Facilitator Availability
Although I will be online off and on throughout the day during the week, I generally set aside time
specifically for this course each evening between 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. On Saturdays, I
tend to be online during the morning hours of 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., although I sometimes will check in once or
twice late that evening. If these times are not convenient for you, please let me know. I will be happy to
accommodate your schedule, if possible.
I provide you with these times to make it easier to communicate with me, and not to limit our contact. I
want you to know that, should you need to contact me outside these time frames, you should not hesitate
to do so. I am best reached via e-mail. If you do need to call me, please leave a message.
For emergencies, when you are not able to gain access to messages on the Online Learning System
(OLS), please send a message to my personal email address. In the event a third party needs to contact
me, please direct them to my contact information listed under "facilitator information." No third party
should use your login credentials to gain access to the classroom.
Where to Go to Class
Main: This is the main forum for the class and is where discussion is conducted. It has read-and-write
access for everyone.
Chat-Room: This is a read-and-write access forum. It is designed as a place to discuss issues not related
to the course content. This is the forum to which we will send our bios.
Course-Materials: This is a read-only forum, which means you can read messages here but cannot send
any. This is where I will post the course syllabus and materials.
Learning-Team-A, B, C, D, E and F: These six Learning Team forums will be used as workrooms for the
learning teams. You will be assigned to one of these learning teams.
Individual Forum: You will see one forum with your name on it. This is a private forum, shared only by
you and me, the facilitator. Your classmates will not have access to this forum. You can ask questions
here. However, if you have general questions about instructions of assignments, please post those in the
Main forum, since other students may benefit by that exchange as well.
Where to Submit Your Assignments
Assignment Section: This is where you will submit all formal assignments. Navigate to the
Assignments link on eCampus. Locate the link to submit your assignment as an attachment.
Policies
For class policies, please see the "Policies" link on the left side of the Materials page for the course on
eCampus. Faculty and students/learners will be held responsible for understanding and adhering to all
policies contained within that link. University policies are subject to change so please be sure to read
them at the beginning of each class as it may have changed since your last class. Policies may be slightly

different depending on the modality in which you attend class. If you have recently changed modalities it
is important you read the policies governing your current class modality.
Late Assignments
Late assignments receive a 10% deduction for each day they are late if assignments are not posted by
11:59 p.m. M.S.T. on the day they are due. Assignments more than 4 days late will not be accepted.
Technological issues are not considered valid grounds for late assignment submission. In the event of a
University of Phoenix server outage, students should submit assignments to the instructor and when
systems are restored, submit those assignments according to syllabus instructions. Unless an Incomplete
grade has been granted, learner assignments submitted after the last day of class will not be accepted.
Learning Teams
University of Phoenix students are expected to work effectively in diverse groups and teams to achieve
tasks. They must collaborate and function well in team settings as both leaders and followers. They
should respect human diversity and behave in a tolerant manner toward colleagues and peers. If you
experience difficulties working with your team, you are expected to resolve them within the team if
possible. However, please feel free to contact me for guidance if you have concerns in this area. Because
Learning Team projects are outcome-based, all members of your Learning Team will generally earn the
same grade for Learning Team projects. However, I reserve the right to report different grades for different
Learning Team members if I see a substantial imbalance in individual contribution. Learning Teams
should provide a brief summary of any communication held outside the forum. Therefore, if you hold
conference calls, work in a real-time chat room, or get together outside the OLS (Online Learning System)
environment in another way, please post a log, transcript, or summary in the Learning Team forum.
Further, do not use any of these supplementary communication tools unless everyone on your Learning
Team agrees to the method and to the schedule. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Several of the assignments in this class will be completed in Learning Teams of three to five students. I
will set up these teams by the end of Week 1. If you have any requests for teammates, please let me
know by Thursday of the first week via your Individual Forum. Learning Team Charters and Peer
Evaluation forms are required. Please see the instructions in the weekly sections for more information. All
Learning Team assignments must be submitted to the Learning Team forum.
It is expected that you will actively participate with your learning team and contribute to the team
discussions by a) contributing original work that is accepted and used by the team with proof of originality
b) participating in the project from assignment organizing through meaningful final review of the team
project for submission, and c) ensuring to your team that your contributions are your original work and
properly quoted, cited, and referenced.
Technical Support
Technical Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Call 1-877-832-4867, or use the e-mail
support form. Answers to the most common issues are found in the Knowledge Base by clicking Help,
found at the top of every student Web site.
Feedback
Each week, I will provide grades or scores and comments on assignments within 6 days of when they
were submitted. After I send feedback each week, I will post a notification in the Main forum.
