3. COURSE COMMUNICATION
Announcements will be posted in GOOGLE CLASSROOM on a regular basis. They will appear in GOOGLE CLASSROOM when you log in and/or will be sent to you directly through your preferred method of notification from GOOGLE CLASSROOM. Please make certain to check them regularly, as they will contain any important information about upcoming projects or class concerns.
In this course, we will use emails for private to send information regarding class information. Please check your messages regularly. When submitting messages, please do the following:
Put a subject in the subject box that describes the email content with your name, week, and message subject. For example, YOURNAMEWK2ASSIGNMENT.
Send email only to my personal email account.
Do not send messages asking for general information about the class, please post those in the GOOGLE CLASSROOM post.
Do not submit your assignments by message.
Make certain to check your messages frequently.
In online courses, it is normal to have many questions about things that relate to the course, such as
clarification about assignments, course materials, or assessments. Please post these in the GOOGLE CLASSROOM post. This is an open forum, and you are encouraged to give answers and help each other.
Discussion Forums are a way for you to engage with each other about the course content. Each lesson module will have a question that links to a forum. To get full credit for each discussion, you will need to post a thoughtful, well-written response to the question and respond to a classmate’s answers.
VIRTUAL OFFICE HOURS
Twice a week I will be available for virtual office hours – one morning and one evening session using
GOOGLE CLASSROOM post.
During the week (M-F) I will check EMAILS and monitor the discussion board several times a day. If you have a concern and send me a message, you can expect a response within one day.
When posting on the discussion boards and chat rooms it is important to understand how to interact with one another online, and netiquette. You can read more about the rules of netiquette at http://www.albion.com/netiquette/index.html.
