Asynchronous Online Students from Eng 319.0, Eng 537.0, Eng 556.0

1. Class will meet via Internet on Heritage University Virtual Campus (AKA MyHeritage) and using Zoom.

2. During office hours, Dr. Schmidt will answer questions about the reading materials, go over exercises and homework, and answer questions for students who drop in. ATTENDANCE IS NOT REQUIRED. SOME SESSIONS WILL BE RECORDED FOR LATER PLAYBACK, BUT NOT ALL PARTS OF EVERY SESSION ARE RECORDED. However, there are additional lecture materials, video lectures, and previously-recorded sessions available on MyHeritage.

3. Online students who want to speak rather than type MAY need to use a headset when attending sessions. Zoom sessions have fewer issues with mics, but open microphones can still create feedback. Cheap headsets and typed questions both work just fine; webcam generally necessary for live Zoom sessions, but students working asychronously can function without either a mic or a webcam.

Virtual Campus: MyHeritage log-in codes are already AVAILABLE! Check registration letter from Heritage Registrar or contact instructor.
