Assignments

I take your paper and use the Reviewer Function in Word (or WordPerfect or Open Office). I also include a summary of comments and a grade at the bottom of the paper in Bold Italic Font. I then email back to you an record the grade in DNDLearn. I will not comment publicly in the Discussion Forum in DNDLearn as to the quality of your assignment.

Submitting Assignments

Submit your assignments to the appropriate Discussion Forum (ie Assignment 1.1) in DNDLearn. You do not need to email it to me. I will however, email my comments back to you.

When submitting assignments, please do not wait until the assignment due date to ask for an extension unless an operational, family, or medical emergency has happened. Please try to plan ahead. When submitting an assignment, please us this file name format: Lastname_Firstname_POE2906Fall2008_Asgt_1-1.doc

Note that DNDLearn has a 2 MB maximum file size. You may need to save your paper as a PDF. Most DWAN computers can do this by selecting File > Print> Adobe PDF. If you are using your own computer at home, you can download PDFCreator free to generate PDFs. PDFCreator is like a printer so all you have to do is Print > PDF creator instead of selecting your local printer name.

Late Assignments

Assignments for which an extension has not been granted are subject to a late penalty of 2% off per day. If you require an extension for professional reasons, please discuss this with the instructor.
The assignments will be based roughly on each module. Due dates are indicated in the outline below. Submission instructions are indicated for each assignment/activity.

My Feedback

I endeavor to read discussion posts within 24 hours (except weekends) and grade all other assignments within 48 hours. Note that RMC actually gives me 2 weeks from the date of your submission. I tend to be speedier than that :-)

Discussion Forum/Class Participation

I will respond to many, but not all discussion posts. I will particularity point out missing info, incorrect info, or missing alternate points of view. I will log your grades in DNDLearn as I mark each assignment. I do not send out notification emails unless there is an assingment to return.
