Course Materials - Textbook & Training Software:

All materials for the course will be provided on Canvas. You can access canvas here.



You will need access to a computer to complete the work in this course.



You are about to embark on an exciting journey learning new computer skills and learning how to take classes online. By the end of the course, you will gain these skills:

  • Understand how online classes differ from face-to-face classes
  • You will know how to navigate and use the online learning platform Canvas.
  • You will know how to submit assignments.
  • You will know how to post to discussions
  • You will know how to communicate with email professionally
  • You will know how to send an attachment via email
  • You will know how to capture and process screenshots
  • You will know how to copy and paste information
  • You will gain a variety of other computer skills



  • Demonstrate an ability to complete basic tasks in an online course. 



You will need to complete assignments, discussions, and quizzes in this course. Each assignment, discussion, and quiz is worth 100 points.

The following grading scale will be used:

90 – 100            A
80 – 89.9           B
70 – 79.9           C
60 – 69.9           D



  • Add up the points you have earned
  • Divide the points you have earned by the total possible points 



  • There is one "official class discussion" every week.
  • Only postings in the "official class discussions" are graded.
  • Discussions are due at the end of the week though if I have yet to grade them, you can still post to that discussion and receive credit.
  • The discussions are designed to engender community and combat the feeling that you are alone in this class. Grading of the discussions focuses on participation.



  • The final will be available online in MyItLab during the last two weeks.
  • You are able to take the final as many times as you’d like.
  • The computer will keep your highest score.
  • The final will only test you on material from the textbook.



  • Official class discussions (which are only in the online class) are due at the end of every week, by Sunday midnight, or before I grade them. Everything else in the course is due before the last day of the course. You need to pace yourself through this course.



The ultimate deadline in the class for turning in all work: 03/18/2017 at 8:00 AM 



If you wish to receive credit for this class, it is your responsibility to verify that you are enrolled in the class. To verify that you are enrolled in the class, please look at WebAdvisor online or visit the registrar’s office in the student service’s building at FCC.



If you wish to drop this course, it is your responsibility to do so. The student has the ultimate responsibility for dropping the course.



Students may be dropped for not showing up to class. In the online class, “showing up to class” means that you are at least posting to the “official class discussion” every week. If you do not post to the “official class discussion” during the first week, you may be dropped as a “no show.” If you do not post to the “official class discussions” for two consecutive weeks, you may also be dropped.



Reinstatement must be made by formal petition and is the responsibility of the student.



If you have a verified need for an academic accommodation or materials in alternate media (for example: Braille, large print, electronic text, etc.) per the Americans with Disabilities Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, please contact your instructor as soon as possible.



  • You are not allowed to use your cellphone in class.
  • The instructor reserves the right to change the schedule, the number of assignments, the syllabus, and any other information related to the course or scheduling on this syllabus or otherwise. Changes will be announced via Canvas.
  • It is your responsibility to check your Fresno City College email address. If you do not check your FCC email, you may not receive emails from the instructor.
  • For efficiency, there may be times when your work and/or grades will be seen or checked by other persons.
  • You are expected to conduct yourself with the highest moral and ethical behavior. Any cheating, plagiarism or offensive behavior will be dealt with according to campus policy (see college catalog for details of campus policy). The college regards cheating as a serious offense. More than intelligence, more than beauty, more than money, more than a good grade, more than anything else in the world – honesty and integrity are the most valuable qualities any individual can have.
