Academic Honesty

Please send me a Moodle inbox message when you do not understand something or need me to clarify or answer a question. I check my Moodle messages daily, so this is the most effective way to communicate.

Ask for HelpWhen Needed

I often get student questions or complaints that could have been prevented by simply READING the class information.

Online students often encounter technical issues that aren't a problem in a traditional classroom. Don't let these issues be the reason you miss a class deadline. Dont' wait until the last minute!

Don'tProcrastinate

Read Carefully

Check your Moodle inbox regularly. This is how I will communicate with you during the course.
