Facilitator Availability
I am generally available, during the week, between 7 – 10 pm EST (4 - 7 pm MST, Arizona Time) to participate and answer questions. For the most part, I will be offline on Fridays and Saturdays. My availability at these times is to make it easier to communicate with me, not to limit our contact. I encourage you to post any questions or issues you may have to your Individual Forum, I will respond to you the next time I check into class, with a goal of responding within 24 hours!

If you would like to speak by phone, you may certainly call me. However, in order to ensure availability, I request that you post a request for phone communication, an appointment time and any questions or issues that you have with in your Individual Forum to set up a time for you to call me in order to focus on responding to any issues you may have. Remember, I am here to help you succeed in this course.
For emergencies, when you are not able to gain access to messages on the Online Learning System (OLS), send a message to both of my email addresses.
Where to Go to Class
Main Forum: This is the Main Forum for the class and is where discussion is conducted. It has read-and-write access for everyone. The Main Forum is only used for Discussion Question posting/submissions and weekly participation. I will prepare a weekly “Questions Thread” for any questions that may be asked of that week’s course that are general in nature. As a reminder, do not post your checkpoint or assignment work in this forum and do not start any new threads for discussion.

Chat-Room Forum: This is a read-and-write access forum. The Chat-Room Forum is designed as a place to discuss issues not related to the course content. This is the forum to which we will send our bios.

Course-Materials Forum: This is a read-only forum, which means you can read messages here but cannot send any. This is where I will post the course syllabus and materials.

Individual Forum: You will see one forum with your name on it. This is a private forum, shared only by you and me, the facilitator. This is where you will post your individual checkpoints, exercises and assignments and where I will post your feedback. This forum is also, where you can ask questions here. However, if you have general questions about instructions of assignments, please post those in the Main Forum, since other students may benefit by that exchange as well.
Policies
For class policies, please see the Policies link on the left side of the Materials page for the course on eCampus. Faculty and students/learners will be held responsible for understanding and adhering to all policies contained within that link. University policies are subject to change so please be sure to read them at the beginning of each class as it may have changed since your last class. Policies may be slightly different depending on the modality in which you attend class. If you have recently changed modalities it is important you read the policies governing your current class modality.

Discussion Questions and Participation Guidelines
To get full credit for participation, there must be four (4) different days where you had at least two (2) substantive posts each. If I post a question or request for more information to your response, it usually means that it was not a thorough response and I am trying to provide you an opportunity to add to your response.

Your substantive participation posts must be made in the current discussion week in order to earn points. While it is fine to keep discussing a DQ beyond the week in which it was posted, points are earned only during the original Discussion Week for that DQ.

There are two factors that are considered when awarding points for participation:

1. Number and Timing of Posts: Specifically, you must make two posts on each of four separate days. So four posts on one day and two posts on another will not meet the requirement, nor will one post per day.

2. Posts Must be Substantive: What is a substantive post? It is a post that relates theory or methods to personal experience, and adds to the question under discussion. In other words, a substantive post consists of a well thought-out, correctly spelled and grammatically correct paragraph or two that:

a. Build on an earlier post, agreeing and elaborating or respectfully disagreeing
and explaining the source of the opinion
b. Describe how you relate or apply course readings to personal experience
c. Consider an idea being discussed and offer a different perspective
d. Explain insights you gained from course readings
e. Share another resource you have used related to the course readings

Remember that your initial response to each DQ does not count as participation, but it does count toward your DQ points. Asking questions to me in your INF and posting in the Chat room do not count as participation.
Technical Support
Technical Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Call 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX, or use the e-mail support form.
Answers to the most common issues are found in the Knowledge Base by clicking Help, found at the top of every student Web site.
Feedback
Each week, I will provide feedback comments and grades on your week’s assignments. I post this feedback and points earned in your Individual forum.
All Work Postings/Submissions
Finally, grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure are graded and count in all your posts (Checkpoints, Assignments, Exercises, DQs and participation). .
