Motivation and Discipline
- The courses may be worked on anytime, anywhere, 24/7. However, all assignments/ quizzes have to be in by the last day of Finals week (see the WebCT calendar for the exact date for this semester.)
- You alone are responsible for reading the course content and submitting tests/quizzes and assignments. No one will be checking up on you.
- You alone are responsible for keeping up with the discussion postings. Unless there is a problem, I do not intrude upon your "conversations."
- Please email me if you have any problems with the course- firstname.lastname@example.org . Please --do not use the WebCT discussion boards or WebCT mail to report a problem because I only check them once a week. For a timely answer, use the email address above (also found on the course homepages and the syllabus.)
- The course is always more interesting if you engage the other students in conversation on the discussion boards. Don't just "say something" and then flee. Talk to someone.
- IMPORTANT - In order to get your points for the discussion, you must submit a "discussion assignment." This provides me with a space in which to enter your points. The instructions for this assignment are found by followng the "agora assignment" link in the left hand navigation bar.
- Quiz/test grades are posted as soon as you submit a quiz or test. Assignment grades are posted as soon as I have graded them. (I grade papers once a week or whenever there are 5 or more assignments submitted.)
- Do the practice quizzes/uploading assignments as soon as possible so that we can deal with any problems that might crop up. That's what they are there for--to anticipate and solve problems before you actually start the course--so use them. The points for these two practice activities are not added to your final grade--the points are there just to give you an idea of how well you did. However--you only have the first two weeks of class to use them--after that, the links go dead.
- If you have any technical problems, don't hesitate to email Sauk's technical support staff-- email@example.com .
- Students always do better when they follow some kind of a schedule and don't wait until the end of the semester to try and hand everything in. There is a suggested schedule posted for the course.
