No Late Midterms, Reflections, or Finals will be accepted. Keeping a backup copy of each project you submit for your own reference is important. It allows you the option to revise your project in response to professor  ’s comments or grade. Extensions of time require professor approval, and must be requested, in writing, prior to the due date  for the project. Writing Assignments: All written assignments (personal essay, research reports, journal entries/reflections, midterm, etc ) must be double spaced.  All research papers must include references written in APA or MLA.

Keeping a backup copy of each project you submit for your own reference is important. It allows you the option to revise your project in response to professor  ’s comments or grade. Extensions of time require professor approval, and must be requested, in writing, prior to the due date  for the project. DISCUSSION BOARD POSTINGS Topics for discussion are posted weekly. All responses must be posted by the due date  for each assignment. As your professor, I believe in the importance of shared experience and building knowledge together. I believe that you'll learn as much from each other as you will from me. Therefore, I have included discussions as an integral part of the course. Our goal is that you will get to know and learn from the other participants just as if you were in a face to face class with them. Topics will be posted in the Discussion area for you to respond to. Your response should include your opinions, experiences, ideas, or suggestions. You will post a minimum of 3 responses/replies for each discussion topic.    ONLINE COMMUNICATION WITH THE PROFESSOR  In distance education, a professor is required to respond to email messages and discussion board postings within 24 hours. However, I will make every attempt to check my Email and read the discussion board postings several times a day. I realize that students are logging on at different times of the day; therefore, I will be logging on in the morning, afternoon, and evening between 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm. WEB CONFERENCE  I will be scheduling an online, live classroom meetings (web conference) throughout the semester. The live classroom sessions will be recorded and can be viewed by students who are unable to attend the class meeting. To participate in a live classroom discussion, you will need access to a computer with speakers, a headset, or a telephone. If you do not have access to any of these resources, you will be able to use the chat feature in the web conference. More information will be sent via Email.
