Technical Requirements and Skills
One of the greatest barriers to taking an online course is a lack of basic computer literacy. By computer literacy, we mean being able to manage and organize computer files efficiently and learning to use your computer's operating system and software quickly and easily. Keep in mind that this is not a computer literacy course, but students enrolled in online courses are expected to have moderate proficiency using a computer. Please go to the What's Required webpage to find out more information on this subject.
Please visit our Technical Requirements webpage for additional information.

It is assumed that students have attained a level of maturity that motivates them to take responsibility for achieving the learning objectives of this course by using the learning tools provided. This course is designed to be completed successfully through the use of three learning assignments:
A. If, after doing the reading and homework assignments, a student does not understand a topic that has been explained in class, it is the student's responsibility to visit the instructor during office hours, or contact via e-mail to seek additional instructional assistance, or to seek such assistance from classmates, or from any other source that is available.
B. It is impossible to cover all assigned reading materials in class. Therefore it is of particular importance that a student request further explanation of any assigned material that the student does not understand, and that is not covered in class. Students are responsible, in the relevant classes, and on the relevant examinations, for the corresponding material in the reading and homework assignments regardless of whether it is, or is not, covered in class.
C. In the unfortunate event that a student is obliged to miss a class lab/lecture for circumstances beyond his/her control, the student is responsible for taking any exceptional steps necessary to learn the material discussed in that class. Such steps may include obtaining assistance from classmates and/or requesting assistance from the instructor during office hours, going to tutoring sessions, or from any other available source.
