Look Ma! NO TEXTBOOKS REQUIRED! Spring 2016 Courses!

Look Ma, No Textbooks! Spring 2016 Courses by Chuck Konkol

Spring 2016 Courses @ RVC

The Spring 2016 registration season is among us and I thought some might be interested in taking one or more of the below courses I am teaching at Rock Valley College. In order to make my courses more appealing to the pocketbook, I’m not requiring textbooks for Spring 2016 courses. Instead, all students will receive a custom designed eWorkbook for reading, labs and assignments.

This should save students between $100-$200 per course. In addition, eWorkbook content can be updated dynamically.Students who have the eWorkbooks will receive those updates during and after course is completed.Please take a moment to read the below course offerings with descriptions. If a course needs a prerequisite I will gladly fill out a course waiver.

Thanks for your time and I hope to see you in class,
