All of these practical exercises can be conducted safely if the proper measures have been taken. In order to be sure that everyone is aware of the safety precautions and procedures, you must complete the Safety Contract in the Quizzes area by 11:59 PM CT on Wednesday of Week 1. While this quiz does not earn you points in the course, you must complete the quiz with a score of 100% before you will be allowed to complete any other quizzes or exams. Discussions Class discussions are an area where students are expected to interact with one another, sharing ideas and resources in order to enhance learning. In order to get the most out of these discussions, you must adhere to a few basic expectations. Original posts should be a complete paragraph (at least 4-5 sentences) with proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar, giving support from the readings or your own research, and be an original, completed thought. Your first post for any discussion should be completed by the end of Friday (11:59 pm Central Time) and your responses are due by the end of Sunday (11:59 pm CT). You should respond to at least two classmates posts, adding to the discussions by offering more information, an opposing point of view, posing relevant questions, or sharing relevant resources. Any responses that say little more than Good job or I agree will not receive points. Dropbox Assignments Because this is a course on photography, all of your dropbox assignments will involve uploading images. Under normal circumstances, crime scene photographers shoot in RAW format. However, this results in a very large file size that would be difficult to upload and manage in the course. Therefore, you should set your camera to the lowest resolution possible that still allows for clear and detailed photos when viewed on a computer. Since all of your assignments require multiple photos, please create a PowerPoint with each image on a separate slide and any explanations in the notes area. All

5 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 5 photos should be your own original work taken during the course of this class, be clear and in focus, and should have proper exposure and white balance. Dropbox assignments 1-7 are due each week by 11:59 pm CT Sunday and Dropbox 8 is due by 11:59 pm CT Saturday of Week 8. Weekly Quizzes During weeks 1-7, you will have a weekly quiz covering the readings, video presentations, and other required resources for the week. Each quiz will contain 10 multiple choice questions worth 2 points each. You will have 40 minutes to complete each quiz which will be due by 11:59 pm CT Sunday of each week. Final Exam The final exam will actually take place in two parts. The first part will be a 30 question exam in the Quizzes area. The questions will be a combination of multiple choice and short answer questions worth 2 points each and covering all readings and resources in the course (including Week 8). You will have 90 minutes to complete the final exam which is due by 11:59 pm CT on Saturday of Week 8. The second part of the final will be a practical exam where you will be given 10 different photographs you have to take during the week, add each photograph to a separate slide of a PowerPoint presentation, then upload the PowerPoint file to the Dropbox. Specific instructions for the exam will be made available at 12:01 AM on Monday of Week 8 and all 10 images will be due by 11:59 pm CT on Saturday. You should follow the same naming conventions and image quality criteria as on all other dropbox assignments.

You are also required to respond to at least two other students posts by 11:59 pm CT on Sunday.

6 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 6 Discussion 2: Capturing the Scene Read the Dick Warrington article provided in the Content Area, then write a short paragraph discussing how the actual process of photographing a crime scene is similar to or different from what you already thought you knew. Your original post is due by 11:59 pm CT on Friday. You are also required to respond to at least two other students posts by 11:59 pm CT on Sunday. Dropbox 1: Getting to Know Your Camera In order to be a good photographer, you have to know how to actually use your camera. First, spend some time with your camera s manual and become familiar with all of the manual settings and where to find them. Then, you need to demonstrate that you know where to find those settings and how to change them by giving me a tour of your camera. Using another camera (cell phone or point and shoot will work), take a video of yourself changing the image resolution (you should use a low resolution for assignments in this class), putting the camera in manual mode, setting the white balance, aperture, and shutter speed, then manually focusing. Shoot the video so that I can see the back of your camera as you change the settings and explain what you are doing as you go (see the Content Area for an example of what your video should look like). The end result should be 2 minutes or less and I should be able to clearly see your camera s settings while you demonstrate that you know where to change these settings in your camera. When you are finished, upload the video to YouTube (your CougarMail account includes a YouTube account), copy and paste the link to your video into a Word document, then upload that document to the dropbox. This assignment is due by 11:59 pm CT on Sunday. Dropbox 8: Alphabet Soup Project (Week 8) This assignment is not due until week 8, but it is suggested that you complete a few images each week to break up the workload. For this project, you need to take pictures of inanimate objects that represent all 26 letters of the alphabet. The objects cannot be positioned or staged but photos can be cropped and rotated. All photos should be in focus, properly exposed, and with correct white balance. (See the Content Area for a few examples.) When you have all 26 photos, create a PowerPoint with one image per slide. You should turn in one file that contains all 26 images, not 26 separate images. This assignment is due by 11:59 pm CT on Saturday of Week 8.

