Late Submission of Course Materials:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The course is offered online using the approved Park University platform. The course is different than many online classes because it involves writing an extensive term paper in the APA format. You will be doing reading and writing primarily by yourself, but with close contact and guidance by your instructor.
You have some work with your classmates in the discussion area for each class week. In one portion of the discussion area, you should specifically respond to the question based on the assigned text and outside readings. In the second area, which counts for class participation, you are expected to reply or comment on question responses made by your classmates.
In order to satisfactorily complete this online class, you should plan to spend at least twelve hours each class week. I would suggest three hours be spent on specific readings, two hours on the discussion question responses, three hours on the drop-box assignments, and four hours working on research. This is a three-semester upper-division level university course. Please spend the time needed to complete all assignments on time in the course.
Class weeks begin on Monday and end on Sunday. You will be graded on the work you completed by the end of Sunday. You will be graded on your participation in the discussion question areas on Sunday. Because of the difficulty of the tasks required in this course, you must stay current or you will not finish your assignments within the eight-week time frame.
Assignments should be prepared in MS Word and not other formats. If you plan to send an assignment by FAX because of temporary unavailability of the internet, you must inform the instructor, Use of the U. S. Postal service for submission of assignments is not authorized.
The Park University e-mail system is the official e-mail of record for the course and should be used for course communications. Note that many faculty members and Park University offices do not open or respond to private e-mails sent from private e-mail addresses so as not to risk importing viruses.
Online Course Policies
1. For submission of work/assignments, a class week is defined as the period of time between Monday, 12:01 A.M., CST, and Sunday, 11:59 P.M, CST. The first week begins on the first day of the term/semester. Assignments scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed and submitted by the posted due-date.
2. Online Communication and Participation: Be sure to fully identify yourself by name and course number in e-mails sent to your instructor or other class members. Online discussion and comment areas in the course are public messages and will be viewable by the entire class or other assigned Park University group members.
Online instructors will check e-mail on a daily basis and will respond to course-related questions within 24 – 48 hours.
3. Observation of “Netiquette”: All online communications need to be composed with fairness, honesty, and tact. Spelling and grammar are important in an online course and what you put into the course reflects on your level of professionalism. Online references that discuss writing online: http://www.goto.intwg.com and netiquette http://www.albion.com/netiquette/corerules.html.
4. Technical Problems: If you experience computer difficulties such as help in downloading a browser or plug-in, or you need help logging into the course, or if you experience any errors or problems while in your online course, click on the button in your online classroom and find/click on the helpdesk menu item, or call the helpdesk for assistance. If the issue is preventing you from timely submission or completion of assignments, immediately contact your instructor by e-mail.
