As a result, it fundamentally changes the way applications are developed for the Windows Operating System. Through the Microsoft.NET Framework, the student will use the tools and technologies to develop and deploy scalable and reliable web-based applications. Specific topic areas that will be covered include XML Web Services, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Microsoft Visual Basic.NET and Microsoft C#.NET.

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

Conestoga recognizes prior learning of skills, knowledge or competencies that have been acquired through employment, formal and informal education, non-formal learning or other life experiences. Prior learning must be measurable at the required academic level and meet Conestoga standards of achievement for current courses. Challenge exams and portfolio development are the primary methods of assessment. Other methods of assessment may be available depending upon the nature of the course objectives. Successful completion of the assessment results in an official course credit that will be recorded on the student's Conestoga transcript. PLAR cannot be used by registered Conestoga students for the clearance of academic deficiencies, to improve grades or to obtain admission into a program.
