short nature of this .5 credit class, 20% of the class is approximately

registered for the class but have not logged into the class site

time, and 6 to 18 hours for study time and assignment completion. You
will be expected to participate each week, this
is not an independent-study class. You do have
a choice as to the day and time during the week in which you choose
to participate, however, you will have to submit your work each
week if you want to pass the course. Plan to be online
at least twice per week to do the readings and complete assignments.
- Textbooks: No books are required for this course;
a recommended resources list will be given in class. Lectures
and internet readings will be provided in class.
Is an online course right for you?
Online courses are more convenient than traditional face-to-face courses,
but they are usually more difficult and require more time and effort. You
should be comfortable using the internet, managing files on your
computer, and have good time management skills. Since this class
is complete in six weeks, you will need to be ready to go on the
first day of class.
- You must have a reliable internet connection and a backup plan just
in case your first connection is not available.
- You will be participating in class and submitting all assignments
in writing. You will need to know how to use your word processing
program (especially the spell-check function) and you should feel
comfortable expressing yourself in writing.
- You should know how to use your internet browser program, including
making the necessary adjustments as outlined in the System Requirements
tab on the main Etudes gateway page.
