Orientation for this course is recommended.
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
Students will be required to take an online orientation quiz within the course space on the first day of classes in order for the course to open to them in its entirety. Students will be required to review the course format, course schedule, and all assignments and are encouraged to contact the instructor within the Canvas course space with any questions. There will be no face-to-face orientation. Please contact the bookstore for information on the required text prior to the start of the semester.
Accessing Your Course
This course will use a website developed by a textbook publisher.
Specific details for accessing this website
will be provided by your instructor.
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

this link to see the book list for your course.
Other Information about the Course
This course will move very quickly and students should be prepared to review about 15 chapters over the Summer session I. Plan a minimum of 13-20 hours for this course per week. While eLearning courses provide flexibility in time, geography, and travel, the work required for successful completion is identical to that for the face-to-face course.
Students are expected to begin the requirements for the course (online orientation, readings, discussion groups) on the first day of classes.
