For Course Description, Textbook(s) and Software Required, select the course:
- INFX 501 – Algorithmic Concepts for Information Professionals (1 Cr Cr/NC)

- INFX 503 – Website Design Concepts for information Professional (1 Cr Cr/NC)

Note/Tip: Courses INFX 501 - 505 are not a sequential series. If you are looking to meet technology requirements, go with something that interests you or will be most useful in your future. Both 501 and 503 are coding classes, but many students find 503 to be more interesting and a bit easier to slip into coding.
Last four Qtrs student self-estimate: On average, how many hours per week have you spent on this course, including attending classes, doing readings, reviewing notes, writing papers and any other course related work?
I hope this is useful to you. Please note the number and percentage of responses. You might keep that in mind at the end of the quarter when I ask you to complete the course assessment.

MBA and other non-iSchool UW Students - How to get in my classes
These courses are 100% online with no scheduled sessions. As with all online courses, it is up to the student to stay on track or to ask for help. Most students are grad students in some UW program, mostly in the Information School's MSIM and MLIS programs but also the Law School, Nursing, MBA, etc.At the start of each quarter’s registration, there may be a bit of confusion. Here are a couple of pieces of information to help you get you in the classes.
- There is no enrollment cap in any of these courses, so there is and will always be a seat for you. Don't panic if it takes a few days to navigate the system. The door will not close on you.
- It should be a simple process to register - just make sure you use the correct SLN from the
current Time Schedule posted
online. You should be able to do this on your own via your MyUW.
- Registration for INFX 501-505 is open starting in period 1 (Feb 10th for Spring 2017).
- No add codes are required for INFX 501-505 courses during this initial registration period and thru the start of the quarter.
- Add codes are only required for courses during the late add registration period, which starts a week after the quarter begins.
- Fee-based students should register for their choice of INFX 501-505 using the information at this Time Schedule: http://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/SPR2017/95infx.html
- State-supported students should register for their choice of INFX 501-505 using the information at this Time Schedule: http://www.washington.edu/students/timeschd/SPR2017/infx.html
- Any registration questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to answer questions about couse content and structure, but only they can help you with registration.
- Always include your UW ID – first part of your UW email address in any communications with MSIM or me.
- If you register after the course starts, I can manually grant you access to Canvas so that you do not have to wait while the glitches get worked out. I will need your UW ID.
Please feel free to contact me at any time before, during or after the course.Bob
