  3. 3. ExpectationsAs mentioned in the letter sent to your parents/caregivers there areexpectations on you as a student receiving a course by Video Conferencing.These expectations are there as an intention to help you gain the mostsuccess possible from your course. If you have problems fulfilling theseexpectations we will review your suitability in participating in your course.If you are having problems please communicate them to your e-Teacher andto your school e-Dean.The expectations are…○ Keep up with your course work.○ Catch up any work you miss when attending your weekly VC lesson.○ Inform e-Dean and/or your e-Teacher if you have any problems.○ Maintains regular contact with your e-Teacher through email, text, fax,Skype or mail outside of the VC lessons.○ Work/study effectively.○ Inform your e-Teacher/e-Dean if you are going to be absent from a classahead of time. If you are ill contact your e-Teacher/e-Dean as soon aspossible to let them know and catch up the work.○ When not in your VC lesson you must be in the timetabled room for thatVC subject.○ Check in with your e-Dean if you are having any problems with yourcourse at any time.ReportingLike all school courses you will get reports.However for your VC course they might not arrive with your other schoolreports. Each course e-Teacher will do your report at the time set by theHarbourNet/Farnet Cluster. This might not coincide with your own schoolreporting times.The e-Dean of your school will send the reports home as they are receivedand place a copy into your school file.If your parents want feedback or information about your learning they cancontact your school e-Dean who will gather that information for them.
  4. 4. VC MannerseLearning takes priority over all other school activities. If something veryspecial is happening, it is important that you inform your e-Teacher.Behaviour in a VC class is much like a normal class, i.e. you do your work,behave politely etc. However there are a few quirks that you need to beaware of.The VC camera will always show the school which is loudest. This meansthat something as simple as coughing, pen clicking or rustling papers cancause the camera to switch to you. To avoid this it is a good idea to muteyour speaker unless you want to be heard or your teacher indicates that youare to leave it on.Remember there is a slight time delay between you speaking and the othershearing you. Always give others time to respond so you don’t talk over oneanother.Make sure that your eDean shows you how to use the presets and thedocument projector and computer as these may be needed during yourlesson.Arriving on time is important, as you will disturb the lesson flow by being late.However, it is important that you turn up to the lesson even if you are late.Because you only have one face-to-face class per week it is important thatyou attend if at all possible. If you cannot attend please inform your eTeacheras soon as possible and organise to catch up on the work.When things go wrong see your eDean
