Procedures and Information for adding students for Dr. Moore’s Online Psychology Classes

 (This applies to all online classes that I teach). Read the entire document if you want to add my classes.

 

  1. I will add students who (smoore@valleycollege.edu) between midnight and 9am on the first day of classes. Your ability to add the class will depend on how many people drop or do not email me by the 9am deadline on the first day of classes. Your email must include your name, the class name, and section number you want to add in the email. If you do not give me your name, the class name, and section number you want to add in the email, I will not contact you and you will have no chance of being added to the class.  I will email authorization codes to students selected to add the class by the second day of classes. If you do not receive an email from me, it means you have not been selected to add the class.
  2. If you receive an authorization code from me, you need to register and pay for the class as soon as possible. Contact Admissions and Records for information about paying for classes. You will not be added to Blackboard for 24-48 hours after you register and pay for the class, so the sooner you pay for the class, the sooner you can access the online class website on Blackboard. I will not change due dates for any graded work because you added the class late.
  3. I will not send any authorization codes after Friday, Jan. 16. Do not email me after Jan. 15, 2015 regarding adding the class. I will not respond to any such emails. I will only respond to emails when I add a student.
  4. I will not change any deadlines because you added the class late. If you cannot purchase your textbook by the end of the first week of class, you should enroll in a different class.
  5. Textbook information is available when looking at the classes in Web Advisor or by going to the Bookstore link on the SBVC main web page. I will not email textbook information because it will be available in Web Advisor and the Bookstore link on the SBVC main page. You can also go to my website: www.sbvcpsychonline.org and read each page there to find the textbook information.
  6. Online classes are more difficult than regular classes. Students who do not have the computer equipment, basic word processing skills, reading skills, computer skills, and self-discipline will not do well in this class.
  7. I do not accept any late work and I will drop students who demonstrate a lack of participation in the class by not submitting critical analysis activities, discussion board posts, quizzes, exams, etc. This includes students who added late.
  8. If you have questions about my online classes, go to the Valley College website, look for the link to Online Classes, look for Online Courses Access (UAP), select Spring 2015 and select the class you want information on. Read the information posted there. You can also go to my website: www.sbvcpsychonline.org and read each page there to find information about my classes and the transfer degree in Psychology.
