Adobe Honors SRJC Program
Each quarter the Adobe industry partnership program honors top-ranked training centers and individual instructors. The Adobe program in the Computer Studies Department competes with private training institutions throughout the world.
At the end of each class, students are required to submit a thorough online evaluation through "Metrics That Matter." It gives detailed feedback and information about how the training enhances student graphic skills in the workplace.
For the third quarter of 2008, SRJC Instructor Cyndi Reese was the #2 instructor and the SRJC Adobe program was recognized for having the most evaluations at a high rating of performance. This is a great honor to SRJC’s Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop instructors for their quality instruction.
Course Names and Numbers Have Changed
The Computer Studies Department, previously the Computer and Information Sciences Department, renumbered all of its courses during the 2009-2010 academic year.
All courses that previously had a CIS prefix, for example CIS101A, now have a CS prefix and, in most cases, a new number.
In addition, office applications courses that were previously in the BOT Department have moved to the Computer Studies Department. They now start with the CS prefix as well.
This process was completed in spring 2010. Some courses had their "old" numbers for fall 2009, while some already had their new numbers.
To assist you in finding the course that you want, you may access the following tables that list each course with its old and new numbers:
In addition, here is an explanation of the new numbering scheme.
