This is a fully online course and therefore will not have scheduled face-to-face meetings. Your instructor, Mr. Kieft, will be available to meet with you virtually during predetermined times throughout the semester and will have on-campus office hours as indicated on his faculty website. This online course allows you the freedom to access the course at times convenient to you and your schedule. However, you are expected to do all your work based on the schedule in the class syllabus with specific due and testing dates. Successful MTB 1370 online students are self-motivated and possess the self-discipline needed to manage their time effectively. Due to the nature of this course, it is necessary that you be computer proficient and possess the following skills: competence in the use of email, familiarity with accessing and downloading content from web sources, and comfort with navigating possibly unfamiliar programs (such as Blackboard). The syllabus for the course will be available 30 days prior to the first day of class on Mr. Kieft’s website, http://www.lscc.edu/faculty/thomas_m_kieft/SitePages/Home.aspx.. Email communication is expected through Laker Mail, make sure you activate your account prior to the beginning of the semester.
You will have to take three proctored paper and pencil tests in a Lake-Sumter State College Learning Center. These tests will need to be taken during special testing times from Monday through Thursday.
