java.

Week Three

Lesson 05

Today we'll go over how to declare our data variables to Java and how to use variables in arithmetic expressions to calculate new results. We'll also talk about data input, which means getting information into our programs from an outside source. Then we'll write a program that incorporates all these features.

 Lesson 06

Making decisions is one of the most important and powerful things a computer language can do. Without decision-making, computers would be big, bulky calculators. We're going to look at the decision-making process in detail and see how Java does it. When you're done with this lesson, you'll know how to write Java programs that make decisions based on the principles of computer logic.

Week Four

  Lesson 07

In this lesson, you'll learn to repeat actions using a control structure called a loop. Loops in Java involve decisions, just as branches do. But in a loop structure, if the condition is met, the branch is backward instead of forward, allowing us to repeat actions. We'll also finish our temperature program.

 Lesson 08

Today we'll discuss how Java generates exceptions and how we can prevent them from crashing our programs. We'll also look class methods and how to call them without creating any objects. Last, you'll find out about a debugger, which lets us look at what's going on inside our program as it runs.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

This lesson is a grab bag of tools and topics. BlueJ's debugger lets you watch your program's internal actions as it runs. Enumeration lets you set up new data types with built-in limits on their values. Finally, Java's switch structure lets you replace a series of nested if statements with a single value-based structure. You'll find all these items useful in future programming!

- Lesson 10

How can you make numbers and other output look the way you want them to in Java? In today's lesson, I'll show you. We'll also look at Java's application program interface(API). That's the documentation of all the classes that Java includes when you install the JDK, plus explanations of how to use them. The interface has several thousand classes, and it's important to know how to find things within it.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

So far in this course, everything has been text-based. Today I'll introduce you to the world of Java windows, and we'll begin to look at GUI (graphical user interface) programming in Java. We'll look at the basic components of a Java window and then add some simple graphics to it.

 Lesson 12

In our final lesson together, we'll continue our short exploration of Java 2-D graphics with a look at some simple animation. We'll use the same technique cartoonists have used for a hundred years now: redrawing an image in a slightly different location and repeating that process many times a second so the image appears to move. You'll learn to create a self-contained object that "knows" its own size, color, shape, location, and how to draw itself into our window. This is a fun lesson.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

With enough practice, most Excel users quickly become adept at organizing their worksheets across two dimensions: rows and columns. But only a select few will learn how to take their worksheets into the third dimension. Today, you'll join that exclusive group. Prepare to have your socks knocked off as you gain hands-on experience in the construction of three-dimensional workbooks.

Lesson 06

No, Excel course would be complete without a discussion of Excel's amazing data-crunching capabilities. Today, you'll not only learn how to build a table in Excel, you'll also learn how to subtotal, sort, and filter.

Week Five

Lesson 09

Excel includes many powerful functions that can automatically perform some very complicated tasks for you. In today's lesson, you'll learn some very interesting ways to put these functions to work for you. You'll find out how to ask Excel to magically derive averages, modes, maximums, minimums, and other useful statistics from nothing more than a column or two of numbers.

Lesson 10

We'll continue our exploration of Excel functions with an in-depth look at Excel's handy financial functions today. By the time this lesson is over, you'll be able to figure out how much money you'll have when you retire when your kids reach college, or just before your next vacation. You'll be able to calculate the monthly payment on just about any type of loan, and you'll know how to figure out how long it will take to pay off your credit cards. You'll even create an amortization table of your very own, just like the one lenders use to track a loan's payoff amount over time.

Week Six

Lesson 11

Students often rank this lesson as one of their favorites. Today, you'll find out how to automate just about any task you find tedious or time-consuming. You'll discover how to move your most frequently used commands from their present, obscure locations to a much more convenient place: the toolbar that's always perched at the very top of your screen. You'll also learn how you can use macros to reduce just about any complex task to a single keystroke.

Lesson 12

I think you'll be intrigued by our final lesson, in which you'll learn how to use Excel to aid you in decision making. We'll use a special function in Excel that allows it to make comparisons and use those comparisons as the basis for important decisions.

Course Details

Take control of your data! In this course, you'll learn how to harness the power of Microsoft Access 2013 to organize, store, edit, manage, and report on hundreds of thousands of records.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

In this lesson, you'll find out what Access is and how individuals, businesses, and organizations use it to store information. You'll begin to build an Access database . . . including all the components that turn a list of records into reports, forms, and queries. We'll start by opening the application and creating a new database.

Lesson 02

It's time to lay down the law! Today you'll impose rules that automatically fill an Access table field with a preset value or that automatically insert the symbols commonly included in phone numbers. Also, you'll set up rules that require allowing only certain kinds of data in certain fields. With just a few minutes of work, you can make data entry simpler, clearer, and practically error-free.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Today you'll create additional tables for our class database, customizing them along the way, and then build relationships between them. This all paves the way for later database features, such as reports, queries, and forms that draw from multiple tables in the database.

 Lesson 04

In this lesson, you'll use forms for data entry and for viewing records in your tables. You'll meet the Form Wizard, which makes form building fast and easy and which allows you to select one or more tables' fields to include. You'll also determine form layout.

Week Three

Lesson 05

In this lesson, you'll add buttons and controls to forms. You'll also adjust table relationships to support the creation of multi-table forms . . . which paves the way to creating queries and reports that draw data from more than one table.

 Lesson 06

Using queries to sort, filter, and search your database is one of the most important skills you'll master in this course. In this lesson, you'll create queries that search for specific data. You'll also customize how Access displays that data. You'll follow the instructions step by step so you gain confidence with the process; then I'll turn you loose to create a query on your own.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

A query that puts specific records in order or finds all the records that have a general piece of information in common is, well, pretty common. Being able to create that kind of query is a great foundation skill, but it won't help you find a very specific record. Nor will it let you search for records within a span of dates or other numeric values. It also won't help you exclude certain records, reducing a large pool of data to just those records you need to see. In this lesson, you'll create queries that give you a true power to search your database.

 Lesson 08

In this lesson, you'll learn to plan, build, and use queries that pull data from more than one table at a time. This gives you more power over your data and allows you to build a great foundation for truly customized reports.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Reports are easy to create and to customize. In this lesson, you'll build a simple report using the Report Wizard. Then you'll change the report's appearance, using layout view and design view. These skills provide the foundation to create and design any report you may need on any data in your database.

 Lesson 10

In this lesson, you'll create reports that are based on the results of queries you create to sort and filter your database. Because queries can combine data from multiple tables, filter for specific data, and sort the results, your report reflects just the data that meet the query's criteria. This makes truly customized reporting possible—and quite simple.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

In this lesson, you'll plan and create a completely customized report, using a specialized query that controls which data the report includes. You'll add fields that perform calculations on your data. You'll customize your report's layout, too, using design view's many tools for controlling the structure and appearance of your data.

 Lesson 12

Building macros (short programs that perform a series of steps) helps you speed up and create consistency in your more repetitive Access tasks. From opening a form to running a report to building a new record in a table, macros eliminate redundant procedures by turning them into something you can do with one click.

Course Details

If you want to get a job as a graphic artist, you need to learn Adobe Illustrator. In this course, you'll see how Adobe Illustrator CS6 can give you the power to design, draw, and color images quickly and easily.

