Course Policies 1 Attendance It is not possible to receive an above-average grade (average = C) without participating in all or almost all weekly discussion threads, and passing all quizzes over weekly readings. Grading criteria Discussion Thread Submissions = 35% Quizzes/Midterm = 30% Blog (5%) + related thematic project (10%) = 15% Final exam = 20% Final Course Grade: % A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D- Ground Rules for Online Conduct Refer to the DMACC Student Handbook: s must be sent to me from your DMACC address, not any other personal address. Be sure you have regular access to your DMACC , and that your inbox isn t full. Please indicate the specific course in which you are enrolled in your subject line. s should be reserved only for concerns particular to you. For questions or concerns of general interest to yourself and fellow classmates, please use the running discussion thread ( Ask Away ) within your course (in each week s Content Folder); there you may post questions and comments such as students commonly ask at the start and end of classroom sessions. Netiquette: As in a physical classroom, please observe common civility in your discussion postings. Read fellow students postings with care and respond with courtesy. While your postings to the discussion threads need not be so polished as a formal essay, they should be more academic in structure and considered in content than an informal chat among friends in, say, text messages. Part of your discussion grades will depend upon your correct spelling and grammar, logical organization, and particular evidence from the readings (using correct quotations). Tech Support Late assignments, Missed Exams Extra credit If you have technical problems, please do the following: 1. Contact the instructor immediately 2. Search the DMACC online website at 3. Contact the helpdesk or 4. Contact the distance learning office at , ext or I do not accept late work. Excused absences do not affect this policy. The usual deadlines for your weekly online submissions will be 11:30 p.m. Thursdays. Your Blackboard course is set up to not accept any weekly submissions (quiz, blog or discussion) after this time. All quizzes and tests must be taken within the time frames specified for each, and most are open for taking for a week. See the Bb Content Folders Assessments. No additional assignments for extra credit are available. Work of extraordinarily high quality may be granted additional credit. 2 Study expectations Weather policy Academic dishonesty Plan to devote as much time to an online course as you would to a classroom course, including (the online equivalent of) classroom time. For each weekly Content Folder (in Blackboard), you should expect to work on reading and writing for eight to twelve hours. This does not include time you may need to spend learning to navigate the Blackboard system, or learning any other technical aspects of online learning, such as accessing web links and using DMACC s online research databases. First, when accessing your Bb course, complete the Online Orientation. Online students should check Announcements within Bb for any changes to their class s schedule, as well as DMACC regarding campus closings. All writing submitted to this class s discussion topics or in essays must strictly conform to all MLA guidelines against plagiarism. Ignorance of the laws prohibiting plagiarism is no excuse for breaking them, and will not protect you from the penalties. 1) Know the rules: all college writing handbooks, print and online, contain instructions on how to avoid plagiarism. 2) Know the penalties: if you borrow anyone else s words or ideas, from any source, without correctly acknowledging this, you risk getting no credit for that assignment and you risk failing this course. Plagiarism can also be grounds for dismissal from the college. See DMACC Educational Services Procedures ES 262 VII. A and B.
