This course is a hybrid course. All hybrid courses have both online and in-person components. In order to be successful in the course, you must complete componentsin both areas.Although technology seems magical, our technology is mechanical. We understand thatmachines break. We know that not every machine runs smoothly all the time. Because we allknow this fact, it is logical to start assignments early, ask for help early, and arrange regularaccess to the necessary technology. NAU-Yavapai has enough technology to support all the
assignments required by this class. Since we provide the necessary technology, we don’t
support all off-campus technology. Technological hiccups and issues are not an excuse for notcompleting work.
Because we only meet for ten in-class sessions, attendance is mandatory for allsessions. If you are unable to attend class, you may lose participation points. Missing morethan three sessions will result in your being dropped and/or failing the course. Due dates arenot changed by your absence. You should contact other students for assignments and classinformation.
All assignments must be turned in on the date/time stated on the schedule andin the format requested. The end of this syllabus has a complete calendar. Read thiscarefully because late work is not accepted.
