CiC

Computers in the Classroom (CiC) is a course offered at the University of North Texas (UNT) as LTEC 4100. In Fall 2010 Wesley Fryer is teaching one M-W section of this 3 hour F2F course. This is the online learning portal for my students and others interested in our learning. Content here is similar to Technology 4 Teachers (T4T) which Wesley taught in Spring 2010 at the University of Central Oklahoma.
