Don't feel overwhelmed about learning online. While it is a different way of learning from the traditional classroom, there are lots of benefits to being a more independent learner. Below are suggestions for working in our online class.
Print your calendar!
The calendar is located in the Course Information box on the right side of our main class homepage. Look for blue links titled 18, 16, or 14 weeks. The calendar is located at the bottom of the syllabus.

Sometimes there is no substitute for a question and answer session with your instructor. Our weekly online class sessions are Mondays at 6:15 p.m. This is a time to practice assignments and answer questions directly. I will also have a live office hour every week on Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m.
To access our weekly class chat, click on the link in the Course Information box on the right side of our main class page.
