Web-based Course Information

  • Mandatory Orientation sessions for all my courses will be completed online via D2L during the first week of the semester. Optional, yet recommended "live" Q & A sessions will also be offered via Collaborate Ultra.
  • More information will be provided via email approximately 1 week before the semester begins.
  • No in-person exams or meetings will be required, but all students will meet with the instructor 2-3 times during the semester via mandatory video chat.
  • Students should have daily access to a computer or laptop with reliable internet and webcam capabilities. Ideally, students will also have access to a head set or cell phone as well because internal speaker/microphone configurations don't always provide good quality audio for video chats. (Trying to complete an online course with a tablet and portable keyboard is a BAD idea.) 
  • Students taking my online courses should be comfortable with email and MS Word. Tutorials and/or help sheets are provided for the use of D2L, Collaborate Ultra, Turnitin.com, Respondus Monitor with Lockdown Browser, and any other technology used in the course. 
  • For book information and other specifics, please choose the course from the list on the left.
