Instructor comments:

This is a hybrid course - most activities take place online. You should be prepared with a different mentality; it is very easy to get behind. I recommend you schedule three hours per week (just like you would if this class met on campus) to sit down in front of a computer to read, prepare and post class material. These hours need to be without distractions: no kids, no TV, etc. There will be regular quizzes with due dates which you need to be aware of. Students that succeed in the class generally log in at least every other day to check discussion messages. Those that log in once a week generally fall behind and have a difficult time catching up. And, just like any other course, you will need additional time to do the off-line reading and homework assignments (expect 6-9 hours for a 3 credit class.)

You should log on to the course as soon as possible starting September 27; do not wait for our on-campus meeting. There are assignments that you should get started on, and a quiz to complete before we meet. You will find our meetings unhelpful if you do not come prepared.

The weekly scheduled meeting on Fridays is required and counts towards class participatiton.  We will meet via Zoom, which you can access through the course D2L shell.
