Attendance, Participation, and Late PolicyAttendance:"Attendance" and participation are required. You will be expected to participate in ongoing discussions of the lesson topics and to interact with other students and your instructor regularly. It is expected that you will demonstrate a positive attitude and courtesy toward other participants in the discussion and observe good discussion netiquette. Be sure to read and observe the following procedures:•You are a guest in the instructor's classroom, so be sure to observe the class rules. •Practice manners and civility, and be polite and respectful of your instructor and classmates in all your communications. •Respect your instructor, and be on time in your work submissions. •Keep your instructor informed of your status. •Address your instructor as Professor or Doctor. •Use correct grammar and punctuation in all your communication ('Dear Professor xxx' not 'Hey'). •Accept your instructor's feedback and learn from it. In the online environment, problems associated with power outages, networks being down, and ISP troubles inevitably result in legitimate reasons for delays, however, you should still be prepared to deliver your work by the stated deadlines. If you have a problem, let your instructor know as soon as possible. The student who repeatedly turns in late work will be subject to penalties.Time Commitment:Taking an online course is not easier or faster. On the contrary, it will take as much time as taking a face-to-face class or more. If you normally go to class 3 hours per week per course, you will need to devote that same amount of time to your online course. In addition to online time, you should spend time studying and working with course materials several hours per week offline. It will be helpful to set aside regular study time when you can work uninterrupted. Offline time could be spent in composing messages to post online, reading, studying, and working homework problems.The amount of time it will take you to complete the work for the course will depend on many factors, which will vary with each individual. Students can expect to spend anywhere from 8 - 15 hours per week on this course. Consult the course Calendar and your instructor to be sure you are on schedule, keeping upwith the material and taking quizzes on time.As a general rule, in this course you will be expected to:•Log in regularly to check messages from your instructor and other students. •Check the Calendar for announcements from your instructor. •Study, read online materials, and work all assigned problems for each lesson. •Complete all course work and assignments in the time allowed.
