The ability to utilize the online Blackboard/WebCT Vista software is extremely important. Imagine if a student does not know the directions to his/her classroom or does not know how to speak to participate in class discussions. I cannot teach you how to utilize the online software, trouble-shoot your computer problems, or teach you how to participate in on-line class discussions. If you are unable to navigate the tutorials successfully, please consider taking an on-campus course. Please print up this syllabus for your records.
