Up-to-date application of the course material is achieved via class interaction, projects, and evaluation. Students are expected to read and follow all instructions as to how to format work, where to send it, and when it is to be completed. If any of the materials in the course or instructions about what to do are unclear, it is the student's responsibility to ask questions
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The final course grade will be determined using the following measurements:
* Mid Term Examination (Individual)
* 5 Open Book Quizzes.(Individual)
* Comprehensive Eighth Week Exam (Individual Proctored)
* Instructor evaluation/class participation which is made up of the following factors:
1. Posting your introduction to the conference during the first week of the course.
2. Posting comments about the videos or other related topics in the weekly discussion threads.
3. Team work - which includes joining/forming a team during week 1 and submitting the week two assignment with your team.
4. Attending class each week - meaning being active with your team. I ask each team leader to report if someone did not participate during a week because Park makes me report to it.
5. Responding to my request for teammate evaluations during week 8.

* 70% - 79% = C (700-799 points=C) * 60% - 69% = D (600-699 points=D)
* Below 60% = F (below 600 points=F)
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: This course is team based!!!! - Select 4 or 5 members to be on your team. - One member will provide me the members and team name by the end of Week One. The sooner the better, because you have an assignment due the end of the first week and it's best to submit the first week homework as a team. - Each week the team will designate one individual as the team leader. The team leader will submit the weekly homework and group work assignments. Ensure that you use the Docshare to submit your team assignments. - Each member's participation will be evaluated by their team members during the final week
