A note about online and distance education class structure…. While you will not be required to be online during specific hours, it is required that you log in and complete specific tasks a minimum of 3 times per week. There are assignments, quizzes, and / or discussion boards due EVERY week!! It is common to expect approximately 9 – 12 hours of work — sometimes more — on a 3 unit class each week. I am flexible with how you schedule your time in this class during each week, however I am also a big fan of deadlines, and maintaining them for the purpose of fairness and academic rigor. None of the classes discussed on this site are “self paced.”
