Course Requirements

Check your ANGEL e
-
mail, grades, and discussions for current updates, deadlines, and progress
reports. I send major announcements via course e
-
mail. CHECK your
e
-
mail at least every other
day. It's very important.

Students should have regular access to a computer that is connected to the Internet.

It is strongly
recommended that students have

a broadband (high
-
speed) internet connection such as

DSL or a
cable mod
em. When taking on
-
line quizzes and exams (or viewing on
-
line video), students
should have an internet connection that is stable and will not drop their connection.



Students

without a stable high
-
speed internet connection

should consider making arrangeme
nts
to take on
-
line quizzes and exams at one of the St. Petersburg College libraries (or a similar
facility) where a stable

high
-
speed internet connection is available.

Internet Explorer is the
preferred

browser to use to access course materials.


Because

of the use of teams in many classes, we require a common format for all students to
share documents. Students

are required to submit assignments and share team documents in
Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) formats. No other formats (such as .RTF
, .WPS,
etc) will be accepted unless specially stated for an individual assignment.

Grading Policy

Here is how the class is graded:

10 Quizzes x 10 points each = 100 pts

7 Discussions x 10 points each = 70 pts

4 Written Assignments x 30 points each = 120 pts

Total =

290 pts

You will have one o
pportunity to take each quiz. It is open book and of fixed duration. Generally
the quizzes will be set for 60 minutes maximum. You must submit your

assignments by the due
date. If you turn in any

work late, I will give you a maximum of HALF credit. I will
accept late
assignments up to one week after the due date, but remember
-

you will only get half credit for
them.

Attendance Policy

SPC requires online and blended instructors to monitor student attendance/participation in
educational activities on a weekl
y basis. Students are required to participate in their online
course each week as verified by activity within the ANGEL Learning Management System, such
as a discussion board posting, submission of an assignment, messaging your instructor, chat, and
comple
tion of polls, quizzes or tests. When you exceed two weeks of unexcused or otherwise
undocumented absence, you will either be administratively withdrawn by the instructor if this
occurs before the 60 percent point in the term, or be given a grade of WF if
it occurs later in the
term. If you are in your third attempt at completing a course, you will be given a WF grade at
any point in the term that you exceed the maximum number of weeks absent. Excused absences,
of course, will not count against you.

Academ
ic Integrity

Academic honesty and plagiarism falls under the Academic Honesty Policy of the college. I
adhere to SPC's rules and policies on plagiarism and academic dishonesty. The College of
Computer and Information Technology has implemented a zero “0” t
olerance policy for
academic dishonesty and if the student is in violation an “F” the course will be applied.

Disability Policy

If you wish to receive special accommodations as a student with a documented disability, please
make an appointment with the Lea
rning Specialist on the Clearwater, Tarpon Springs, or St.
Petersburg sites. If you have a documented hearing loss, please contact the Program for the Deaf
at 791
