Team Formation Policy Some online students prefer to work with others and join a team. Team membership provides opportunities to divide tasks and put two sets of eyes on assignments. However, some students have suffered at the hands of teammates who drop without notice, submit sub-standard work, fail to stay in contact with teammates, and damage team dynamics. You may opt to join a team with only one other student. Teams are limited to only two members. No exceptions are granted. Dr. Smith strongly warns against joining a team, especially during a summer semester when some students decide before the deadline to drop that summer enrollment was a bad idea. Dr. Smith will not make deals to shorten an assignment because a team dissolved and will not attempt to get involved with team issues and place blame. He will simply disband a dysfunctional team at the first instance of dysfunction. If your team implodes for any reason or Dr. Smith disbands your team, you are expected to complete and submit by the date and time deadline the full assignment. Working Groups Are Encouraged : A “working group” consists of students who have different brands but who share the same responsibility to submit common assignments. All students are encouraged to join a “working group” to discuss exercises and assignments and to befriend and assist one another. A working group can be as large or as small as you desire. While you will be working with different brands for the campaign assignment, you can use one another as a sounding board for discuss assignments and strategies to undertake them. By comparing thoughts, approaches, and work, it is likely that higher quality work and greater learning will result. Each teammate is expected to make significant and timely contributions to the team. Students receive the lower of either the grade assigned by Dr. Smith to the project or the grade assigned to a student based on a peer evaluation score submitted by teammates. If you are experiencing issues with one or more teammates, please send a note to Dr. Smith using the “Message” tool found on the Blackboard menu.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
