Law Enforcement and the Community and Criminal Investigations
Because you must teach yourself with the help of the community, it is very important that you connect with your classmates and interact with them often and in meaningful ways. This interaction will happen via e-mail, phone and if you set up your own personal instant messaging in yahoo!
Your success in this course is directly related to how much time you are willing to invest in doing the course work and establishing relationships within our learning community. You will find your classmates to be important resources from whom you can learn and who, in turn, will rely on you to help them learn. During the first week of class, we will be doing exercises especially designed to help you establish a network of people with whom you can interact throughout the semester.
And certainly, I expect to be a primary resource. I am here to help you, encourage you, throw you a lifeline and get you back on track when needed. I will not leave you stranded and floating in the outer reaches of space. I check e-mail and logon to the system daily.
There are some helpful preparations you can do immediately to ensure that your learning atmosphere is comfortable.
1. Make sure you have a folder for the course and make hard copies of your weekly assignments, project(s) and exam.
2. Also, in that folder, make hard copies of all of the information in the "Course Information" section of the course.
3. ALWAYS read the "Announcements" section of the course BEFORE beginning the work week. I will post the due dates and times here, on a weekly basis.
4. All Homework assignments are turned in to the "Digital Drop Box" and all of the discussions are turned in to the "Discussion Board."
5. Your project(s) and exam will be turned into the "Digital Drop Box" OR posted in the "Exam" section of the course.
6. Please contact me, via email email@example.com or phone (301)322-0757, if you need any further assistance.
Good Luck! Have a
