Reno Housing Authority A volunteer opportunity for community service and to help kids.


Grades Be sure to check often “GRADES” On the WebCT grade link. * The totals possible are meaningless – please refer to syllabus total points possible!


Please understand that there will be no exception to the "late" rule. To do so is a disservice to all who completed their work on time or, in many cases, ahead of time. It is not that I lack compassion, it is just that I feel compelled to be fair. Incomplete grades will not be issued.

Things to know: 

Things to know You can print out EDU 214 material for free in the lab I am very helpful – never spend more than 30 or so minutes on something I usually email back with 24 hours (usually) I USUALLY grade everything within 24 hours of the due date If I see a small error on your assignment I let you fix it before Tuesday sometimes – always check your assignments on Tuesday to see if you need to do something Drop box

Software issues: 

Software issues All programs are installed in the COE lab (no need to download) The library also has Office suite, Adobe Elements, and Movie Maker There are free downloads available from the company for almost all of the software HOWEVER – it doesn’t always work so don’t count on it at the last minute Failure to download does not give you an extension!!! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY ANY SOFTWARE


FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS Come in and sit by me during office hours and then you will probably get an A. I am very helpful!!!! You will never by stuck Read my emails and announcement Read the modules – they all work!
