Instructor Comments :
Welcome to our online course....
We are NOT using Blackboard for this course. You must check your valley college email for instructions at least one week prior to the start of classes !!!!!
Please consider carefully whether this online class is the right class for you.
To succeed in an online class you must be self-motivated and manage your time well. You need to be able to study on your own from the videos, tutorials and textbook. You must be able to read all material and documents and announcements for the course and to stay on the timeline provided by our calendar. For example, if you find yourself already "skipping" over words while reading this, then an Online course may not be the best choice for you. You must read ALL communications entirely in an Online classroom.
You will need to spend approximately 10-12 hours a week studying for this course. This is a college level course that is transferable at the University level.
You also need to have access to your own computer that has a high speed internet connection and be able to download all of the necessary plug-ins from the course website.
Microsoft Office Excel is a requirement for this course (NOT mac or other versions).
You will need to purchase an Access Code within the first two days of the course. All students must be registered into the computer element of the course by the end of the second day of class (using their Access Code), or they will be dropped from the class.
Deadlines are clearly posted for each assignment. Homework will be due each week, and there are no make-ups for homework. Homework and tests will be done on the computer.
The final will be given on campus, and each student will need to bring their student photo ID to the final to receive credit. Any student not able to come to the final in person, with their official SBVC student photo ID will not pass the class. Any student who fails the final will also fail the course.
Please do not be under the misconception that online courses are "easier" than regular courses !!! On the contrary, an online course requires more effort than a regular course.
If you feel that this will not be the best learning environment for you please drop the class. There are many other students waiting to be able to enroll into this class.
If you feel that you have the self-motivation and study skills required for this type of course then be assured that I will be with you throughout the course.
Although I will not be able to answer your questions instantaneously, I will respond in a reasonable amount of time. I will be communicating with the class on a regular basis, clearly outlining the objectives and posting to our calendar. I will also have weekly office hours on campus that you are welcome to attend.
Again, welcome to our online course M108 Introduction to Probability and Statistics
