Reflection paper will be required. Class Participation: An online course will require at least as much commitment of time and energy as a regular course, with the added importance of self-motivation. The standard time recommendation for a college course is two hours of outside work and study for every hour spent in class. Students taking this course at Chattanooga State are in class for six hours per week (lecture and lab), which means another 12 hours per week in study and completing work. This seems like a lot of time, and it is. However, using available time effectively can be more important than the actual number of hours spent. While there is no requirement for scheduled blocks of time spent on this class, the successful student will devote some time to the class nearly every day. Late Policy:

7 Students should monitor the course calendar and stay abreast of due dates. Students should pay close attention to the discussion boards and class announcements. Course Ground Rules: The following two statements (1., 2.) were derived from the TBR System-wide Student Rules document, released January 2012: These rules are kept by the Secretary of State.

Specifically, students should refrain from inappropriate and/or offensive language, comments and actions. Academic Integrity/Academic Honesty: In their academic activities, students are expected to maintain high standards of honesty and integrity. Academic dishonesty is prohibited.

8 Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of academic dishonesty are prohibited.

Other Course Rules: Students are expected to: Participate in all aspects of the course Communicate with other students Learn how to navigate in D2L Keep abreast of course announcements Use the assigned course management (D2L) address rather than a personal address Address technical problems immediately by contacting or Observe course netiquette at all times. Guidelines for Communications: Discussions: Always include a subject line. Remember without facial expressions some comments may be taken the wrong way. Be careful in wording your s. Use of emoticons might be helpful in some cases. Use standard fonts. Do not send large attachments without permission. Special formatting such as centering, audio messages, tables, html, etc. should be avoided unless necessary to complete an assignment or other communication. Respect the privacy of other class members Review the discussion threads thoroughly before entering the discussion. Be a lurker then a discussant.
