    ATTACHED are the generic syllabi for the courses I teach.  I will continue to update my generic syllabi as I add courses.  If you wish to take an online course, please check the catalog or online registration for information on how to do so.  Online courses are not for everyone.  They require a particular mindset, the ability to communicate freely without the face-to-face component, and the ability to be self-directed to produce work on time and in a regular manner.  Because online courses do NOT have the face-to-face component and homework  must be done individually, many students find that they are actually MORE time consuming than regular classes.  In any case, face-to-face or online, be prepared to begin work the first day of school.  Take the online orientation, make sure to run the Browser Analyzer, email me when you have done both, check out the Online "Student Backpack", relax and ENJOY the course!