Topics Covered

Week One

Lesson 01

Even if you're an absolute beginner, you'll feel right at home after we spend this first lesson touring Adobe Illustrator CS6's work area, toolbox, and panels. We'll jump right into some of Illustrator's fun features by auto-tracing a drawing, turning parts of it into a Live Paint Object (think of a digital coloring book), and recoloring it. As you meet each new feature, you'll learn more about what it is and what it does.

 Lesson 02

Today you'll discover Illustrator's shape tools, which are the first step on your gentle journey toward using the all-important Pen tool. Get ready to draw shapes and combine them to form illustrations.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Now that you've learned to create shapes, it's time to start playing with color. In today's lesson, you'll discover how to create your own colors, save them, and apply them. You'll also learn about the fabulous Recolor Artwork command and see how you can create and save color harmonies. After this lesson, you'll have a consultant that's always there to advise you on what colors work together.

 Lesson 04

Illustrator's magic comes from the anchor points that control all the shapes in an image. Today you'll learn to alter the anchor points on geometric objects and previously created shapes, so you can mold the results into something new.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

The Pen tool is the basic instrument for creating vector art, and today you'll learn to use it. You already know what corner points and smooth points are and how to edit them; now you'll learn how to create them with the Pen tool as you trace over a template. You can do all your editing with the Pen tool once you understand its features . . . and you'll discover all the tricks today.

 Lesson 06

Now that you know how to trace and flip symmetrical objects, it's time to try your new skills with more challenging images. Not all images are symmetrical, and not all images consist of only one object. You need to learn how to track multiple objects in one image and manage the Layers panel as you lock and unlock layers. You'll also learn a suggested workflow for tracking and simplifying photographic content in Illustrator.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

The Appearance panel is your central monitoring station for making changes to fills, strokes, and effects. Today you'll learn to create strokes that look hand-drawn or have varying widths—even when you're using a mouse. You'll apply multiple strokes and fills to objects and create Illustrator effects that you can change at any time.

Lesson 08

Gradients are Illustrator's version of an airbrush that can lay down smooth blends of color. You can use gradients on objects (shapes) for backgrounds or for shading. Once you know how to create your own gradients, you can add realism to any image.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

One of the key problems for Illustrator users is getting realistic shading into vector objects. The Gradient tool helps, but it has limitations. In the lesson, you'll create realistic blends, use a gradient mesh, and use gradients on strokes rather than on objects to create some amazing effects.

 Lesson 10

Did you know that you can change any set of objects (even an embedded raster image) into a symbol? And once you have a symbol, you can apply it to any drawing you want with a single click. This process makes your image reusable and saves storage space. Today you'll create stroke gradient curls to finish the work from Lesson 9, which will show you how turning the object into a symbol can speed up Illustrator's performance. You'll also use symbols to decorate 3-D objects.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Patterns are everywhere you look—from the tissue box on your desk to your favorite flannel pj's. And Illustrator CS6's pattern design engine is its most exciting new feature. Now Illustrator makes it easy to create complex patterns without detailed knowledge of pattern design. And even more important—it's incredibly fun! Just like when you're eating peanuts, you won't want to stop. You'll continue the fun by using the patterns as the basis for pattern brushes.

 Lesson 12

What font would you use to create type that looks like it belongs to Marilyn Monroe? Today you'll explore the basics of typography while you learn to use the Type tool. You'll discover how to fill a shape with text and how to flow text along paths and around shapes.

Course Details

What you don't know about PC security really can hurt you! Learn why you're at risk and what you can do to protect your precious personal and business data from the outside world. This course, taught by a security expert, will quickly bring you up to speed on the fundamentals of PC and network security.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

In our first lesson, you'll learn the facts--and the myths--about PC security. Then, I'll introduce you to the language of security and explain what you need to know about each acronym. By the end of this lesson, you'll also be able to assess your own risk, whether you're an individual or manage a network of any size. You'll also perform a self-assessment to evaluate just how vulnerable you are to security flaws.

 Lesson 02

If you ever wondered what technical gurus are speaking about when they talk about LANs, WANs, VPNs, and P2P, you'll find detailed answers in this lesson. Discover the basics of networks and how your PC connects to them.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Most of us don't stop to think about how a Mac can talk to a PC and vice versa. Yet, different types of machines talk to each other on a daily basis across networks. They also talk to printers, fax machines, and a host of other devices. The OSI model for network connections lets you accomplish this, and you'll learn all about it in this lesson. I'll also teach you how, why, and where the weak links of security are in software and operating systems.

 Lesson 04

Get ready to investigate the world of viruses, worms, and blended threats. You'll learn what they are and the differences between all three. I'll also show you why people create them and where they come from. Of course, all this knowledge will also teach you how to protect yourself and your network from the hackers and crackers of the world.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

We’ll introduce you to the ware family in this lesson. Who is the ware family? They are the products that download themselves onto your computer without your consent or knowledge—spyware, scumware, malware, and adware. You'll meet them and learn all about their family traits and values. I'll also show you where they live, places they frequent, and how to remove these unwelcome guests that inhabit your PC.

 Lesson 06

You may have heard of them: vulnerabilities, exploits, and exposure. But what are they? Have you ever wondered if someone really can control your computer without your knowledge? If you've been pondering these questions lately, then you'll find your answers here, along with priceless information on protecting your computer and your network to keep your business and personal data private.

 Lesson 07

Have you ever tried to access the Web but received an error saying the page can't be displayed, you aren't connected, or you don't have access? If so, you may have been under an attack! Denial of Service attacks and SYN flooding are two types of network attacks that seem to go unnoticed on personal PCs and small networks. Why? Because beginners don't know what they are, why they're happening, or where they're coming from. After this lesson, you'll no longer be left wondering what happened to your Internet connection.

 Lesson 08

This lesson will introduce you to firewalls. Join me in this lesson, and you'll soon start building an impenetrable moat around your network.

 Lesson 09

Now that you have your moat built, it's time to arm up and defend yourself. In this lesson, you'll learn how to configure your firewall and maximize your network security.

 Lesson 10

You may want to check out this lesson before you grab your laptop and run off to the next Internet café because what you learn today may surprise you! Laptops and wireless connectivity are the buzzwords of the moment, but these two technologies aren't as secure as they appear. You'll understand why in this lesson.

 Lesson 11

I'm going to share my love for VPNs with you today. You'll learn what a Virtual Private Network is, how it's different from standard networks, how it works, how to secure it, and how to set up your own. Just think about the possibilities! You can share files with family across the miles by allowing them to connect remotely to your designated shared folders. You can share music files, family pictures, and anything else you choose to give them access to.

Lesson 12

Now that you know what's out there, how can you possibly keep on top of security issues? There's so much information out there, how will you know what applies to you? Have no fear, for I'll show you a simple method for staying up-to-date with those security issues that only pertain to you. You'll also learn about emerging security technology, sources to use that will help make the job of managing and securing your network easier, and creating a checklist to keep handy. Finally, you can test yourself against the first security assessment to see how well you've secured your own PC or network.

