STATEMENT OF WORKLOARD EXPECTATIONS:

The Arizona Board of Regents, the governing board for ASU, NAU, and the U of A, has a policy

for how much time students should invest in their courses: “A minimum of 45 hours of work by

each student is required for each unit of credit.”

Therefore, in a 3-credit course, students should expect to invest 45 hours in class meetings (or

the online equivalent), as well as 90 hours doing homework and assignments—a total of 135 hours

in any given session (A, B, or C).

This translates to 18 hours per week engaging with the learning assignments (i.e.,

readings, online lectures and activities, assignments and assessments, and studying) for an

online classes that meet over a 7.5 week-semester or the shortened condensed summer

schedule. As you register for courses, keep this 135-hour standard in mind because during some

semesters your work and/or family commitments may prevent you from taking a full load of

classes.

response posts must be submitted by midnight Saturday of the week assigned.

Late submissions to the discussion boards (after the week has concluded) will not be accepted.

Netiquette – Discussion Board Posting Rules and Guidelines

Everyone participates. This is one of the distinct advantages of Discussion Boards. Those who think

fast are at no greater advantage than those who prefer to process a while or those who tend to

keep quiet and not participate during physical classroom discussions. This is your chance to openly

 

 

CRJ 412 International Terrorism Summer II 2017

and freely discuss issues raised in this class. The Discussion Board is the most important tool for

online learning and your participation will be a significant part of your course grade!
