This class is fully online, with online lectures, exercises, discussion board, and 4 exams. Work is done on your own schedule, but is due on a regular basis, with strict deadlines. We will be using pre-recorded voiceover presentations for lectures, with a few optional live sessions using blackboard collaborate. Exercises are assigned both on blackboard and using pearson's Mastering Geography. Exams are online at specified times: you can take the exam at either 10 am or 7 pm on the scheduled date. Instructor will email instructions and syllabus with exact dates and deadlines to enrolled students a few days before classes begin.
Classroom meetings will take place Mon and Wed, 12:00-12:50. Friday classes will be replaced by online assignments through blackboard. Assignments may consist of online lectures or readings, online exercises or quizzes, collaborative work, or other types of assignments as specified in class. You may work on the assignments anytime, but they must be completed weekly, by the posted due date. Further instructions will be provided at the first class meeting.
