TTH: 8:30 a.m.-9:50 a.m. ELC306

Text:    Novell's eDirectory Design and Implementation student kit, Novell Press.

Course Objectives:

This course is designed to develop skills necessary to effectively design and implement a Novell eDirectory tree in a working environment.  Issues involved are planning, designing and implementing directory structures, and partition and replica strategies to name a few. NetWare 6 will be used.

Course Approach:

This course is a mix of lecture and hands-on exercises.  The text, lecture materials and the Internet will serve as the major sources of information for this course.  Your responsibility as a student is to read the text, attend class sessions, take thorough notes, complete assigned tasks, and complete all exams.  Questions are always encouraged and welcome.

Comfortable Learning Environment:

Students with medical, psychological, learning, or other disabilities desiring academic adjustments, accommodations, or auxiliary aids will need to contact the Southern Utan University Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), in Room 206F of the Sharwan Smith Center, phone (435)865-8022.  SSD determines eligibility for and authorizes the provision of services.


Exercises 30%
Exams & Quizzes 40%
Attendance, Participation, and Discussions 30%


Hands-On exercises will be given and done in class, and so attendance is extremely important. The Hands-On exercises will be posted on the daily schedule. Instructions will be given online and in class.

Exams and Quizzes:

Quizzes, both announced and unannounced, may be given throughout the semester and may cover material previously discussed or to be discussed in class that day.  Students are encouraged to read and review discussion materials before class.

Attendance, Participation, and Discussions

Due to the time given in class to complete exercises, it is strongly encouraged that you attend class.

Late Work:

Late work will be accepted within two days of the announced due date.  Late work will receive an automatic grade reduction of 25%.  Late work turned in after the two day grace period will not be accepted.

Make-up Exams:

Make-up exams will be given for university-approved absences or absences pre-approved by the instructor.  Illness, unless the instructor is notified in advance of the exam period, is not considered justification for make-up exams.  Make-up exams, when given, will be at a time convenient to the instructor.  Final exams are to be taken at the designated time and place.  In extreme cases the final may be taken at a different time, however, the student must pay an early exam fee to the SUU Registrar's office and a copy of the receipt must be provided to the instructor before the exam is taken.

    Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.