Course Details

What is the cloud? If you have trouble answering this question, you're not alone. In this course, we'll explore how the cloud works, what drives its incredible growth, and how you can use cloud services. And don't worry if you're not tech-savvy! We'll relate the cloud to things you encounter every day, using practical, non-technical language.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

Confused about the cloud? You're in the right place! In this first lesson, we'll clear up some confusion and start with the basics. I'll explain the building blocks of the cloud, and that will lead us to a durable definition of the cloud that you'll use as a foundation for the rest of the course. We'll also discuss what the cloud means to you, its impact on your life, and why it'll be helpful for you to understand how it works.

 Lesson 02

So how did the cloud get started? In this lesson, you'll learn the history of the cloud and how it was a natural evolution of networked computers and Internet connectivity. We'll also discuss why the cloud is so important, and we'll look at the business challenges and opportunities that the cloud addresses. By the end of this lesson, you'll have a solid understanding of how we got to where we are and how business computing operated before the cloud.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Ever wonder why some people believe the cloud is simple while others believe it's complex? In this lesson, you'll learn why they're both right—and you'll learn how to think about the cloud from two perspectives. We'll also discuss the different types of clouds: public, private, and hybrid. And you'll get a glimpse inside the big business technology world and find out why the cloud can be such a compelling move for large organizations.

Friday - Lesson 04

What's the difference between the cloud and a collection of computers? A bunch—and much of that comes down to virtualization. In this lesson, you'll learn what virtualization is and why it's so fundamental in how the cloud operates. We'll also discuss scale and how it relates to virtualization. Finally, you'll see how endpoints make all the connections work. Let's get started!

Week Three

 Lesson 05

If you'll recall, services are one of the five building blocks in our definition of the cloud. In this lesson, we'll look at those services. Specifically, we'll discuss three categories of cloud services: infrastructure (or Infrastructure as a Service, or IaaS), platforms (or Platform as a Service, or PaaS), and software (or Software as a Service, or SaaS). We'll discuss how these three categories compare and individuals and business can take advantage of them.

Friday - Lesson 06

All the computing power of the cloud needs to live somewhere, and it's not in the atmosphere. In this lesson, you'll learn all about data centers—how they operate, what they look like, where they're located, and what makes them tick. You'll also learn what makes one data center more efficient than another, and you'll get perspective on what it costs to make them operate. It's a fascinating tour, with a lot to learn and even more to explore, so let's jump in!

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

Our experience in the cloud includes the storing and transmission of data, either across the hall or across the world. In this lesson, you'll understand how to think about data in terms of its importance in the cloud, and you'll also learn why we often leave worrying about data to someone else. We'll discuss how all the data in the cloud moves across continents, across the ocean, and over airwaves. And we'll also look at a clear definition of big data in this lesson, as well as examples of where big data may be headed.

Friday - Lesson 08

Making sense of how cloud providers offer their services is an important step in truly understanding the cloud. In this lesson, you'll see how a well-established cloud provider organizes and presents its offerings. We'll go through each group of the cloud provider's offered services, and we'll map them to what you've already learned about the cloud and the categories you're familiar with.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

In this lesson, you'll learn where websites fit into the cloud and what other elements, offerings or activities are driving the adoption and popularity of the cloud and its varied services. We'll also discuss what it means to be a big provider, and we'll examine the largest platforms—and largest overall service providers—that are in the cloud today.

 Lesson 10

Learn about what goes into creating a cloud app, and how the three (plus one) ecosystems dominate the world of cloud applications. In this lesson, you also learn about the different types of devices, how they are categorized, and how they align to the types of cloud apps that are available. You'll also learn about ecosystems, and why they define how cloud apps are created, distributed, and sold.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Today we're going to look at how social network sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter work in the cloud and how users and organizations can create apps that connect with their huge base of users. You'll learn how social media sites let software developers interact with their sites, create apps and games that operate within and outside their sites, and why they do this. Also, you'll learn about social media tools on Facebook and in Twitter, including why the hashtag was created (#), how it's used, and how to use these sites yourself.

 Lesson 12

This lesson ties together everything you've learned in this course. You'll learn how we can view the cloud from two primary perspectives—consumer and business—and we'll distil the primary benefits (and drivers) that have propelled cloud adoption from participants of both perspectives. We'll also discuss where these two perspectives share a common, clear force that continues to be the biggest benefit of the cloud. And finally, we'll look into the future of what the cloud may hold and what that future might mean for each of us.

Are you ready to improve your skills and learn some new ones? After you review the z, y, x, q, v, quotation mark, and CAPS LOCK keys, you'll learn the reaches to the numbers 1 and 8. Then you'll take timed writings in the Key Pro 5 word processor.

 Lesson 10

What's the difference between the DELETE key, the BACKSPACE key, and the Cut command? By the end of this lesson, you'll understand how and when to use these three editing tools. You'll also continue to improve your skills with the alphabetic keys, plus you'll learn number reaches: 5, 0, 2, and 7.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

When should you spell out numbers (like this: one, nine, five hundred), and when should you write them as figures (1, 9, 500)? I'll explain in this lesson. You'll also continue to improve your skills with the keys you've already learned, and you'll finish the number reaches by mastering 4, 9, 3, and 6. Then you’ll learn two symbol reaches: the dollar sign ($) and the hyphen (-).

Lesson 12

You've already mastered some of the symbols and punctuation marks. Today, in our last lesson together, you'll meet the rest of the symbols. You'll also work on your accuracy and speed with the Key Pro 5 Skill Building lessons. And you'll find out how you can continue to hone your keyboarding skills long after you've finished this course!

Course Details

Is your Web content as effective as it could be? Would you like more visitors—more sales—and better search rankings? In this course, you'll gain tips for crafting content to make your website or blog into an exciting multimedia place for visitors.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

There's Web content on just about any topic you can imagine. While the topics and purposes of the content may all be different, the writing strategies you need to know to create effective content are all very similar. In our first lesson, we're going to identify the three key areas you need to understand to make your content effective, whether you want to sell, entertain or do something else altogether. You'll also find out about a free tool you can use to learn what people on the Web are actually looking for!

Lesson 02

All writing comes from ideas, so that's where we're going to start this lesson. I'll show you how to bring focus to your ideas using a free, Web-based tool. Then, we'll examine the inverted pyramid writing style and see how and why you should bring the focus of your content to the top of the Web page. We'll also look at lots of examples of different types of Web content, and we'll examine how we can focus the content and use the inverted pyramid to get the most important information out right up front! Of course, if we want to attract lots of readers to our content, it also needs to be entertaining. So we'll look at some strategies to help you accomplish that too.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Organizing Web content is easier than you might think—and it all starts with an outline. If you've dreaded outlining in the past, not to worry. I'll show you some quick tips for making outlining as simple as A, B, C. We'll also look at how headings can help you organize content and chunk information for your readers. Surfers like to scan content for information, whether they're looking for product guides on your business site or the opposing sides of a debate on your blog—and writing effective headings can not only keep readers on your site but also help them find what they want. That's a win for everybody, isn't it? Finally, we'll talk about bulleted lists and when and how you should use them to group information for your readers!

