What to Expect in this Course
While there is a lot of flexibility regarding when you complete course work, please do not assume this course will be less work or easier than a traditional face to face course. It will be your responsibility to log on and complete the work on or before the due dates to be best prepared for our face to face meetings. Modules are open for a select amount of time. Some modules will overlap for a week but there are some hard deadlines, e.g., one hard deadline is prior to the midterm. All previous course work must be completed before the midterm is opened. This allows students the ability to complete work on their own schedule if it is before the deadline.
If you are still reading this and the description of workload and course content seems reasonable, then chances are you will do well in this course. You do not need to be well versed on computers to be successful.
