 Hi, Everyone!

This semester, I will be teaching CAOT 085.  No psychology or counseling classes this time.

This is the main web page for Dr. Steven Mark Sachs’ Spring, 2015 online Excel class.  This is CAOT 085, Section 7013, at Los Angeles Valley College.  Our class will cover Excel 2013.

Here’s a link to an introductory video that will help you get a feel for our class.  Don’t forget to come back to this website to continue your preparation.

Dr. Sachs’ Introductory Video for Our Class!

If you’re looking at the site before February 9, 2015 (the first day of the Spring, 2015 semester), please also check back here again as soon as the semester begins.  The site may be updated several times before the start date of next semester.

For all classes, you need to know how to log into the LACCD (Los Angeles Community College District) student e-mail system, and you really need to check that e-mail every day of the semester, once it begins.  My students should also check it beginning at least two weeks before the semester begins.

Your student e-mail address was mailed to you after you registered with the college.  You can get information about student e-mail by clicking here:  https://www.lavc.edu/getconnected/studentemail.html.

Please click on the links in the heading of this page to learn about our online class for the current semester.  Each one has more information than you might imagine, so please don’t skip anything.

The best order to go through all of this will be like this:

  1. Welcome Letter
  2. First Steps
  3. The Syllabus
  4. Your SAM Account
  5. Dropbox Information
  6. Readiness Checklist

I really think you should see that introductory video, if you haven’t already done so, so here’s the link again in a slightly different format:

PLEASE REMEMBER:  To get back to the menu on this website, you will probably have to scroll all the way to the top of the page.

You will be returning to the Syllabus many times over the semester, so please get to know it extra well.

Good luck this semester!

. . . Professor Steve
