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.

Welcome To Your E-Learning Course Math 102 Instructor: Donna Acquavella E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Office: Founders 123.

Accessing Your Course
MyLab / Mastering
Your course is using MyLab / Mastering by Pearson, 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 MyLab / Mastering website if it is not included with your book.
Information about MyLab / Mastering can be found at
Please check the Systems Requirements 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

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
This course is set up a little differently than other E-Learning courses you may have taken. We will be using MyLabs as the main point of entrance into our course. There is a required access code that must be purchased for this web site. The code is included with the purchase of a new text book. Text books can be purchased at the Bucks County Community College bookstore. There is an e-book available in MyLabs so a paper textbook is optional. All homework and quizzes will be completed using MyLabs. In order to register with MyLabs you must have this access code. All assignments will have a due date. If you fall more than two weeks behind in your assignments, I reserve the right to withdrawal you from the course. The Orientation will help clarify the many questions you may have. It will also be a good opportunity to learn how to navigate the MyLabs site. Please, if you have any questions prior to receiving your e-mail about orientation, feel free to contact me at email@example.com . (E-mail is the best way to contact me) If you have trouble with the MyLabs program, you can call their support line…1-800-677-6337. I look forward to working with each of you.
