  7. 7. Nettiquette <ul><li>We are all still in high school here so treating each other with respect is not optional it is required. Please remember that this is a formal educational setting and that requires specific behavior on your part. </li></ul><ul><li>I highly recommend that you visit the following website and visit the instructional boot camp Prezis on nettiquette, dangers of the Internet, technological tools and how to post and collaborate online at: </li></ul><ul><li>http:// /Tim-Hasse </li></ul>
  8. 8. An Average Week in Online Learning <ul><li>It is a common misconception that online learning is somehow easier than traditional classes. </li></ul><ul><li>The truth is that you can expect to spend: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>At least two hours on assigned readings per week </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At least four hours reading discussion posts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At least two hours responding to questions and making replies to posts by your peers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At least two hours working on class assignments </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At least two hours navigating classroom areas (depending on you Internet connection speed) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This also means it's more work for teachers too </li></ul>
  9. 9. Your Class Week Here <ul><li>On Monday read the course homepage to find out what is due that week. </li></ul><ul><li>You must answer reading questions by midnight on Thursday. </li></ul><ul><li>You must respond to two peers by midnight on Sunday. </li></ul><ul><li>The week's assignments are also due on Sunday by midnight. </li></ul><ul><li>Due dates are not set in stone as long as you communicate with me when I can expect your work to be done and why it was late. </li></ul>
  10. 10. How to Be Successful <ul><li>Check into the course often so you do not become inundated with discussion posts to read. I keep track of what you read and it will figure into your discussion grade. </li></ul><ul><li>You will be asked to regulate your learning and progress because I cannot physically hold your hand in this environment. It takes hard work and commitment. </li></ul><ul><li>Yo will not do well in this course if your idea of learning revolves around the completion of tasks. Your grade will reflect how you grow as a student, a thinker, and my perception of your effort. </li></ul>
