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, as long as it is turned in by the weekly deadline.)
A mandatory on-campus orientation meeting is Thursday, September 3, 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.
This class is accessed through Blackboard, Cabrillo's online course environment. In addition, you need to have an email address. (If you don't already have one, they are available for free from Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)
For more information contact instructor Phil Van Loon by email or phone (429-1958).
