Important Semester Dates for Summer 2020 Class:
To achieve this goal, you are expected to achieve competency in the following course-level Student Learning Outcomes:
To create a better learning experience, you will actively use the material we are covering in class. You will do some research on how other businesses are currently using their websites and write analyzing what you have found. This is a great way to see what is working, or not working and learn to create websites and use design more effectively yourself. This will expand your viewpoint of the content covered in class.
The assignments are here to point you in the right direction, your level of participation and engagement will directly affect the depth of your learning experience.
Late homework will be marked down as specified per weekly exercise rubric. I encourage you to continue and complete the entirety of your work.
Dropping Class: It is your responsibility to drop or withdraw from the class, although after three consecutive weeks of no homework being turned in and no visible course activity, I may be drop you from this course.
Incomplete Grade: Students seeking a grade of Incomplete must consult with me no later than the week prior to finals (you may wish to specify a date within this week). A grade of Incomplete will only be considered for unforeseeable, emergency and justifiable reasons at the end of the term, and only upon agreement of conditions for completing coursework.
Specific Course Pace
Students should plan on spending at least 5-8 hours per week reading and applying what they learn. It is important to keep up with the class pace, so as not to fall behind. Materials covered will build as steps to the next concept, and should not be skipped over. Although I will guide you in the process of using each tool we cover, you must be able to work independently on your own to apply each new concept. Let me know ahead of time if you are missing class.
Plagiarism: The work you do in class should be original. Look, learn, and then develop your own style and content. Do not copy someone else and use it as your own work.
Copyright issues: Material [images or text] that exists on the web is not necessarily public domain. Ask for permission before copying someone elseâ€™s work.
Penalty for Cheating and Plagiarism will initially result in a written reprimand and a 0 on the work involved for a first offense. A second offense will include referral to the Vice President of Student Services with a notation on the permanent academic record.
Students with disabilities, whether physical, learning, or psychological, who believe that they may need accommodations in this class, are encouraged to contact Disabled Students Programs & Services as soon as possible to ensure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely manner. Their phone number is 795-6658 and they are located in Building 3000-Student Services, Room 3009, adjacent to Parking Lot 3C.

Student Orientation to Online Learning Workshops
The school is offering over two dozen Student Orientation to Online Learning workshops this fall â€“ see all dates and times on the TASC site (Links to an external site.) and in Canvas announcements. These workshops help to familiarize students with the resources MiraCosta provides online to support them, as well as to adopt habits and attitudes of successful online students.
Two MiraCosta CARE Resources
The Reshaping Your School Schedule During Remote Instruction document (Links to an external site.) has great info for students on good habits for online student success, self-care and mental health tips, online learning netiquette, Zoom tech tips, and more. Linking to it from your syllabus and course home page could easily provide students with a wealth of great tips tailored for this unique time. Check out the CARE form (Links to an external site.) - students who are need of technology resources or have other major life concerns making it difficult to maintain their studies can seek help via this form.
If you decided to stop attending/participating, you must DROP the class yourself. Do not expect me to drop you automatically. If you do miss a series of classes without informing me of a good reason, I may drop you from class.
