Announcements : The professor will communicate any important updates to the course through the Canvas Announcements tool. These will be visible on the course’s main page, and you will also receive an email in you FAU account. Email : Please use your FAU email account to communicate with the professor. I am available to discuss ANY problems, questions or concerns about the course. I am here to help you and welcome the opportunity to talk with you! Please notify me of your need for an appointment by letting me know by email. Using email is the preferred method to contact your instructor. Except for Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, I will respond to your emails generally within 24 hours. Phone : I will be available by phone (561 – 297 – 1001) during my regular office hours You may also reach me through Skype (claudia.dunlea2) if you want to. Technical Problem Resolution Procedure Should a student run into a technical problem that prevents him/her from completing an assignment, he/she should contact the FAU Online Helpdesk for assistance in resolving the problem (Complete a Help Desk ticket .) If the problem cannot be resolved in time to meet an assessment deadline, the student is to contact the professor immediately through e-mail. The professor will work with the student to establish an alternate course of action. The failure to report a technical problem immediately will result in a zero for the assessment or assignment. (In other words, if the assessment assignment is due on Sunday at 10 p.m. and you run into a computer problem, you need to contact the professor on Sunday, not the following Wednesday to report the problem.) Student Accessibility Services (SAS): In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), students who require reasonable accommodations due to a disability to properly execute coursework must register with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) —in Boca Raton, SU 133 (561-297-3880); in Davie, LA 203 (954-236-1222); or in Jupiter, SR 110 (561-799-8585) —and follow all SAS procedures.