 Lesson 04

We're going to focus on writing content that's easy to understand in this lesson. We often call this type of writing a plain language. I'll help you identify the "fluff" in your writing, or the words and phrases that don't add anything but unnecessary word count. The advantage of keeping your writing easy-to-read is that your visitors will understand your message the first time they read it, whether you're talking about your business or a favorite subject on your blog. I'll share some free tools that will tell you how easy your content is to read—and even what grade level it's suited to. And we'll also discuss the indexes and scales the tools use to analyze your writing, so you'll know what the results mean.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

Do you have products you want to sell? Would you like to know some surefire ways to get more followers for your blog? Are you focused on public awareness for your cause? If you're looking to persuade your readers to a specific course of action, then you'll find this lesson particularly useful. Today, we'll discuss the ins and outs of writing content aimed at persuading readers. You'll find out how to reel in readers using power words and how to keep the search engines on your side with keywords. We'll also talk about the importance of honesty in your writing and how to check for that as you compose your copy. Ready? Let's call those readers to action!

 Lesson 06

The modern Web is often called the social Web—it's a Web where being connected matters a lot. And because connection and online relationships are so important to readers, this is something you'll want to pay attention to. Today we'll look at ways you can build relationships whether your readers are customers or followers or just interested in what you have to share. We'll talk about the importance of the word you, something salespeople have known for years! And we'll also look at how to create content that engages readers in a conversation—and also the power of positive language.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Songbirds aren't the only things that tweet! You'll enjoy this exciting journey through the wonderful world of blogs, from personal blogs to content blogs to microblogs like Twitter. In this modern world of social networking, blogging is much more than a way to reflect on your day-to-day life. Blogs, whether long or short, are rapidly becoming an integral part of every business's marketing plan. Research shows that Web readers trust bloggers more than advertising—in fact, 60% of surfers say they feel more positive about a company after reading blog content on its website. This lesson examines what makes an effective blog, and we'll also look at the ever-expanding world of short blogging tools!

Lesson 08

Driving down any busy city street shows us that we live in a visual world. From neon lights to enormous flashing billboards, we find our attention drawn in dozens of different directions. The same is true on the Web. Text just doesn't do it anymore, no matter how well you've written it. Web readers expect pizzazz! And that's just what we'll be talking about in this lesson. We'll discuss how to find free visuals and multimedia elements on the Web and how to effectively use these elements to enhance your content.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Want to add some pizzazz to your Web content? Today we'll explore different types of multimedia that you can include on your Web pages, such as screencasts, slideshows, and videos—and we'll look at how to create educational content using these media. Tutorials are a terrific way to draw in new visitors, no matter what multimedia format you choose. You'll learn how to create tutorials for your blog or website, writing scripts, creating storyboards, and adding screen captures for illustrations.

 Lesson 10

Customer service is easy if you use polls, surveys, and quizzes effectively with your Web content. Plus, these tools can also help you develop relationships with your visitors by learning more about them. Even if surfers leave comments on your blog or website, a poll or survey can help you understand more about their thoughts and needs. Not sure how to write a poll, survey, or quiz? That's what this lesson is all about. Not only that, I'll introduce you to services that let you add free quiz activities to your Web content to give your readers more reasons to visit regularly.

Week Six

Lesson 11

Whether your Web content is how you make your living or how you have fun, it's important to know how to protect it from theft. And it's also a good idea to make sure you understand what content you can legally reuse on the Web. Today we'll explore intellectual property laws—specifically copyright and trademark laws—and how they apply to your online content.

Lesson 12

For this final lesson, we're going to step away from content creation and take a look at three important areas that readers use to place a value on your content. I'll help you identify some of the most common writing errors—and give you tips on how to be sure you've got them right! Of course, the final thing your content needs is a title, so we'll take a look at how to write some great ones. And then I'll guide you through the process a reader takes to evaluate your Web content, which will help you ensure that yours measures up. Once we've finished, you'll be confident you've covered everything it takes to create effective Web content!

Course Details

Enhance your résumé by adding Python to your programming skills! The Python programming language was developed to provide a way to develop code that's easy to create and understand. While Python contains the same basic structures as other languages, it also offers unique functionality that makes your life as a programmer easier.

Topics Covered

Week One

Lesson 01

Two things that make Python attractive are that it's a free download and that it comes with a free development environment, IDLE. In our first lesson, we'll start off right by going on a brief tour of both the language and the environment. You'll see that with IDLE, you can either execute individual statements directly at the interpreter's prompt or save your commands in a program file to be run later. By the end of Lesson 1, you'll be fully prepared to work in IDLE using either method.

 Lesson 02

Programs aren't terribly useful unless you have some way to store values in memory. In Lesson 2, you'll get up to speed with Python variables, and then you'll learn how to use these variables to get input from the user. With this, you'll be able to write Python code to make your programs interactive, making them more useful and a lot more interesting.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

There are many times when you'll want one set of statements run in one situation and another set run in a different situation. For that, you'll need to use Python's if decision structure. In Lesson 3, you'll practice with Python's if syntax and learn how to write both simple and complex conditions to select which statements should be run.

 Lesson 04

Keeping with the theme of programming structures, today's lesson is all about the repetition structure. You'll learn how to write both whites and for loops in Python so that your statements can be repeated over and over until some condition is met. You'll also learn some looping features that are unique to Python that help to make your programs more powerful.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

Modular programming gives you the ability to write code once, give it a name and then call it by name at a later time. In Lesson 5, you'll learn how to write modular programs by creating functions. You'll also learn how to pass data into the functions and then to return values back, building on this knowledge as you proceed through the course.

 Lesson 06

Building on the concept of modular programming, next we'll explore object-oriented programming. This is a popular technique, and in Lesson 6, you'll get an introduction to how it's done in Python. You'll learn how to create a class definition and place variables and functions inside. Then later, you'll use this class to create some objects and work with them to solve simple problems.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

It's now time to take some of the topics we've covered and apply them to something a little more creative. Today, we'll explore Python graphics, where you'll create and work with simple shapes and even get a chance to write programs that simulate animation so that you can watch your shapes move across the screen.

 Lesson 08

Now that you're comfortable with the decision and repetition structures, as well as ways to organize your code, it's now time to turn to ways of managing your data. In this lesson, we'll look at two of Python's basic data structures: lists and tuples. You'll learn how to create these types of variables and use them to manage data for your programs.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

While lists and tuples are useful structures, they put the burden on you to keep track of your data's position within the structure. However, the dictionary structure gives you the ability to associate a word with each piece of data. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use dictionaries to write useful programs in fewer lines of code that'll execute in a shorter amount of time.

 Lesson 10

Programs that work with data in memory are great. However, it's also important to be able to save the data in a file for later use. In Lesson 10, you'll learn how to read from and write to data files. You'll also learn about Python's shelve feature, which is a database-like file that allows for quick and easy access to large amounts of data.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Let's face it, our programs sometimes encounter problems as they execute. In object-oriented terms, you'd call this an exception. If the exception isn't handled, the program will crash. In this lesson, you'll learn about Python's exceptions and learn how to handle them to keep the program up and running, even when something unexpected happens.

 Lesson 12

You'll finish the course by exercising the creative part of your brain again. This time, you'll learn how to create a graphical user interface (GUI) in Python. You'll learn how to display text with labels and get user data with text boxes, buttons, radio buttons, and checkboxes. Now you'll be able to integrate all the conceptual material that you learned in the course with an attractive, easy to use interface to make for useful, interactive programs.

