Online publisher materials

This course uses a required text that all MP 111 classes have adopted -- Medical Language: Immerse Yourself, FOURTH Edition, by Susan Turley. ISBN: 9780134320472, by Pearson Publishing, available at PCC bookstores. The required access to the student web site, Pearson's MyMedicalTerminologyLab (MyLab for short), uses an individual access code that comes WITH the textbook PACKAGE as long as the student buys the ISBN given above. Students can also purchase the MyLab access separately through the Pearson web site (not the PCC book store) if they only have the book. There is also a temporary 14-day access available for students that have delays in getting the MyLab access (due to problems like delays receiving financial aid, book on back order). In that case, the student must gain full access before the temporary option expires. Pearson's MyLab has full support for students

Instructor comments:

Please consider that this is a 4-credit class and will require regular log-in and studying. A required self-introduction is assigned in the D2L Discussion forum. It is due by noon on Friday of the FIRST WEEK. Students that do not complete this by the deadline are subject to being dropped from the course. Students must register their text at the publisher's web site, MyMedicalTerminologyLab (MyLab). That is where much of the coursework is done. This requires getting a current text with an access code that allows you to enroll in MyLab. This is explained above. CONTACTING THE INSTRUCTOR is done within the course using D2L email. Once you enter the online class page, use D2L email instead of PCC email for routine communications.
