Orientation for this course is REQUIRED.
Failure to participate in a REQUIRED orientation, as specified below, may jeopardize your grade.
Your instructor will hold the orientation online using self-paced tools, email and/or discussions. (A self-paced orientation does NOT mean the entire course is self-paced.) You should plan to access your online course no later than the first day of the session. Failure to do so may jeopardize your grade.
Other Orientation Information
Welcome To Your E-Learning Course
Instructor: Janine Termine
Office: Founders 127
Orientation for this course will be delivered via PowerPoint presentation. Please check your Bucks e-mail account a few days before classes start with directions for your Orientation. Once you are familiar with your responsabilities of the course, you will be asked to register in MyLab. MyLab is the platform that we will be using for this course, NOT Canvas.
Once you are registered and logged into MyLab, there will be an Orientation Quiz that you must take in order to proceed with any of your homeworks. How to find the quiz will be included in the Orientation information and syllabus.
Please do not purchase any books or codes until you receive the Orientation information in your Bucks e-mail. Do not purchase a "used textbook" from any website. You will need the MyLab code that comes with the purchase of a "new" textbook. This code has a seperate value of over $85. I believe a new text and code will cost you about $130.
Instructor's Welcome Page
Your instructor's detailed information page (referred to as
a "welcome page") is:
Accessing Your Course
Your course is using MyMathLab, which requires the purchase of an
access code. This code is usually packaged with a new textbook, but may also be purchased
separately from the MyMathLab website if it is not included with your book.
Information about MyMathLab can be found at http://www.mymathlab.com. Please check the systems Requirement page to verify your computer compatibility.
Your instructor will provide an additional course code you will need to
access your specific course.
Purchasing Your Books and Other Course Materials
While you may purchase your books and other course materials from the provider of your choice (using the
ISBN number available through the course's academic department
where applicable to ensure the correct version), both the campus bookstore
and our online bookstore,
guarantee that they stock the correct version for your course.
Approximately 3 weeks prior to the start of the session you can use the link
below to see the list of books that have been selected by your instructor. If you have
any questions about the course materials listed, please contact your instructor or the academic
this link to see the book list for your course.
Other Information about the Course
Dear E-Learning Student,
This course is set up a little different than other E-Learning courses you may have taken here at Bucks. We will be using www.pearsonmylab.com as the main point of entrance into our course.
There is a required code that must be purchased for this website. The code comes free with the purchase of a new text book, which can be purchased at the bookstore. Please do not purchase any books or codes until you receive the Orientation information via your Bucks e-mail. All homework will be completed in MyLab using a program called MyMath.
In order to register, all directions on "how" to register will be sent to you a couple of days before the start of class.
All homework will be completed on line in MyLab/MyMathLab. If you fall further than two weeks behind in your assignments, I reserve the right to withdrawal you from the course.
All tests must be taken at one of Bucks's Testing Centers. If this is not possible, proper arrangements for proctoring must be completed before the first day of classes. There are no exceptions.
The Orientation will help clarify the many questions you may have. It will also be a good opportunity to learn how to navigate the site MyLab.
Please, if you have any questions prior to receiving your e-mail about orientation, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . (E-mail is the best way to contact me.)
I look forward to working with each and every one of you.
Mrs. Janine Termine
