Improper grammar and punctuation 5. Improper format For postings do this : 1. Go on line at the required time if you are motivated to discuss a particular topic 2. Discuss the topic providing 400-500 words (almost a full page) LATE WORK POLICY: No late work: Period. You are at home and have the luxury of your own time and pace. We have a lot to cover and you will get behind otherwise. I generally will give you about 7 days for the work which is more than enough time considering you don’t have 4 hours plus of lecture to listen to as you do in a live class. That should be enough time to complete the reading and quizzes. So I will not reopen modules or quizzes due to student’s error or forgetfulness. OPEN FOR BUSINESS: Please note the Modules will generally be open on Monday Evenings (11:55pm or so) and will close a week later on Monday (at 11:55 pm or so). I will then try to get comments or grades back to you within that next 2 weeks. Special Note: the final exam will be open for less time - Consult the dates on page 5. Be aware of this as there will be no reopens on any exams or quizzes. SPECIAL TESTING: If you need special accommodations for the exams, please see me after class during the first week of the quarter. You are also responsible for turning in a “special accommodations sheet” (see DRC staff) to me a week before each exam. TECHNICAL SUPPORT: If you need help you can ask fro help at the helpdesk by emailing them at [email protected] or call and leave a voicemail at 530-543-4660 ext. 400. Be aware that they may take a while to get back to you. Please inform me if you are having issues in addition. There will also be a short class available for students who may have never been in an online class or who may not feel comfortable with the Etudes format. If you are having problems, it is your responsibility to contact the instructor so that other arrangements can be made to assistance with the completion of assignments, discussions etc. My cell phone is 775-846-9246, my number at the college is 530-541-4660 X567 and my email is [email protected] .

    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.
