Is there a study text accompanying this course that takes students a bit deeper into the material that's presented in class? Perhaps putting the information in varied usage contexts or expanding slightly into the nerdy side of the technology and how ubiquitous it's become?

Marjorie - thanks for your first comment!

Is there a study text accompanying this course that takes students a bit deeper [...]

Yes, the course will have reading assignments for each class that should be done before the live presentation. The reports assigned for class are derived from our testing and research.

The reading is followed by a live presentation on the content in the readings with two IPVM employees presenting, providing live demonstrations, monitoring chat for questions and comments and adding color to the information from the reading assignments.
