Welcome to Open Campus! #mcse, #mct, #mcp, #microsoft #certified, #systems #engineer,


Our Mission.

The mission of RCCD Distance Education (formerly Open Campus) is to extend access to learning through distance education. Objectives: To facilitate learning at a distance, Distance Education provides:

  • Educational technology to the colleges, faculty, and students to support the delivery of online-based courses and services
  • Professional development and training for faculty
  • Expertise and experience
  • Blackboard management, production and problem solving.

As of April 21, the Open Campus department has changed its name to Distance Education. We thank you for your patience as we work to complete the changes to website by the middle of summer.

What Are Online Based or Distance Education classes?

Online-based courses, also called Distance Education classes, may take two different forms:

Online classes are taken exclusively over the Internet. Please note that, while some online courses provide all instructional content over the Internet, others may require some on-campus meetings. Please see the course schedule or WebAdvisor for more information.

Hybrid classes meet both on campus and online. Think of them as a combination or blending of online classes and face-to-face classes.

In a hybrid class, you will attend meetings on campus during the dates and times listed in the schedule of classes. Since the on-campus portion of hybrid classes could take place at any of our three colleges (Riverside City, Norco or Moreno Valley), hybrid classes are listed in the schedule by the college where the on-campus meetings will take place.

Are there Face-to-Face classes that use the Internet?

Web-Enhanced classes are traditional face-to-face classes that are supplemented with course websites and the use of Internet resources. Unlike hybrid or fully-online classes, all web-enhanced class meetings take place on campus.

Where Do I Start?

Computational and Inferential: The Foundations of Data Science

Post under Data Science on Sat Jul 01, 2017

Step by step, you’ll learn how to leverage algorithmic thinking and the power of code, gain intuition about the power and limitations of current machine learning methods, and effectively apply them to real business problems.

Artificial Neural Networks – Models and Applications

This is a current book on Artificial Neural Networks and Applications, bringing recent advances in the area to the reader interested in this always-evolving machine learning technique. It contains chapters on basic concepts of artificial neural networks.

Applied Artificial Neural Networks (Christian Dawson)

This book focuses on the application of neural networks to a diverse range of fields and problems. It collates contributions concerning neural network applications in areas such as engineering, hydrology and medicine.

This book provides proven steps and strategies on learning what Linux is and how to use it. It contains information on the Linux Operating System, especially for beginners.

Optimization Algorithms- Methods and Applications

This book covers state-of-the-art optimization methods and their applications in wide range especially for researchers and practitioners who wish to improve their knowledge in this field.

Global Optimization Algorithms – Theory and Application. 2nd Ed.

This book is devoted to global optimization algorithms, which are methods to find optimal solutions for given problems. It especially focuses on Evolutionary Computation by discussing evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, Genetic Programming, etc.

Artificial Neural Networks – Architectures and Applications

This book covers architectures, design, optimization, and analysis of artificial neural networks as well as applications of artificial neural networks in a wide range of areas including biomedical, industrial, physics, and financial applications.

With this example-driven ebook, you’ll learn how improved metaprogramming techniques in C++11 and C++14 can help you avoid a lot of mistakes and tedious work by making the compiler work for you.

Cloud Computing – Architecture and Applications (Jaydip Sena)

This book presents some critical applications in cloud frameworks along with some innovation design of algorithms and architecture for deployment in cloud environment. It establishes concrete, academic coverage with a focus on structure and solutions.

Internet Cafe Sample Business Plan – Executive Summary #executive #summary, #objectives,

Plan Outline

Internet Cafe Business Plan

Executive Summary

JavaNet, unlike a typical cafe, will provide a unique forum for communication and entertainment through the medium of the Internet. JavaNet is the answer to an increasing demand. The public wants: (1) access to the methods of communication and volumes of information now available on the Internet, and (2) access at a cost they can afford and in such a way that they aren’t socially, economically, or politically isolated. JavaNet’s goal is to provide the community with a social, educational, entertaining, atmosphere for worldwide communication.

This business plan is prepared to obtain financing in the amount of £24,000. The supplemental financing is required to begin work on site preparation and modifications, equipment purchases, and to cover expenses in the first year of operations. Additional financing has already been secured in the form of: (1) £24,000 from the Oregon Economic Development Fund (2) £19,000 of personal savings from owner Cale Bruckner (3) £36,000 from three investors (4) and £9,290 in the form of short-term loans.

JavaNet will be incorporated as an LLC corporation. This will shield the owner Cale Bruckner, and the three outside investors, Luke Walsh, Doug Wilson, and John Underwood, from issues of personal liability and double taxation. The investors will be treated as shareholders and therefore will not be liable for more than their individual personal investment of £12,000 each.

The financing, in addition to the capital contributions from the owner, shareholders and the Oregon Economic Development Fund, will allow JavaNet to successfully open and maintain operations through year one. The large initial capital investment will allow JavaNet to provide its customers with a full featured Internet cafe. A unique, upscale, and innovative environment is required to provide the customers with an atmosphere that will spawn socialization. Successful operation in year one will provide JavaNet with a customer base that will allow it to be self sufficient in year two.

1.1 Objectives

JavaNet’s objectives for the first three years of operation include:

  • The creation of a unique, upscale, innovative environment that will differentiate JavaNet from local coffee houses.
  • Educating the community on what the Internet has to offer.
  • The formation of an environment that will bring people with diverse interests and backgrounds together in a common forum.
  • Good coffee and bakery items at a reasonable price.
  • Affordable access to the resources of the Internet and other online services.

1.2 Keys to Success

The keys to the success for JavaNet are:

  • The creation of a unique, innovative, upscale atmosphere that will differentiate JavaNet from other local coffee shops and future Internet cafes.
  • The establishment of JavaNet as a community hub for socialization and entertainment.
  • The creation of an environment that won’t intimidate the novice user. JavaNet will position itself as an educational resource for individuals wishing to learn about the benefits the Internet has to offer.
  • Great coffee and bakery items.

1.3 Mission

As the popularity of the Internet continues to grow at an exponential rate, easy and affordable access is quickly becoming a necessity of life. JavaNet provides communities with the ability to access the Internet, enjoy a cup of coffee, and share Internet experiences in a comfortable environment. People of all ages and backgrounds will come to enjoy the unique, upscale, educational, and innovative environment that JavaNet provides.

1.4 Risks

The risks involved with starting JavaNet are:

  • Will there be a demand for the services offered by JavaNet in Eugene?
  • Will the popularity of the Internet continue to grow, or is the Internet a fad?
  • Will individuals be willing to pay for the service JavaNet offers?
  • Will the cost of accessing the Internet from home drop so significantly that there will not be a market for Internet Cafes such as JavaNet?
