The

Moser

is

committed

to

providing

a

learning

environment

which

extends

beyond

and

is

designed

specifically

to

meet

the

needs

of

its

students

their

employers

About

Blended

Learning


Blended

learning

is

the

integration

of

different

learning

environments
:

mainly

the

online

format

with

the

face
-
to
-
face

format,

but

may

also

include

mobile

learning
.

Blended

learning,

also

referred

to

as

hybrid

learning,

relies

on

both

the

advantages

of

digital/technology

innovation

and

the

methods

of

face
-
to
-
face

instruction
.

At

Moser

College,

we

use

blended

learning

by

combining

asynchronous

online

classroom

sessions

with

a

face
-
to
-
face

classroom

environment
.

Financial Aid Information

Applying

for

Financial

Aid



A

college

education

is

one

of

the

largest

financial

investments

a

family

will

make
.

We

believe

that

an

education

from

Benedictine

University

will

provide

valuable

returns

throughout

a

student's

lifetime
.

The

Office

of

Financial

Aid

is

dedicated

to

helping

students

and

their

families

make

a

Benedictine

University

education

affordable
.

We

view

the

process

of

financing

an

education

as

a

partnership
.

Although

the

student

and

his/her

family

have

primary

responsibility

for

meeting

college

costs,

Benedictine

University,

as

well

as

the

federal

and

state

governments

have

a

variety

of

financial

aid

programs

available

to

students

who

need

financial

assistance
.

Financial Aid

Types

Financial

Benedictine

recipients

must

maintain

satisfactory

academic

progress

in

the

published,

for

Recipients
.




After completing the financial aid application process, the student will receive a
financial aid award notification letter. The award letter will include the
program(s) that the student is eligible to receive and the award amount(s).


Grants/Scholarships

-

Grants and scholarships are considered to be gift
assistance. This means the awards do not have to be repaid.


Loans

-

Loans are considered to be a form of self
-
help assistance. Loan programs
provide funds for educational purposes and are paid back with interest.


Employment

-

Part
-
time jobs on campus are available to students through the
University and Federal Work
-
Study program. Students working on campus
receive a bi
-
weekly paycheck.

About Netiquette

What

is

Netiquette?


"Netiquette"

stands

for

"Internet

Etiquette",

and

refers

to

the

set

of

practices

which

help

to

make

the

online

experiences

pleasant

for

all

involved
.

As

you

might

expect,

netiquette,

like

other

forms

of

etiquette,

is

about

courtesy,

manners,

codes

of

behavior,

protocols

and

respect
.

Netiquette

primarily

focuses

on

how

we

interact

with

one

another

online,

by

being

aware

of
:

our

use

of

language,

others’

cultural

background,

conventional

norms,

and

other

behaviors
.

Below

you

will

find

guidelines

concerning

the

basics

of

online

interaction
.

If

it

isn’t

something

you

would

say

or

do

in

the

face
-
to
-
face

classroom,

it

is

probably

inappropriate

in

the

online

class

as

well
.

5.
Copy

the

minimum

number

of

people



it

is

tempting

to

send

“email”

or

“message

blasts”

because

it

is

easier

for

the

poster,

but

it

is

not

easier

for

the

reader


For more information please review
Netiquette

by Virginia Shea

Inappropriate

Online

Usage


1.
Avoid

“flaming”



flaming

is

sending

offensive,

insulting

or

criticizing

messages
.

This

happens

more

often

online

then

in

face
-
to
-
face

interaction,

because

there

is

an

illusion

of

anonymity
.


2.
Flaming

is

neither

productive

nor

appropriate

for

the

learning

environment

3.
Always

avoid

flaming

when

it

comes

to

content

and

opinions,

but

also

avoid

it

when

it

comes

to

grammar,

punctuation

and

spelling

corrections

4.
Avoid

using

CAPS

if

possible

and

never

type

messages

in

ALL

CAPS



this

is

considered

yelling

and

is

often

seen

as

a

form

of

aggression

5.
Use

emoticons

(

:
)

,

:
(

,

:
-
)

)

sparingly

and

avoid

the

use

of

JK
,

BRB
,

LOL

and

other

text

language

Confidentiality

and

Privacy

posting

are

forms

Benedictine’s

Library

Resources



Benedictine University Libraries strive to provide the resources for all of your academic and research
needs. Providing access to over 120 databases, 200,000 books and eBooks, and helpful librarians 7
days a week, we are here to assist you in person and online.


The primary mission of the Benedictine University Library is to provide library resources and services
that support the Benedictine University community and meet its academic and research needs. To
support our mission, the Library has made provisions for all students to gain access to important
academic resources through the Benedictine Library Website. As you begin your academic journey
please take note of these key concepts that will affect that access:



Entry into academic databases and most Library resources must be made through the Benedictine
Library Website at
www.ben.edu/library



Within one week of your official enrollment your patron information will be automatically entered
into the library system, where once entered, you will be able to check out books and access
databases


When off
-
campus you will be prompted by authentication software (a proxy server) to provide
your Library ID number and last name to access article databases and request books. This software
proxy server confirms that you are a current Benedictine University student and thus allowed
access


Your Library ID number is a combination of the Benedictine Library prefix
2281100

and
your
seven
-
digit student ID number

(also called your “b” number). Thus
2281100XXXXXXX
is
the Library ID number

with X’s being the seven digit student number. This number is prominently
located just below the barcode on your Benedictine ID card


For further information on any aspect of Library resources and access please call or write the
Benedictine Library Reference Desk at 630
-
829
-
6057 or
libref@ben.edu
. Please take note of
Library hours and staff directory located on the Library Website under About the Library and feel
free to contact us about any concern or need you might have

Assignments



In

Class

Discussion
:

(suggested

activity)

Discuss

the

origins

of

Apple

and

its

turbulent

history

as

a

company
.

Apple’s

key

goal

was

to

make

computers

accessible

to

ordinary

people
.

Instead

of

writing

commands

in

computer

code,

Apple

owners

invented

a

mouse

to

click

on

easily

recognizable

icons



for

example,

a

trash

can

and

file

folders
.

Other

companies

were

quick

to

copy

Apple’s

competitive

advantage,

including

Microsoft
.

But

Apple

did

not

find

booming

success

until

the

advent

of

iPod
.

Why?





In

Class

Activities
:

(suggested

activity)

Role
-
play

the

“Broadway

Café”

scenario
:

You

are

the

owner

of

the

Broadway

Café



a

small

“ma

and

pa

coffee

shop”

that

competes

with

Starbucks
TM
,

Caribou
TM

and

Dunkin

Donuts
TM
.

Originally

the

café

did

not

utilize

technology
.

How

can

you

use

technology

to

improve

the

quality

and

profitability

of

your

product?

How

can

the

Broadway

Cafe

take

advantage

of

e
-
business

strategies

if

it

wants

to

remain

competitive?
