Distance learning gives you an opportunity to take a college level class, without being on campus regularly. It requires a student that is motivated and self-disciplined. It is an interesting and fun way to take a class. There will not be an on-campus meeting for this class. The class will be taught using a web-based course management tool called Canvas, so you must have Internet access to participate in this course. If you do not have a computer at home, you may work at the college in the library. Personal computer problems are not an acceptable excuse for late work.
IMPORTANT- To find out your username, you will need to go to WebAdvisor . You will need either your student id or your social security number. To log in to your class, go to http://www.bucks.edu and click on E-Resources and then Canvas.. You will not have access to this course until 1:00 AM the first day of class. Please let me know ASAP, via email, if you are unable to log in.
You must complete the Start Here learning module within the course space to get full access to the course.
You will need to spend at least as much time on this class as you would if you were taking it in a classroom (if not more). That means for a traditional 15-week course, 6-12 hours a week should be devoted to reading and completing assignments. It is imperative that you keep on track with the posted schedule.
