     Welcome to our online class space. Come ready to learn; to be surprised; to be inspired; to become more! Here on this website is collected the fruit of years of sweat, tears, and hard earned experience in academic computing. We've all struggled with the technology, trying to present all our hard work in the best, most modern, efficient, or dazzling way we know, only to come away frustrated, defeated, and generally let down with the lackluster results. Too little to show for too much work! We've all been there. 
This site can help. 
     The sole purpose of every technique, trick, shortcut, or illustration contained herein is to enable anybody to become that technologically proficient 21st century student they've always imagined! We will present concepts and concrete step by step instruction designed to wow, engage, and generally raise grades.
That is the purpose here!
