Course Attribute

Confirmed with Jack Prostsko that this is a variable topics course and repeatable for credit. Added "Topics in" to title.
gharris (Thu, 02 Mar 2017 17:01:25 GMT): Rollback: Please provide Bulletin course description (1-2 lines covering only main topics/themes of the course) and resubmit.
gharris (Mon, 03 Apr 2017 14:56:56 GMT): Rollback: Please confirm that course is repeatable for credit. This is usually true of 'topics' courses where topics vary by semester, and students may repeat the course only if the topic differs. If it's not repeatable, please uncheck box and resubmit. If it is, we should consider changing title to "Topics in IT...." and I will add the usual topics course language.
