What do I need to bring to class? You will need a pair of headphones, the course textbooks, and an external drive throughout the semester.
Are points deducted for late submissions? No, so long as they are submitted by the final due date noted on the assignments page. Please upload work as you complete it. Also, note that students who are receiving a 50% or lower at midterm will receive an administrative withdrawal (ADW). It is in your interest to keep pace with the suggested completion dates. I will input a zero for exercises not received at the suggested completion dates. I will raise the grade once an assignment is submitted.
Can I revise assignments? Yes.
Can I work ahead of schedule? Yes.
Where can I find my grades? I will create a document and place it in your Google Drive folder. The document will list your current grade and will include comments and suggested revisions.
What happens to work saved on the computers in the lab? When you log off or the computers are shut down, all files that you have saved on the local drives will be deleted. It is important that you save work to an external device in addition to uploading the work to the Google Drive.
May I print the instructions and tutorials? If you wish to print the instructions and tutorials, please do so outside of the lab. The tutorials have embedded videos which will not print. Also, I may make updates to instructions as necessary. You are encouraged to toggle between the software application and the website as you work on exercises. Some students prefer to view the tutorials through their phones or other devices.
Will I have access to this website after the class ends? Yes, but you will lose access to the Blackboard course site.
