Distance Education: Web Course Information
- From the Instructor:
- IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU? Perhaps the most important information I can give you in making this decision is to tell you my expectations regarding the TIME this course will require: this is a college-level course. If you were taking it on campus, you would be in class 4 hours a week and could expect to have between 4 to 8 hours of homework outside of class time each week. Although you have much more flexibility about when you do the work of this course online, the time commitment is likely to be similar: 8 to 12 hours a week. IF YOU ONLY HAVE TWO TO FOUR HOURS A WEEK TO SPEND ON THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT THE RIGHT CLASS FOR YOU. If you do decide on this class, please be sure to log in on the first day (Monday March 31) to introduce yourself, and to be sure you don't loose your 'seat' in the class.
- Course Specific Requirements:
- TEXTBOOK REQUIREMENTS: The text for this class will be one non-fiction trade paperback that you choose from a list of 10 options. You can view the options by visiting the PCC Bookstore online. However, my recommendation is not to purchase a text until after the course starts, when you will have a chance to read more about the options and how we will actually be using the texts in the class. We won't start reading from them until Week 3 in the course, so you will have time to make an informed choice. (And if you're concerned about budgeting, none of the options should cost more than $20.)
- Web Technical Requirements:
