Classroom Rules of Conduct:
A class week is
defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins
the first day of the semester and ends midnight (Central Standard Time) the
following Sunday. Assignments scheduled for completion during a class week
should be completed as specified in the syllabus. Writing assignments and
formal papers should be completed and successfully submitted so they are in my hands on the due date.
Online Etiquette: All your Online communications need to be
composed with fairness, honesty and tact. Spelling and grammar are very
important in an Online course. What you put into an Online course reflects
on your level of professionalism. Netiquette is a set of guidelines for
how individuals communicate over the Internet. The important concept here is
that students respect one another. http://www.albion.com/netiquette/
