Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

APC Document 16:††††††††††††††††††††††††† Replace CSCI 244 with CSCI 185

 

Effective Date:Fall 2011

 

 

1.††† Delete:†††††††† On page 106, the entry for CSCI 244:

 

††††††††††††††† ††††††† ††††††† 244†††††††† Internet Client-Side Technology (3)

††††††††††††††† An intermediate class extending the fundamentals of Web page design. Topics include advanced HTML and the document object model (DOM), dynamic Web pages and style sheets. Prerequisite: CSCI 107. Fall.

 

††††††† Add:††††††††††††† On page 106, new entry for CSCI 185:

 

††††††††††††††† ††††††† ††††††† 185†††††††† Internet Client-Side Technology (3)

††††††††††††††† The technology of web documents. Topics include style sheets, dynamic content, database interface, scripting languages, and event handling. Prerequisite: CSCI 107 or MMAS 121. See department chair.

 

Impact:

CSCI 185 is a replacement for CSCI 244. The faculty member who taught this course retired last year, and the department has not been able to offer the course since a replacement faculty member hasnít been hired.It is anticipated that the department will hire for the position this year, in which case we would be able to offer this course again. The course has been frequently requested by students in CSCI and MMAS.

 

Rationale:

The course is being renumbered to reflect that it is appropriate for first-year students and is considered an introductory programming course, similar to the proposed CSCI 181 and 182. The new description should clarify the differences between this course, which focuses on CSCI issues such as control and representation, with courses in the MMAS program that emphasize aesthetic development.
