CS-341 - Spring 2001
Use QC Online
Course material is available through QC Online this semester. To
access the material, you will need a "Vanguard" account, which will
give you access to QC Online. QC Online is a web host which runs course
management software called "Blackboard," so you will hear the terms QC
Online and Blackboard used interchangeably.
To get started, go to [ http://vanguard.qc.edu ], where

given there, and you will get a username and password, which can then be

secure as you possibly can.
- Edit your personal information and change your email address from
"firstname.lastname@example.org" to the real email address where you want me to send
supplementary course material during the semester. If you change
your email account during the term, be sure to update it on QC
