I am usually available throughout the day. I check my email and classroom frequently and will respond to you within 24 hours once I receive your message, but typically much sooner.
I am available from 8 a.m.-11 a.m. MST during most weekdays and on Saturday. Fridays and Sundays are typically reserved for personal time, although I do check in for questions. If I do not answer the phone, please leave a voicemail, and I will get back to you.
If you wish to schedule a time to talk with me outside of these hours, you are welcome to post a note in your Individual Forum. You may call or email as well. If these times are not convenient for you, please let me know. I will be happy to accommodate your schedule, when possible. I am providing you with these times to make it easier to communicate with me not to limit our contact. I want you to know that should you need to contact me outside these time frames, you should not hesitate to do so. I am available to schedule appointments via phone, if necessary. Please note that I am in the Mountain Time Zone. I am here to help you succeed in any way I can.
For emergencies, when you are not able to gain access to your class, please send a message to both of my email addresses. In the event a third party needs to contact me, please direct them to my contact information listed under "facilitator information." No third party should use your login credentials to gain access to the classroom. Words of Welcome

Individual Forum: You will see one forum with your name on it. This is a private forum, shared only by you and me, the facilitator. Your classmates will not have access to this forum. You can ask questions here. However, if you have general questions about instructions...
