I will use brevity to describe my philosophy for this
particular course. I feel learning should be enjoyable/fun and
possess certain ingredients, which will challenge students each
week. We will accomplish this through the following methods: Weekly
threaded discussions will serve as our means to discuss issues and interact
with each other. I believe that a healthy level of weekly discussion
will make the course enjoyable and provide valuable insight to one
another. Homework and quizzes will serve as the weekly measurement
to keep everyone current and up-to-date with the course. The core
assessment provides the student an opportunity to explore a specific entity of
the Department of Homeland security, which will provide the necessary real life
correlation to the course learning outcomes. The final exam will evaluate your understanding of the material and provide
a logical conclusion for the course. I expect everyone to therefore
enjoy the next eight weeks and leave the course feeling challenged with a
significant grasp of homeland security.

This course is offered on-line, over the Internet, using the
eCollege course delivery system. Students are expected to devote a minimum of

defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins
the first day of the semester and ends midnight the following Sunday.
Assignments scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed by
Sunday of the week assigned. Written papers should be completed and
successfully submitted so that they are in my hands on the due
date. If you ever have problems transmitting your assignments to me,
telephone me immediately, and we'll get the problem solved. Students are