A number of powerful tools are available to help you build databases and database applications this course will help students to acquire more good knowledge about that.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

Who can benefit from a database? Anyone who needs to store data and later retrieve meaning from that data. In this lesson, you'll see where databases came from, explore the major types and see how the various parts fit together.

 Lesson 02

In this lesson, we'll define and describe the major components of a database system. You'll learn about the System Development Life Cycle, which practically guarantees the success of any database system you produce.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Today, you will learn how important the non-technical portions of a development project are. You'll see why it's not enough to build a system that meets design goals--it also needs to satisfy the people who will use it. You'll learn how to build an Entity-Relationship model that is based on a consensus of what all the stakeholders need.

 Lesson 04

This lesson will teach you how to find out what the client organization really needs from the development project--it may be very different from what they originally asked for! We'll discuss the pros and cons of either upgrading an existing system or building a new one from scratch

 Lesson 05

Relational databases are by far the most commonly used database type today. They're the most likely type of database that you will find yourself designing and using. In this lesson, you'll learn the relational model: how to create relational databases that have the right combination of performance and reliability to meet your needs.

 Lesson 06

This lesson is the pivot point of our course: Today, you will learn how to translate the Entity-Relationship model into a relational model that you can implement directly as a database. A model that accurately describes the system you are modeling is your best guarantee that the system you deliver will perform as you need it to.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Today, we move to the hands-on portion of the course. You will take what you have learned so far to build an actual database, using the popular Microsoft Access database management system. The database will track important information for a fictitious nonprofit organization.

 Lesson 08

In this lesson, you will learn how to build a database with the SQL language--a language that is supported by all relational database management systems. You'll also learn how to protect it from accidental or intentional harm.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Databases store data. That's important, but it's not worth much if you can't pick and choose the information you want to retrieve from the database. Today you will learn how to create a database application that will give users a turnkey tool for retrieving exactly the information they want with a minimum of hassle.

Friday - Lesson 10

It's more important than ever to ensure that your company's organizational data does not fall into the wrong hands. This lesson teaches you how to control who accesses your data. We'll also cover how to protect your data if your hardware fails or if some other unexpected disaster occurs.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

This lesson takes you to the next level--creating sophisticated database applications by combining code written with procedural languages such as Visual Basic or C with SQL statements. We'll go on to discuss how to make databases and database applications available on an organization's network and on the World Wide Web.

Lesson 12

This lesson emphasizes the critically important (but often overlooked) human aspect of a database development project. Your client may not have a clear idea of what they want at the outset of your database project. That means your communication and interpersonal skills are going to be just as important as your technical expertise. After we complete this final piece of the database puzzle, you'll be ready to create database systems that truly meet the needs of your client organization.

Today you'll set up a Google Analytics account, plus you'll create and insert the Google Analytics code to begin tracking traffic on your Web page.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Did that marketing campaign or email blast cause an uptick in site visits? If you set date ranges for your Analytics data, you can track traffic within a certain month, week, day, or even hour. Today you'll also use filters and sorting tools to customize your view of your Google Analytics data, so you can see and understand all the information you need (and ignore the rest).

 Lesson 04

You can use Google Analytics' reporting tools to create your own versions of existing reports—just the information you want when you want it. Today you'll set up report categories and design custom reports from scratch.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

Have you ever overhauled your website or your marketing campaign and then wondered if your changes would even make a difference? Today you'll further customize existing and new reports by adding filters—focusing your report's data on very specific activity by certain visitors to your site. You'll find out how to time your reporting to reflect changes in site traffic attributed to promotional activity, social media, and changes in the site content.

 Lesson 06

This lesson focuses on Google Analytics' Webmaster Tools—from the verification process, through which Google Analytics recognizes your account as belonging to a webmaster, to configuring and viewing webmaster reports. These reports include information on your site's search engine optimization—tracking your efforts to be more friendly to search engines and, therefore, searchable by more people online.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

You'll discover the characteristics and goals of effective control systems and be able to identify the benefits of control. You'll learn the prerequisites to use control, find out how to use steps of the control process, and identify problems with using control. You'll also discover the various types of control techniques.

 Lesson 06

Today's lesson may be the most important one in the course: A highly functional project team and an excellent project manager are critical success factors for any project. Today, you'll learn about a project manager's roles and responsibilities, and also required skills and competencies. To support your project manager, you'll discover the characteristics of a team, see how a team comes together, and find out how to use effective team building activities.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Today, we'll discuss two different sides (deliverables and stakeholders) of the same coin, then you'll develop an understanding of methods that will help you generate excellent ideas to provide project solutions that satisfy expectations. You'll learn how deliverables are prone to change and see how quality function deployment (QFD) identifies and satisfies stakeholder requirements. You'll understand how brainstorming, brainwriting, the nominal group technique, and affinity diagrams lead to excellent project management ideas.

 Lesson 08

As a project manager, you need to practice a high level of business ethics and also be aware of organizational politics. Also, you must be aware of conflict situations and take action to manage conflict at the right time and in the right way. In this lesson, I'll provide an overview of ethics, describe how ethics can be practically applied, and specify how to establish an ethical tone in your organization. You'll learn the nature of organizational politics, understand the nature of a conflict, and find out why some project teams experience more conflict than others. Finally, I'll help you learn how to develop solutions to effectively manage conflict.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Today's lesson is very important. Everything we've discussed so far comes together in this lesson as we form a project plan. Project plans vary in their amount of detail. The project plan that will be presented today has 14 sections. Our project plan will begin with the foundational elements (project strategy, executive summary, statement of work, work breakdown structure, and project schedules), continue through supporting elements (human resource plans, procurement plans, interface plans, and configuration management plans), and conclude with controlling elements (work control plans, quality control plans, cost control plans, risk management plans, and reporting plans).

Lesson 10

Earlier in the course, you learned about the basic ingredients associated with project implementation. In this lesson, we'll expand upon these fundamental elements so you can successfully implement your project plan. We'll start off by identifying areas that will jumpstart your project into action including key factors for a successful project, the power of using a pilot, use of work packages, setup of project accounts, and holding a project kickoff meeting. Next, we'll explore the interpersonal aspects of project execution including empowering your project team, creating team rules, using effective communication, applying effective decision making, and solving problems. We'll finish up by identifying and managing tradeoffs, discussing how to effectively meet with stakeholders, and using a project notebook.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Project control is the most important activity for your project. Regardless of how much time and effort you invest in your project plan, it's likely that your actual results will differ from what you expect. If you don't effectively control your project, the chances of meeting your project objectives are very slim. In this lesson, we'll expand on what we discussed earlier in the course. You'll learn the importance of project control, project performance measurements, and project reporting. You'll discover why Earned Value is an outstanding method to control project cost and performance. You'll also find out how a periodic project audit can keep your project on track.

Lesson 12

In our final lesson, we need to talk about what happens at the end of a project. To help increase your understanding about this topic, we'll work together to identify and discuss all the necessary activities that you must follow to effectively close your project. You'll work through the steps of project closure and also identify reasons why your project may not be successful. After you finish this lesson, you'll be well prepared to hold a formal project closure activity.

