Grade Book:

Online courses have special features that allow you to see your progress 24/7. Access is through the “Grades” nugget on the course homepage, or you can access the grade book through the “Report” tab.

Attendance Policy:

You are required to logon and participate a minimum of 6 times in each graded discussion forum. The grade you earn on each discussion forum will include this criterion.

How much time will you spend on this course – and how often should you log on?

Expect to spend a total of about between 120 – 150 hours on this course – which includes textbook reading, online website research, report writing and online discussion. I expect you to log-on and actively participate in each online discussion forum on a minimum of six different days. To achieve an “A” or a “B” in this course, you need to submit 13 or more high quality posts to the discussion forum. Remember, if you wait until the final day or two to submit many of your discussion posts, your grade will be penalized.
