Important Course Information

Students will be required to complete assigned readings, online forum discussions, lessons, and demonstrations each week. The practice demonstrations and lessons each week will contribute to building the final project. Therefore it is imperative to check in regularly through out the week and complete each weeks assignments. If you miss one, you may miss an important and required element for your final project.

Students are expected to know how to save files, copy and paste text, change file formats, send and receive email and attachments, and navigate the internet.

Students are responsible for their computer use and accessibility. Should your computer fail you are required to seek alternative computer use through a Gavilan College computer lab, or other viable source. computer problems are not legitimate reasons for not getting work turned in on time. Allow yourself plenty of time to get the work done well ahead of any deadline.    

There will be weekly due dates, but students may log on to complete work at any time during the week.

Attendance Policy

The college policy on attendance, as stated in the catalog is:

"students missing one more class hour than the unit value for a particular course, without making prior arrangements may, at the instructor's option, be dropped without possibility of credit."

Since this is an online course, and we don't have meeting times, the onus is on you. You'll have to show up in the class and finish the assignments and project and quizzes in order to get a decent grade. I strongly encourage you to keep up with the assignments each week.

We are learning a lot of different concepts that build on one another and it is very difficult to catch up if you fall behind.