Course Details

In this course learn how to effectively apply the elements and methods of Six Sigma. Understand how more than 25 tools and methods relate to the DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control) model. Determine the relationship of basic statistics to Six Sigma and learn about the Six Sigma business case including strategic planning, the voice of the customer (VOC), quality function deployment (QFD), benchmarking, and financial investment methods. Discover how to use brainstorming, Pareto charts, and critical to quality help define processes, problems, and opportunities. Master the use of other key tools such as cause and effect diagrams, checksheets, scatter diagrams, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and force field analysis.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

In our first lesson, we'll start off by investigating DMAIC, the most popular acronym within the Six Sigma body of knowledge. It stands for define, measure, analyze, improve, and control. Then, to set the stage for the remaining lessons, we'll explore basic statistics. Since many of the Six Sigma methods and tools that we'll be discussing require that you have a basic knowledge of statistics, I want to make sure that you're well-prepared. I'll show you how to apply the measures of location—median, mode, mean—and the measures of dispersion—range, mean absolute deviation (MAD), variance, and standard deviation (SD).

 Lesson 02

In this lesson, we'll take a look at the business side of Six Sigma. We'll start off by discussing strategic planning—a concept that looks at internal strengths and weaknesses and external opportunities and threats. We'll move onto two methods of identifying customer requirements—the voice of the customer (VOC) and quality function deployment (QFD). Next, we'll explore benchmarking, a technique that helps you determine how your company matches up to the competition and industry standards. Finally, we'll look at a few financial methods to help you keep track of key objectives.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

You can't improve something unless you first define it. To help us identify what we're dealing with, we'll begin this lesson by reviewing the first element of the DMAIC model: define. We'll move on and cover the basic Six Sigma metrics—defects per unit (DPU), defects per million opportunities (DPMO), yield, and rolled throughput yield (RTY). Next, we'll investigate a few team techniques to help define conditions and situations—brainstorming, brainwriting, nominal group technique (NGT), and affinity diagrams. We'll finish up by seeing how Pareto charts and critical to quality (CTQ) relate to process and problem definition.

 Lesson 04

In our next two lessons, we'll tackle the measuring aspect of DMAIC. Along with defining a process, problem, or opportunity, if you don't measure something, you can't improve it. You'll learn about different types of data and gain an understanding of sampling by seeing how it's used to analyze and observe populations. We'll conclude the lesson by examining three graphical methods to measure a population: histograms, stem and leaf diagrams, and box and whiskers plots.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

As we continue our discussion on the measure component of DMAIC, we'll begin today by looking at probability distributions, failure methods and effects analysis (FMEA), and physical measurement. The probability distributions that we'll review (binomial, Poisson, and chi-square) are discrete. We'll study their formulas and see how their distributions compare to the normal curve. FMEA is one of the most popular and effective Six Sigma tools. I'll help you learn about FMEA's risk priority numbers (RPN) and also provide a form to help you use FMEA. We'll wrap-up the lesson by examining a few members of the physical measurement family—metrology, tensile strength, micrometers, and optical comparators.

 Lesson 06

In this lesson, I'll present several tools that relate to the third component of DMAIC: analyze. Our first order of business, today will be learning how to make sound decisions and assess risk. After that, we'll look at tools to help you investigate the processes, problems, and opportunities you defined and measured in the earlier lessons. I'll share how to use regression analysis and cause and effect diagrams. We'll also spend time on force field analysis, storyboards, decision trees, why-why diagrams, and finish up with checksheets and scatter diagrams.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Are you familiar with the old saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words?" Since we're going to be spending a large portion of the lesson discussing flowchartin', I believe this quotation is very relevant. Flowcharts are a fine tool to define processes and analyze what's taking place. We'll look at the ins and outs and the subtleties of creating and using flowcharts. After we discuss flowcharting, we'll jump back into the world of statistics and examine hypothesis testing and analysis of variance (ANOVA).

 Lesson 08

In this lesson and the next one, we'll discuss project management as an essential vehicle to help you achieve your Six Sigma plans. We'll begin by discussing the different phases of the project lifecycle. Then we'll move on and examine deliverables. Since they represent what customers expect, you need to know how to create and manage them. We'll also define stakeholders and talk about what they expect. I'll give special emphasis to the words "customers" and "stakeholders" to represent those inside and outside your organization.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Now that you have a good understanding of the different phases of a project and know all about deliverables, you're ready to learn how to "scope" and schedule a project. Scoping refers to making sure that you set the original boundaries for your project. When you understand all the variables of your project and define the scope properly, your plan and the results that follow have a much better chance of meeting stakeholder expectations. In this lesson, we'll talk about what is arguably the most valuable item in your project management toolbox—a work breakdown structure (WBS). We'll discuss two different versions of WBS and then we'll look at ways to schedule your project.

Lesson 10

If you like playing games and solving puzzles, you'll enjoy today's lesson. I'll address the "I element" (improve) of DMAIC by introducing the design of experiments (DOE). Although DOE has been around since the 1920s, it's taken a while for organizations to accept it. We'll begin with an overview and discuss what a design and an experiment are. You'll learn about the history of DOE and its nature. I'll identify the principles of sound experimental design and help you work on three DOE problems: one factor at a time (OFAT), full factorial, and fractional factorial DOE.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Today we'll finish our examination of DMAIC by featuring the final letter—C for control. I'll share three tools to help you control your operations: run charts, control charts, and process capability. We'll discuss how to create run charts, go through an overview of control charts, and create two different types of control charts. I'll wrap things up by showing you how to use process capability.

 Lesson 12

You've just about completed all course requirements except for learning how to think lean—our topic this lesson. Whenever I hear people talk about lean manufacturing or lean thinking, for some reason I think about going on a diet. When I give this notion some thought, it does make sense. Lean thinking means doing more with less. I guess this is how companies succeed: providing more satisfaction and more quality with less effort and less frustration. Our focus on lean thinking will consist of eliminating waste, reducing lead time, and minimizing the impact of constraints.

Course Details

This dynamic course will teach you how to express yourself comfortably in Italian. You'll learn practical, everyday words and phrases that will make your stay in Italy more enjoyable. You'll read, hear, and practice dialogues based on typical situations that you're likely to encounter while staying in Italy. The dialogues and follow-up exercises of each lesson will teach you to communicate in Italian in a wide variety of settings. You'll be surprised by how quickly and easily you can learn many useful expressions in Italian!

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

In this first lesson, you'll discover that, despite the Italian peninsula's long and rich history, Italy is actually a relatively young nation—much younger than the United States, for example. You'll also learn that many Italian words have been adopted into English, including many that you might say or hear on a regular basis—and not just spaghetti, pizza, and biscotti. You'll also be pleased to learn that there are many cognates in Italian. Cognates are words that share the same origin with English words, which makes them very easy for you to recognize and master. By the time you finish this lesson, you'll also know how to greet others properly and introduce yourself in Italian.

