CLASS STRUCTURE

While this is an online class, it is not totally self-paced. We will go through the material together, with weekly lessons, readings, assignments, and online discussions. (You can do the work anytime during the week, but it is due no later than 8:00 p.m. each Wednesday.)

 

ORIENTATION MEETING

A mandatory on-campus orientation meeting is Wednesday, February 26, 6:30-8:00 p.m., in Room 1051 (the "Electronic Classroom" upstairs in the Cabrillo Library). The purposes of this class meeting are to get acquainted, review all course requirements, get hands-on experience with the online course environment you'll be using, and complete your initial assignments.

 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
