After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:
This course requires disciplined independent practice and individual completion of assignments. Although Distance Learning provides you with a flexible schedule to meet your professional, personal, and academic responsibilities, you are expected to follow the syllabus and submit assignments on time and on schedule. Assignments, quizzes, and initial forum posts may be submitted up to one week late, but will lose 5 points per day late. Follow-up posts will not receive any credit if posted after the due date. After one week past the due date, assignments, quizzes, and forum posts may not be submitted for credit. All work must be submitted by the end of the class session. No assignments will be accepted after the class end date.
Each week, you will be assigned chapters from the class textbook to read. You will be evaluated on your understanding of the material in your readings through your forum contributions, assignments, quizzes, and final project. In order to grasp the weekly course objectives and participate fully in the discussions, it is highly recommended that you read each week’s assigned reading chapters before participating in the week’s forum discussion, taking your weekly quizzes, and completing your weekly assignments.
Students are required to research weekly topics on the Internet and use their research findings in their forum posts and weekly assignments to support their points.
Each week you will be expected to participate in one or more class discussions on the forum. Each week’s discussion questions can be found on the forum itself. Each one of you will have different and unique experiences and points of view related to the topics that we are learning each week, and we can all learn from each other by sharing our thoughts and ideas together on the forum. Your participation in the forums unleashes the power of synergy in our classroom. To facilitate this interaction, please be prompt when posting your forum work for each week, allowing time for the others to actively engage in the dialogue.
It is a requirement to conduct independent research (outside of the textbook and assigned readings) for each discussion. However, students should demonstrate their own understanding of the material they learn from their sources (in their own words) and avoid copying and pasting from websites. You are required to include in-text citations in APA format within the body of your post to show where you are discussing information you learned from your source (remember that citations give credit for the ideas you learned from your source, not necessary the exact words of the source). You are also required to include a reference list in APA format at the bottom of your post. While independent research is important and required, it is also encouraged that you draw on your own personal and professional experience in answering the forum questions.
Please read the following guidelines carefully, as your grade is determined by compliance with all of the guidelines.
Forum Timing: Although the due date for both your initial post, with your answers to the week’s questions, and your two follow-up posts is 11:55 PM ET on Sunday, you are encouraged to post your initial post no later than Thursday, to allow time for your classmates to read and reply to your post. Be sure to read all of the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to any questions or requests for clarification. You are encouraged to conduct research and use other sources to support your answers.
In this course, you will take 10 End-of-Lesson Quizzes on the CIW Online Resources website (http://education.certification-partners.com/ciw/). Instructions for registering on the CIW Online Resources website, as well as your access code, are provided in your Week 1 Lesson, under Lessons in the classroom.
Important Note: Upon completion of each quiz, you must take a screenshot (screen capture) of your score and submit it in the APUS classroom along with your weekly Assignment. Your screenshot must be an actual image file (.jpg, .gif, .tiff, .png, etc.) and not a Word file. In order to receive credit for each quiz you must create an actual screen capture (image file) and not simply copy and paste your score.
A passing score is 75%. You will receive the full 10 points on the quiz portion of each week’s assignment for passing that week’s quiz(zes), as long as your score is 75% or higher on each quiz! You are allowed to re-take the quizzes on the CIW website, so if you do not pass a quiz on your first attempt, keep trying until you achieve a passing score. Please watch the video available in each week’s assignment instructions for a demonstration of how to locate the quizzes and what you should submit for your screenshots.
You will have a Midterm Project due at the end of Week 4. Detailed instructions for the midterm project will be posted in the Assignments area of the classroom at the beginning of Week 4.
You will have a Final Project due at the end of Week 8. Detailed instructions for the final project will be posted in the Assignments area of the classroom at the beginning of Week 8.
Standards for Original Work:
All work submitted must be original work. Incidents of academic dishonesty will result in you failing the assignment, and repeat incidents will result in failing the course. I check forum posts and assignments regularly for incidents of plagiarism and academic dishonesty. Please read and understand the University policy on academic dishonesty (Plagiarism Policy). When writing about ideas learned from your sources, you must summarize the ideas in your own words (rather than using direct quotations from your sources). Be sure to provide appropriate citations and references on your forum posts and assignments to give credit to your sources for the ideas you are paraphrasing and writing about, even though you will not be directly quoting from your sources.
Furthermore, all Web development work in this course must be new and unique. You cannot reuse or build upon Web pages you previously created in another course or created for personal or work reasons. You are expected to build a brand new website for this course, adding pages to it every week as directed in the weekly assignments.
