What is Flash CS5
Flash CS5 is professional standard software, used in industry, to produce animation found in websites.
Be prepared to spend at least 5 hours per week using and studying Flash software. You will work through the chapter exercises in
the book as well as create hands on training exercises provided by the instructor. You will also create two comprehensive projects
demonstrating your newly learned Flash skills. A final exam will be given at the end of the quarter.
Also, you will need to have reliable email and an internet connection. Because the class is 100% online, your hardware and
connectivity is a vital part of communicating with the instructor.
Students are required to have email and Internet access for the class.Students must make sure they receive my class emails by
verifying their mailboxes are not full. Also, students must make sure my class emails are not accidentally going into the Junk Mail
file. It is the students responsibility to assure email authenticity on their end.
Students may be dropped from the class if they are inactive for two weeks or more. This rule applies throughout the quarter. The
online class generates a report showing all students online activity including logins, therefore, all inactive students will be
dropped. Please review the DeAnza College academic calendar for the last day to drop a class.
Academic Integrity Policy:
It is expected all students will be academically honest and complete their own work. Any type or form of cheating will result in the
student receiving a failing grade.
