Relation to IDS 110

We wanted to list this course as IDS 111; however, new IDS listings are no longer allowed--hence the cross-listing between the School of Information Management and Systems and the College of Engineering.

Like this course, IDS 110 is a survey course on computing. It emphasizes lightweight programming, personal productivity applications, and computation. It is predominately technical and skill based. It is not a prerequisite for this course, although you may want to take it before, during, or after this course -- there is little overlap.

This course is also a survey course, but emphasizes the implications of networking in conjunction with computing. This course also emphasizes the impact on organizations (businesses) and groups of users, rather than individuals (of course, this is inherent to networking). This course also considers the social and policy implications of networked computing, as well as the applications and technology.
