Web-based Course Information

  • Mandatory Orientation sessions for all my courses will be completed online via D2L during the first week of the semester. Optional, yet recommended “live” Q & A sessions will also be offered via video chat.
  • More information will be provided via email approximately 1 week before the semester begins.
  • No in-person exams or meetings will be required, but all students will meet with the instructor 1-3 times during the semester via video chat. 1-2 of these sessions will be mandatory, but a variety of days and times are offered, including evenings and weekends.
  • Students should have daily access to a computer or laptop with reliable internet. Ideally, students will also have access to a webcam and head set or cell phone as well because internal speaker/microphone configurations don’t always provide good quality audio for video chats. (Trying to complete an online writing course with a tablet and portable keyboard is very tough.) 
  • Students taking my online courses should be comfortable with email and MS Word. Tutorials and/or help sheets are provided for the use of D2L, Zoom, Turnitin, and any other technology used in the course.
  • For book information and other specifics, please choose the course from the list on the right.
