Toppenish classroom students may drop into Dr. Schmidt's online sessions anytime they wish and vice-versa.
Asynchronous Online Students
1. The class will be available synchronously via the Internet using Elluminate (Blackboard Collaborate) at the same times listed above.
2. During those sessions, Dr. Schmidt will cover the reading materials, conduct exercises, help with homework, and answer questions. 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 those weekend days and evenings who need additional assistance should contact the instructor to arrange an online conference.
3. Online students who want to speak rather than type should use a headset when attending Elluminate sessions. Open microphones create feedback. Cheap headsets and typed questions both work just fine; webcam not required.
4. Additional office hours will be announced after students check in. These are not mandatory and are generally not recorded. All students welcome to drop in.
