Where to Go to Class: Your Course Forums
Main: This is the main forum for the class and is where discussion is conducted. It has read-and-write access for everyone. Assignments-write-only: This is where you will submit some of your assignments. You will only be able to see your own posts. Chat-Room: This is a read-and-write access forum. It is designed as a place to discuss issues not related to the course content. This is the forum to which we will send our bios. Course-Materials: This is a read-only forum, which means you can read messages here but cannot send any. This is where I will post the course syllabus and materials. Learning-Team-A: These five Learning Team forums will be used as workrooms for the learning teams. You will be assigned to one of these learning teams. Learning-Team-B

Please see the attendance policies included in the first message posted in the Main forum. Participation
Participation is very important online. You will be expected to participate 4 days a week in several different discussions and to contribute at least two substantive discussion messages on each of those 4 days. This is a required part of your grade. Participation consists of notes you send above and beyond graded assignments. This generally means the messages you send as replies to messages from your classmates and me. Please note that both quantity and quality are important considerations when it comes to participation. For example, a message which says simply, "I agree," does not constitute participation, because it does not add anything of substance to the discussion. In order to earn full participation points, you must add something of substance to the discussion 4 out of 7 days per week—this would consist of new ideas, your perspectives, pointed follow-up questions, etc. You will find it is much easier to keep up with an Online class when you are logging in and participating regularly. Only posts in the Main classroom forum will count towards your class participation score. Participation and Discussion Question Grading