Violations are taken seriously in higher education and may result in a failing grade on the assignment, a grade of "F" for the course, or dismissal from the College. Collaboration conducted between students without prior permission from the instructor is considered plagiarism and will be treated as such. Spouses and roommates taking the same course should be particularly careful. All required papers may be submitted for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com for the detection of plagiarism. All submitted papers may be included in the Turnitin.com reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. This service is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use posted on the Turnitin.com site. Non-Discrimination There will be no discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, ideology, political affiliation, veteran status, age, physical handicap, or marital status. Disability Services Students with documented disabilities who may need academic services for this course are required to register with the Coordinator for Disability Services at (573) Until the student has been cleared through the disability services office, accommodations do not have to be granted. If you are a student who has a documented disability, it is important for you to read the entire syllabus before enrolling in the course. The structure or the content of the course may make an accommodation not feasible. Online Participation You are expected to read the assigned texts and participate in the discussions and other course activities each week. Assignments should be posted by the due dates stated on the grading schedule in your syllabus. If an emergency arises that prevents you from participating in class, please let your instructor know as soon as possible.

16 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 16 Attendance Policy Attendance for a week will be counted as having submitted a course assignment for which points have been earned during that week of the session or if the proctoring information has been submitted or the plagiarism quiz taken if there is no other assignment due that week. A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday (except for Week 8, when the week and the course will end on Saturday at midnight). The course and system deadlines are all based on the Central Time Zone. Cougar All students are provided a CougarMail account when they enroll in classes at Columbia College. You are responsible for monitoring from that account for important messages from the College and from your instructor. You may forward your Cougar account to another account; however, the College cannot be held responsible for breaches in security or service interruptions with other providers. Students should use for private messages to the instructor and other students. The class discussions are for public messages so the class members can each see what others have to say about any given topic and respond. Late Assignment Policy An online class requires regular participation and a commitment to your instructor and your classmates to regularly engage in the reading, discussion and writing assignments. Although most of the online communication for this course is asynchronous, you must be able to commit to the schedule of work for the class for the next eight weeks. You must keep up with the schedule of reading and writing to successfully complete the class. Discussion posts submitted late will not receive a grade. (It would be like talking to an empty room.) Quizzes automatically close at midnight on the date they are due. Quizzes may not be submitted late. This rule can be waived for unexpected and extraordinary circumstances, such as a death in the family. Losing Internet access on Sunday night is not an acceptable reason for missing a quiz or exam, as you have a week to complete it. Course Evaluation You will have an opportunity to evaluate the course near the end of the session. Course evaluations will open on Sunday of Week 5 and will remain open until Thursday of Week 7. A link will be sent to your CougarMail that will allow you to access the evaluation. Be assured that the evaluations are anonymous and that your instructor will not be able to see them until after final grades are submitted. Additional Resources Orientation for New Students This course is offered online, using course management software provided by Desire2Learn and Columbia College. The Student Manual provides details about taking an online course at Columbia College. You may also want to visit the course demonstration to view a sample course before this one opens. Technical Support If you have problems accessing the course or posting your assignments, contact your instructor, the Columbia College Helpdesk, or the D2L Helpdesk for assistance. Contact information is also available within the online course environment.

17 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e ex Online Tutoring Smarthinking is a free online tutoring service available to all Columbia College students. Smarthinking provides real-time online tutoring and homework help for Math, English, and Writing. The Writing Center can be used for writing assistance in any course. Smarthinking also provides access to live tutorials in writing and math, as well as a full range of study resources, including writing manuals, sample problems, and study skills manuals. You can access the service from wherever you have a connection to the Internet. I encourage you to take advantage of this free service provided by the college. Access Smarthinking through CougarTrack under Students->Academics->Academic Resources.
