Course Orientation

HYBRID description: A course with an “H” in the section.
Hybrid courses are a combination of face-to-face and online work. Hybrid students meet at least one day
a week for 50-75minutes. In the classes, I will answer any questions that you may have about the
material and I will discuss any difficult topics that you may not understand.

You must have access to a computer with internet to participate in the course.

You will need to purchase iclicker2 from the bookstore. We will use this for in class quizzes.

You will need to log on to Blackboard and DCC email account regularly to retrieve
important announcements, updates, your notes, powerpoints, quizzes, and activities.

If you experience computer problems during the semester, Computer Lab and Library
Locations and Hours can be found at the following link:

For the semester, you will need to purchase five 882-e scantrons – 4 for chapter exams and 1
for the final. All may be purchased at the bookstore or at chimes.
I do not provide scantrons for the tests and you may not take a test without one so please
come prepared.

All grades will be posted on Blackboard. The grades will not be averaged. JUST POSTED.
Do not be concerned with total points.
 I am unable to discuss grades over emails or the phone. ONLY IN
PERSON.

All tests must be taken in person on City Park campus in our classroom. Test dates are
posted in your schedule.

You will be able to contact me during office hours or by appointment. Hours are posted on
Blackboard under the tab “Staff Information”. When you do contact me, it is very
important that the subject line state the class and section you are in. I do not respond to
empty subject lines.
