Instructor will send email to students on the wait list (in order of wait list) beginning a week or so before the course starts confirming that those students still wish to add the course. Add codes will be sent to those confirming their commitment to enroll. Students receiving add codes need to make every effort to enroll in the course as quickly as possible. It is possible not all wait list students will be able to add the class.

All students enrolled in this class must log into Canvas and complete the introductory assignment before end of day on the SECOND DAY of class to avoid being dropped.

To successfully complete this class, you MUST have:
1. Access to a functioning and reliable computer
2. Access to reliable Internet connection every day
3. Knowledge of basic computer, word processing, and Canvas functions

The course will utilize a number of free, electronic texts; there are no textbooks to buy. Students will need to access texts through Canvas.

It is important to remember that online classes require you not only to have time for the course hours (a 4 unit class would have 4 hours of classroom time a week) but time to complete homework in addition to those course hours. The Schedule of Classes notes that students should expect 2 hours of homework for every in-class hour. So for a 4 unit class, you would expect to need 4 hours of virtual class time, plus 8 hours of homework each week. So you should have 12 hours a week available to do the class work. While some students may not need quite that amount of time to complete course work in the online format (many will), you must understand the time commitment required to be successful in the course. There is careful reading of instructions, explanations and texts. There are required discussions and activities to participate in as well. Finally, there is the writing of papers (which includes thinking, planning, organizing, drafting and revision, and in some cases research). Effective time-management (including a realistic sense of how long various assignments actually take you to do), and some self-discipline, are needed to succeed.

1. Students need to contact instructor using their college email or the Canvas Inbox, not personal email accounts.
2. The Canvas site for the class may open a few days before class begins. An email will be sent to alert enrolled students that the class site has been opened.
3. Students are encouraged to look at the online orientation materials available on how to be successful as an online student as well as orientation to Canvas.
4. Students need to be able to submit course assignments in either pdf or docx file formats.
