To ensure your success in this class, please carefully review the following. If you have questions, please ask.
- DO NOT use copied material in your assignments, even if cited. I cannot grade the work of others. I do not include copied material when grading.
- The quality of the writing and critical thinking in your assignments are just as important as the content. Be sure to review all grading rubrics.
- Do not hesitate to contact me if you can’t get an assignment submitted on time. I am flexible when family or work issues prevent your attention to class. However, I must receive a notification before the due date and time.
- Ask questions. I am always available to answer questions about the reading, assignments, or anything else that concerns or frustrates you.
Please see my contact information below. I encourage you to keep this information easily accessible in case you need to contact me outside of the classroom:
I am available in the Blackboard Ultra classroom via Messages (use the envelope icon), or via email/phone/text, to offer assistance. I am usually online during the day between 9 AM and 5 PM Eastern Time. If you are not able to access the Messages section in the classroom, please feel free to text, call or email me. If you get my voicemail, I will return your call within 24 hours. If there is an emergency and someone other than you needs to contact me, please have them use the above contact information to text, call or email me. No one other than you should have access to the online classroom.
For the best experience, Google Chrome is the preferred internet browser. It is recommended you periodically clear cache, cookies, and history to ensure your browser is functioning at peak performance levels. If you need help with this or if you experience technical problems, please call 1-877-832-4867 for assistance. Technical Support is available to students 7 days a week from 5:00 am – 1:00 am MST.
For information regarding late assignments, please refer to the University’s standard late policy, which is outlined in the Academic Policies (see Books & Tools on our main course content page). Additionally, please remember that notes sent via Messages do not count toward attendance or participation. You must post participation within the graded discussions.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
See you in class!
