IMPORTANT!!! A solid internet connection, a web cam and microphone are required for this class. Although this is in a virtual environment, you must attend the entire class, just like you would in an in-person course setting. It would be best if you always were seen on your webcam while class is in session. **Running errands such as appointments, trips, meetings, etc., are not permitted while the course is in session. It is a requirement to be stationary in front of a computer or tablet, not traveling, during the course. If you need to leave for any reason, you must log off, and the missed time will be deducted from your contact hours. Additionally, the instructor reserves the right to remove you from the class if needed. Missed time is considered missed contact hours and would need to be made up in a future class to receive credit for the course.**
