Students use the college LMS (Desire2Learn) for materials access and a software package for content delivery. Students will NOT purchase a textbook - rather they will purchase software from the JCCC software desk. Students may also be required to access a separate website for online homework submission.


Grades are determined by a weighted average as follows: Class assignments submitted on-line: 10%; section quizzes: 10%; written and/or on-line homework: 10%; mid-term exam (taken at JCCC or proctored environment): 30%; final exam (taken at JCCC or proctored environment): 40%.

Homework Policy

All work must be submitted according to the schedule. Section quizzes are accepted late at half credit - no other work is accepted late. Students are required to stay on schedule. Most assignments are submitted online, although each course has 5-6 written assignments that are submitted directly to the instructor through fax, email, or dropping off at JCCC.

Attendance Policy

Student who do not comply with the following specific requirement during the first two weeks of the course will be dropped for non-attendance:

  • A phone conference with the instructor. Students will not have access to course materials until they meet this requirement.
  • Completion of all Getting Started assignments. These are due at the end of the first week of class and will not be accepted late.
  • Completion of one assignment from the software package(s). These are scheduled for completion before the end of the two week period.


The weekly office hours schedule is posted on the announcements board for each course.

  • On Campus Office Hours: 3-5 office hours are scheduled on campus per week. Students may also meet with the instructor by making an appointment.
  • Online Office Hours: Instructor is available on-line at posted times six days per week.
  • Voice Mail/Email Response: Instructor will respond to email or voice mail as soon as possible but always within 24 hours unless students are notified through the announcements that the instructor is not available for an extended period of time.

Additional Information

This is NOT a self-paced course! Students should commit to a minimum of 12 hours per week to work on their course work. Students are expected to contact the instructor for questions regarding the course and for help on the material.