Friday - Lesson 02

In our second lesson, we'll explore the Italian alphabet and phonetics. You'll learn all 21 letters of the Italian alphabet, along with the various sounds they make, whether alone or in combination with one or more other letters. In addition, you'll learn five letters that Italian borrows for writing and speaking words that originated in other languages. With the tools you'll gain in this lesson (and some practice), you'll be able to read and correctly pronounce virtually all words and phrases in Italian.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Today, we'll discuss why, unlike in English, the names of places and things have gender in Italian. That's right, all nouns—even inanimate objects—are either masculine or feminine. You'll also learn that to pluralize nouns in Italian, you don't add "s" or "es" at the end of the word. Instead, you'll simply change the final vowel. For example, "one spaghetti noodle" is "spaghetti-o," while "spaghetti noodles" is "spaghetti-i." You'll also discover eight ways to say the word "the" in Italian. By the end of this lesson, you'll have a good grasp on some fundamental parts of speech, making it that much easier to put them together and use them.

 Lesson 04

In this lesson, you'll continue exploring some basic elements of the Italian language.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

While visiting Italy's many spectacular sites, you'll want to be able to ask for assistance. In this lesson, you'll learn to ask and give directions to places, making it easier for you to navigate the country's many historic cities and towns. By the time you reach the end of this lesson, you'll know how to say "to the right," "to the left," and "straight ahead." You will also know how to ask whether a location is nearby or far away. In addition to all the practical navigating skills you'll gain in this lesson, you'll also increase your understanding of Italian culture by learning several ways Italians greet one another.

 Lesson 06

Numbers are handy in many daily situations, and in this lesson, you'll learn the numbers 1 through 100. You'll explore ways you can put these numbers to practical use by asking and stating phone numbers, addresses, and bill totals. You'll even visit an Italian bar or caffè and learn to order breakfast. At the end of this lesson, you'll be able to discuss telephone numbers and addresses, ask and say how much things cost at the bar, and how and where to pay for them.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

In this lesson, you'll explore the calendar, learning to ask about and express days and dates. You'll learn some helpful techniques that make remembering the days of the week and the months of the year much easier. We'll also go over two key verbs—"are" and "fare." Both verbs are especially helpful when discussing the weather. By the end of Lesson 7, you'll be able to talk about days and dates, and to ask about and describe the weather.

 Lesson 08

Today, you'll apply the numbers knowledge you gained in Lesson 6 and 7 to the clock and schedules. You'll learn to ask and tell the time, and to ask and express key time-relate terms, such as "when," "early," and "late." You'll continue learning about Italian culture, and find out how important labor strikes are in Italy. Because strikes often impact travel, you'll learn how to ask when they'll begin and when they'll end. All of these things should help put you more at ease while traveling. By the end of the lesson, you'll know how to tell time and read business schedules in Italian.

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Do you plan to make some purchases while in Italy, or take a train, boat, or bus? We'll go over how to handle these situations in today's lesson. You'll learn the vocabulary and phrases you need to discuss items such as transportation tickets and their prices. You'll learn to use the always-handy expression "Vorrei"¬¬—which means "I would like..."—to request information or items. By the end of this lesson, you'll know how ask about and purchase train, boat, or bus tickets, ask about prices and make purchases, and even rent a vehicle while in Italy.

 Lesson 10

Even before you arrive in Italy, you'll probably need to discuss and book your accommodations, and we'll explore how to do just that in today's lesson. You'll learn to describe the kind of room you're looking for, and ask about availability. By combining new vocabulary with elements you've learned in previous lessons, you'll be able to ask very specific questions about your lodging. You'll know how to confirm whether your room has air conditioning and Internet service and if the price includes breakfast. You'll practice making a phone call to a hotel to ensure you can book your accommodations long before you arrive at your destination.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

In this lesson, we'll go over something really important: How to ask for help—"auto" [ah-YOO-toh]—in any situation. More specifically, you'll learn to describe health and medical concerns to a pharmacist or doctor. You'll practice an authentic dialog with each to help put you at ease while you're in Italy. You'll also learn to ask others to help you by calling the police or an ambulance. By the time you finish this lesson, you'll be able to handle virtually any emergency situation in Italian.

Lesson 12

Italy's world-renowned cuisine is as important as its many historical monuments (some might say it's even more important!). In our final lesson, you'll become well-versed in the various types of eateries in Italy, the types of meals you can expect to find in them, and how meals are typically served. You'll practice using all the vocabulary you'll need to order food, whether it's a snack in un bar or an entire four-course meal in un trattoria. You'll learn how to ask about typical regional or local specialties, and how to say that you'd like to try a particular wine or dish. When you reach the end of this lesson, you'll be fully prepared to order a meal at any Italian eatery.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

In our first lesson, we'll review Spanish pronunciation to take you closer to the target sounds you'll need to make when speaking Spanish. We'll review Recipes 1 and 2, and you'll pick up an additional speaking template associated with Recipe 2. At the end of this lesson, your pronunciation will be better and you'll know how to apply Recipes 1 and 2 to a variety of Spanish-speaking situations.

Lesson 02

We'll spend quite a bit of time in this course talking about the past tense, and that topic starts in this lesson. Once you finish this lesson, you'll know when to apply Recipes 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 to present and past tense Spanish-speaking situations.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Today, you'll learn the past-tense of Recipe 6 and all about Recipe 7. You'll learn to pick up the pace by using exercises to help build up your speed in moving from one recipe to another. When you've completed this lesson, you'll know lots of vocabulary words, a lot more verbs, more fun phrases, and perhaps most important of all, you'll know how to use Recipes 1 through 7 in any Spanish-speaking situation.

 Lesson 04

In this lesson, you'll learn to link your recipes so that you're able to move from one recipe to another without hesitation. Once you're able to do this, you're on your way to becoming more fluent in Spanish. Even so, there will be times when you'll have a memory lapse or a verbal breakdown. Not to worry—today you'll also learn how to the breakdown in Spanish, making it appear that you think in Spanish!

Week Three

 Lesson 05

You'll be much less egocentric after you finish this lesson because you'll be able to reach out and embrace other people in your Spanish conversations. Today you'll learn how to incorporate other people into your Spanish. By practicing Recipe 7, you'll learn a range of ways to bring other people into your conversations.

 Lesson 06

Today, you'll continue to practice incorporating other people into your Spanish conversations. But in this lesson, you'll also learn to carry on a conversation with some depth because you'll be able to reduce your sentences to short and crisp bursts.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Today, we're going to use Recipes 1 and 7 to talk about the future. Besides having fun with Recipes 1 and 7 and the future tense, you'll learn all about Recipe 8. This one teaches you to use would-related sentences in Spanish. When this lesson is complete, you'll be able to get into the past, the present, the future, and the conditional.

 Lesson 08

While the focus of this course is to help you learn recipes for constructing spanish sentences, you'll learn a considerable amount of vocabulary along the way. In this lesson, you'll take a pause from the recipes to learn to string lots of adjectives together. When you've completed this lesson, you'll be able to speak like a poet—if you want to!

Week Five

 Lesson 09

Today, you'll learn why so-called irregular verbs are not as irregular as you may have thought. There's a pattern to their so-called irregularity. By applying Recipe 7 to these irregular Spanish verbs, you'll learn to use them in no time at all. You'll also practice most of the recipes you've learned so far so that you can become even more efficient when conversing with Spanish speakers.

