Distance Education: Web Course Information
- From the Instructor:
- This section of WR 121 is an online course. Please note that online courses require proactive student participation and management and are a good choice for students who are self-motivated and self-disciplined. This WR 121 course meets entirely online, which allows for flexibility, especially for students who have other life obligations. However, students need to schedule WR 121 in a term that will allow them the necessary time for a work-heavy and writing intensive course. Students will need to check into the course and complete assignments during each week of the course term, often on a daily basis. In addition to required reading, writing and essay assignments, students are required to participate in peer group work and discussion assignments. In order to be successful, students should plan to incorporate daily blocks of time in their schedules for reading, writing and completing assignments for this course.
