Various information may be located on this website. Above you will find links regarding my ONLINE class sections. Click on the “Courses” link in the above menu bar to locate specific class information.
Online Class Information: Online classes will open on Canvas (the Los Rios Learning Management System) on the first weekday of the semester. For more information about orientation meeting/s, please click on the “Online Course Info” link above for specific class details.
Information About Adding An Online Class: If the class is full, I strongly recommend adding yourself to the official wait list for the class. Students on the official wait list will be contacted a few days prior to the beginning of the term with instructions to add the class.
Looking to add one of these classes, but no room on the official wait list?? Contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) during the first week of classes to inquire about adding. Please note that after the first week of instruction, no additional permission numbers will be available. Note also that being registered on the wait list is NOT a guarantee that you will be able to add the class.
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 forums 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.”
To log on to online class/es once you have officially registered with the college for the course/s (NOTE: online classes will not be available until the beginning of the semester) — reference the online help for students Resources for Students Using Los Rios eLearning Canvas — http://canvas.losrios.edu .
New To Canvas? Los Rios Colleges are in the process of adopting a new online delivery system — Canvas. This is a system that many California Community Colleges are adopting — hopefully promoting a more consistent “feel” between colleges.
