    Course Description:

    This course serves as an introduction to distance education, as both a delivery mechanism and as an academic field. It is intended to provide students with the opportunity to become familiar with the philosophies, strategies, and techniques involved in teaching outside of a face-to-face environment. The historical, present, and future practices of communication in distance teaching, including the application of available technologies. Students will have the opportunity to adapt and/or develop content for courses online. Ultimately, students will be responsible for using the teacher website, google classroom, email, and other various sites. Students will focus on distance education for the remainder of the time mandated by CVUSD.

    Course Structure and Policies:

    Work load: The assignments will be posted online along with the due dates in Google Classroom, please see the links on my class page. All of my classes are familiar with how to use Google Classroom, since we have been using it all year long. Students will check for assignments and due dates for those assignments on their respective class page in Google. Because the course meets online, it is important that students budget their time and are aware of participation and assignment due dates. Students in online courses must take a greater responsibility for the progress of their learning.

    Participation Policy: The success of an online course depends a great deal on the participation and contributions of the students. Your success in completing projects will depend upon your understanding of material presented in the course. Active participation is required. Please explain any lapse in participation via private email. Your final grade will reflect the level of participation you give to the course.

    Response time: I will do my best to answer student emails within 24 hours and to evaluate activities and assignments within 7-10 days.

    Grading: Assignment feedback and grades will be kept in Google Classroom and Aries. Assignments will be turned in through the uploading of files to Google Classroom.
