The facilitator's educational philosophy is that every student deserves opportunities for quality learning whether it is in brick-and-mortar or an online environment. Just as the instructor should always be attentive to the students’ needs and his/her progress in the learning environment, the student should also be attentive to his/her academic responsibilities. As an online student for several years, I learned that if the facilitator or instructor provides the motivation, the enthusiasm, and the tools to learn, the student will feel comfortable with the environment and the instructor which in turn will facilitate participation and involvement with other colleagues in class discussions.

General Policy on written assignments and discussion questions:
3. Students are to make their presence each week and respond to all assignments.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are to follow netiquette and be professional in their responses. I expect you to conduct yourselves courteously and professionally. This includes weekly discussion questions which you may agree with or rebuttals of your classmate's posting. If I have to remind you to to keep it courteous, it means I have to deduct points for that assignment. If I have to remind you more than once, it will result in further displinary action.
Topics, reading, quizzes, written assignments, and lectures are assign as per the schedule. Discussion questions are posted weekly.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
