Instructor Feedback Schedule The Instructor will log in to the course during the week to monitor the weekly Discussion area. Feedback will be provided via the comments in the My Grades area, the Discussion area, and/or the Announcements page. You can expect your weekly assignment grades to be posted within 10 calendar days of a due date. Instructor feedback and explanation is provided whenever full credit is not achieved. Depending on the nature of the feedback, Instructor responses may be posted to the Discussion area or included in the My Grades area. The goal of your Instructor is to act as a discussion and learning facilitator rather than a lecturer. The Instructor will not respond to every posting by every individual, so please feel free to ask your Instructor if you would like some personal feedback on a particular assignment posting or any time you have any questions regarding your assignments or your grade. Course Procedures 1. All class Discussions take place in the weekly Discussion areas. 2. You are encouraged to post course-related questions to the Contact the Instructor area, as they may be of interest to all; however, if your question is urgent, it is often best to e-mail the Instructor. If your e-mailed question is thought to be of benefit to all, it may be responded to by the Instructor via e-mail to all or posted as an announcement. 3. Instructor feedback on content and writing issues that is thought to be of benefit to the entire class may be posted to the Contract the Instructor; however, most personal critique will be done privately in My Grades. Be sure to check the My Grades area for comments every week, even if you received full credit. 4. Please feel free to use the Class Café to initiate and participate in conversations not directly related to the course. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know other students better.
