Computer classes also require that the students complete weekly homework and unit exams during the semester/summer term. Plan you time wisely to be able to show your work within the guidelines given by the instructor. The only way to know that learning has happened is by showing that you can perform the tasks required in the homework and hands-on activities. This 5-unit course requires 5 hrs weekly of lecture, 1 hour weekly of lab, and 10 hours weekly for homework and study time. The expected total is 16 hours weekly during a regular semester. During the summer session, this time is doubled to 32 hrs weekly! Please plan your schedule accordingly.
Online Activity is part of your class grade. If you are considering an online SPAN 101, keep in mind that your grade will also include online activity on Blackboard. This activity is based on the assumption that students will be spending time on a weekly basis doing their online work and assigned tasks.
SPAN 101 has a one-hour lab component on top of the 5 hours per weekly lecture. This totals 16 hours for the term. During the summer, it will be 32 hours for the term [2 hours weekly]. Some students may need more time per week. Keep this is mind, and setup a consistent schedule to work on your online classes every week.
