Instructor notes:

This class meets entirely online in Canvas and will not require on-site attendance or exams. Large paper assignments will be completed over the course of several weeks; however, there will be weekly due dates for reading+ responses and discussion board activities, 3 mandatory webinar meetings*, and weekly office hours (held online and on-site) that will require you to accommodate a preset schedule.

Due to the nature of online instruction and classroom activities (like discussion boards), an Online ENGL 100 class demands far more reading and writing than a traditional, on-site ENGL 100 class. Please appreciate this reality before committing to this class.

+The assigned book for this course is Steven Johnson's Where Good Ideas Come From. Any edition is fine.

*Mandatory meetings will be synchronous, occurring usually on Monday or Tuesday evenings between 7:00 and 8:30 pm. Missed meetings can be made up with an alternate assignment.
