I am so pleased to be your professor this Fall. We will have our first session on Blackboard Collaborate on Thursday, August 26th at 10 am.
Please start by reviewing the Course Information and Course Calendar. We will go through this information together during our first class meeting so be ready with questions. Also, please fill out this Media Release form and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow me to record our lectures so that your class can have access to the recordings.
During this semester you will be expected to review the online lessons posted under Class Agendas before class and be prepared to work during our Blackboard session together on the Excel or Word lesson posted for that day. Your participation in OpenLab assignments will be incorporated as part of your grade.
This semester you will also be using WeBWorK for your online homework. I’ll be sending you an email to your City Tech email address with your login information so be on the lookout for that.
You will have a chance to ask questions about your homework as well during class and office hours.
Before our first class, please go through Lesson 1 and be ready to work together on the Excel file posted there.
