Course Policies & Requirements

  1. Frequent, productive and professional communication is required of students in this course. Students should post a total of 5 to 7 postings over a minimum of three days per week.
  2. Students must follow correct standards for all written communication via the discussion board, email, and virtual classroom chats with supervisors, etc.
  3. Cheating and plagiarism are not tolerated.
  4. It is recommended that students submit all written portions of graded assignments to Tutor.com. Post tutor’s feedback with your submission of assignments.
  5. Missed deadlines in business hurt productivity and second chances are seldom available; thus, your instructor/course supervisor does not accept late assignments without arrangements prior to deadlines. Late or missing assignments earn a grade of zero.
  6. Students not posting in the discussion board during three or more weeks of the term will not pass the course. Full participation is required each week and during group presentations.
  7. If you are having personal or academic difficulties in completing an assignment, communicate with your instructor before an absence or due date. I do not offer “make up” assignments or extra credit, but I will offer guidance before the assignment is due.
  8. Students are responsible for reading text assignments and following all information/course schedules posted in the COM 1010 site or discussion board.
  9. In order to complete assignments for this course, students must have a DSL or high-speed Internet connection, smartphone, web cam, microphone, and/or the ability to create, save, and upload videos to Internet sites.
  10. This course requires a willingness to learn various communication technologies and reliably participate in teams and partnerships with classmates. It also requires oral presentations submitted through video to YouTube and linked in the course discussion forums.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