 Lesson 10

In this lesson, you'll learn all about Recipe 9. This recipe will help you become a highly capable storyteller, making past and present events more interesting to your listeners. When you finish this lesson, you'll have what it takes to say what you want to say with style and color.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

Today, you'll learn all the different ways to produce possessive expressions. You might know how to translate My house is your house, but do you know how to translate phrases like: This is mine, not yours. Whose is this? Is this hers? Oh, it's theirs, not ours. This lesson will show you how. You'll also get some time to practice the recipes and you'll even pick up more vocabulary and fun phrases.

 Lesson 12

Throughout all of our lessons, I'll continue to share the story of my experiences with David Smith, Señor Macias, and Platero. In today's lesson, the adventure comes to a surprising climax, but not before you learn all about Recipe 10. Armed with Recipes 1 through 10, you'll be ready to go out and find some Spanish speakers to talk to!

Course Details

This 6-week online course includes an in-depth analysis of English grammar for intermediate to advanced English as Second Language college students.

Topics Covered

Week One

 Lesson 01

No matter what the language, grammar is often viewed as a difficult thing to grasp. Most of us don't really know what grammar is. You'll find out here in our first lesson. You'll be surprised to learn how simple grammar can be. Once you discover this, you'll want to read and learn more.

 Lesson 02

Unlike other languages, English grammar follows a very logical structure. In this lesson, you'll discover how the language functions and grasp the main verbs of English. In addition, we'll explore some of the language structures that can be confusing and prove that once you discover the trick, they really aren't confusing at all.

Week Two

 Lesson 03

Today, we'll talk about the past and present tenses. We'll examine how we manipulate verbs to give specific meanings. You'll find out how to construct effective sentences in standard academic English.

 Lesson 04

In this lesson, you'll see how an action is reported as complete in future time. A lot of people, including native speakers, avoid this future perfect form, but you won't. You'll discover why it's important to understand and use the future perfect. Then we'll explore the difference between the infinitive (to go) and the gerund (going) forms. You will learn when and how to use them appropriately.

Week Three

 Lesson 05

Native speakers know how to use most of the models correctly. But it's common to make errors in using the right model for the right tense (time). In this lesson, we'll make sense of these unique words that are used to help verbs give a specific meaning.

 Lesson 06

The core of this lesson is identifying the active and passive voice or, who did what to whom. This is essential because it reflects one's ability to think clearly and logically. Understanding the active and passive voice is also important because it will help you detect deceitful statements others may make in an effort to persuade you to do something.

Week Four

 Lesson 07

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a clause and a phrase? Today you'll find out. You'll also learn how questions are formed in English. This is particularly important because English can be a little different from other languages. For example, Spanish generally depends on the music of the language to create a question. English depends on the word order—the verb must always come before the subject in order to form a question.

Lesson 08

To report means to say what we saw or heard—to retell what someone has already said, or what we have already experienced. Communication would be very difficult if we didn't have the reported speech form. Can you imagine yourself talking in quotes all the time? In this lesson, we'll examine what English speakers do to change a quoted speech to reported speech. You'll find out how easy it is to do this and also learn the common errors that even native speakers make.

Week Five

Lesson 09

Today, we'll look at practical applications of adjective and adverb clauses. These terms can be confusing, but I'll make them as clear as possible in this lesson. You'll discover that the challenge of learning them can actually be fun!

Lesson 10

Real and unreal conditionals create a problem for many of us. A speaker can easily make errors if he or she is unaware of what's real and what's unreal. Today, you'll grasp the difference and find out what's considered acceptable English. You'll be surprised to see how often mistakes are made and how easy it is to avoid making them.

Week Six

Lesson 11

There are many nouns in English that can't be counted. We need to know what they are so we can use the proper verb form with them. In this lesson, we'll address these nouns. We'll see how to make the verb agree with the subject of a sentence. You'll learn how to determine what verb form to use if the subject is singular, third person, plural, or non-count.

Lesson 12

In this, our final lesson, we'll discuss your newly developed confidence in understanding how English grammar works. We'll talk about how what we've covered contributes to an appreciation for languages in general and English in particular.

    Test Preparation
  • Subject:
    GRE

Course Details

If you're planning to apply to graduate school, you'll likely have to take the GRE. This course is here to help!

Topics Covered

Week One

Lesson 01

You may have heard that you can't study for the GRE. Not true! There is a bunch of things you can do to prepare, and the more time you spend preparing, the better your scores will be. We'll go over the general makeup of the GRE so you'll know exactly what to expect. You'll also learn how to relax when you feel panicky, how to eliminate the wrong answers the tests entice you to choose, how to guess when you're not sure, and how much time to spend on each question.

Lesson 02

You've seen traditional multiple-choice questions before, but have you experienced quantitative comparisons or math questions that can have more than one correct answer? Don't worry; this lesson introduces you to all types of GRE math questions so you'll know exactly what's in store.

Week Two

Lesson 03

You learned arithmetic in grade school, but may have forgotten some of the basics that you'll see in the GRE math sections. We'll review the essentials such as multiplication and division, and clarify concepts that might be a little fuzzy, like exponents and fractions.

Lesson 04

Review all the pertinent standard algebra concepts you may not remember from high schools, such as variables, factoring, and functions so that you'll know exactly how to answer algebra-related GRE questions.

Week Three

Lesson 05

This lesson continues our math review with a discussion about coordinate geometry. We'll take a look at the basics, such as intercepts and slope; then we'll explore functions and how to graph equations and functions on the coordinate plane. 

Lesson 06

Because geometry is another component of the GRE math questions, we'll review the most tested concepts in today's lesson. Rediscover the properties of angles, triangles, squares, circles, and other shapes so that you can answer questions that ask for those pesky measurements for lines, curves, and angles.

Week Four

Lesson 07

You don't have to take a statistics class to master the concepts for the GRE. Most statistics, probability, and other less-familiar math questions are pretty basic. In this lesson, you'll learn how to prepare for them all, including tendency, frequency, and probability.

Lesson 08

Now we'll apply the math concepts we've reviewed to a brand new question type.  GRE quantitative comparison questions present two values with three answer options: determine which is greater, equal, or the question doesn't provide enough information to make a determination. Sound confusing?  Don't worry—in this lesson we'll review how to deal with this unique question type.

Week Five

Lesson 09

The GRE quantitative reasoning sections will likely include a group of data interpretation questions. These questions aren't too difficult if you're prepared for them, and preparing for them is what this lesson is all about! You'll learn how to evaluate charts and graphs, apply your evaluations, and quickly respond to whatever the GRE asks.

Lesson 10

The majority of GRE math questions aren't data comparisons or data interpretations.  They're the standard math questions you're used to solving: equations, values, and word problems. In today's lesson, you'll practice using the tools you'll need to work through these problems quickly. We'll go over tips to help with multiple-choice questions, choosing correct answers without working out lengthy equations, and strategies for answering number entry questions, too.

Week Six

 Lesson 11

They say that practice makes perfect.  With today's lesson, you'll have plenty of opportunities to reach perfection! Through our analysis of a practice quantitative reasoning section, you'll solidify your approach to GRE math questions.

Lesson 12

The final lesson continues our discussion of a sample GRE quantitative reasoning section. We'll focus on how to answer the variety of question formats for standard math questions and practice analyzing data in graphs and charts.
