Utilize email/office visits when you have questions about the class. I tryto make myself as accessible as possible to address your questions and concerns. However, conferring with me “after the fact” (in other words, once you’ve received your grade) is not the ideal time for addressing concerns and bringing it to my attention that you did not understand the material. My goal is for you to gain knowledge in this class, so take this opportunity to learn as much as possible to assist you in the future!!Course information including the syllabus, announcements, assignments, and grades will be housed on Moodle.

Students are expected to regularly check Moodle for course information.Note that Moodle tracks user log-in/log-out. As a result, if the electronic records as a part of Moodle does not have a record of you logging-in to complete an assignment by the due date, then, as per the records, you will not receive credit for the specific assignment.
