Online courses have special features that allow you to see your progress 24/7. Access is through the “My Grades” link.
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. Remember, if you wait until the final day or two to submit many of your discussion posts, your grade will be penalized.
