Guidelines for Online Discussions
First, read the directions for contributing to the class discussion using Canvas. They are posted on the professor’s web page. Her website address is: staffwww.fullcoll.edu/jtroop
You must prepare a comment for each module (chapter). The professor will provide the initial statement or question. She will provide a summary when the discussion is over.
Your comment must be 100-150 words. It must be thoughtful and well organized.
You may give your thoughts on the topic or comment on another student’s comment.
Students are to be respectful of one another. “Flaming” or other rudeness will earn no credit. Any criticism you offer must be positive.
Profanity will result in no credit. Remember, this is academic work, not Facebook.
Comments must be written in correct English. Proofread your work before submitting it.
Be sure to prepare and post your comments well before their respective deadlines.
Your comments must be more than a mere “I agree,” or “I do not agree.” No credit will be given for comments such as “My turtle wears pink tennis shoes.” Your remarks must be original, not just rephrasing what another student has written; and your turtle already knows that it is more fashionable than the rest of us.

Computer Lab Hours
If you do not have access to a computer, you may use the lab available to students in this class. Below is information concerning this lab. Computers are also available in the library.
Telephone number for 511 lab: 714-992-7000, extension 24297. The lab will be closed in observance of holidays when the school is closed.
511 Lab (Room 511)
Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
An instructional assistant is on duty in the lab Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. who can help you with your assignments. A lab aide is on duty after 6:30 Monday through Thursday, but that person is not allowed to help students with their assignments. The lab aide can help you with scanning, printing, and signing in.
Keeping Up with the Class It is to your advantage not to allow yourself to fall behind in the work. If you work during the week, you may spend some hours over the weekend doing class work. The reward is that, when you finish, you will have gained a wide background in Word. The work you put into learning this program pays dividends.
Using a Mac
Doing your assignments on a Mac is not recommended as students have reported that they have problems because the Apple software is not entirely compatible.
