1. Class will meet via Internet at the times above along with office hours on Heritage University Virtual Campus (AKA MyHeritage) using Elluminate (Blackboard Collaborate).

2. During those sessions, Prof. Gutzwiler will cover the reading materials, go over exercises and homework, and answer questions. Dr. Schmidt will answer questions during office hours. ATTENDANCE IS NOT REQUIRED. MOST SESSIONS WILL BE RECORDED FOR LATER PLAYBACK, BUT NOT ALL PARTS OF EVERY SESSION ARE RECORDED. However, there are additional video lectures and previously-recorded sessions available. Students with other obligations on Thursdays evenings who need additional assistance should contact the instructor to arrange an online conference.

3. Online students who want to speak rather than type MUST use a headset when attending Elluminate sessions. Open microphones create feedback. Cheap headsets and typed questions both work just fine; webcam not required.

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