For a hybrid class, a part of the learning is also expected to be conducted online. General Policies Communication The best communication is face to face communication in the classroom and my office. We can also use emails, discussion boards, office phone, and D2L Chat when we cannot meet face to face. Email Policy 1. Email is a great way of communication if you write the email subject like this: it6753 – your real subject 2. Per FERPA regulation, please use your university email to communicate with instructors. This can verify you identity and protect privacy. I reserve the right not to reply any email that I cannot verify sender's identity. Emails without proper subject line or unverified sender address are likely to be categorized as spam, and are NOT guaranteed to be replied. Student work submission All assignments will be posted in D2L. Submission instructions will be given for each individual assignment. Not following these submission instructions will result in point deduction. Check D2L for the due date of each required submission. Late submission is generally allowed but with up to 20% penalty. Generally, no submission is allowed outside the D2L system unless explicitly instructed to do so. Be sure to submit the work well ahead of due time. Excuses like website or computer error will not be accepted after the due date. Grades and re-grading Grades will be posted in D2L, generally within a week from the due date. If you think there is an error, make a re-grading request by e-mail within one (1) week of grade posting. Please make a follow-up appointment (via e-mail) to meet the instructor during office hours for review of the results of any reassessment. A request for reassessment will not be granted if more than two weeks have passed since the grade in question was posted. Check your grades in D2L regularly. Bonus points There may be a maximum of 5 bonus points to your overall grade. Bonus points are offered with assignments and exams. Details will be given in each assignment/exam. Curve The instructor reserves the right to decide if there will be any curving of grades and how much per each grading item. Make-ups NO make-ups will be given if you miss a test or an in-class exercise for reasons other than a documented religious observance, a documented illness, or a documented work-related reason. 3

Announcement Important announcements will be made to the class electronically through the D2L News as well as in class sessions. It is important that you check your D2L account regularly for announcements, new assignments, grade postings, and other discussions. University Policies Academic Honesty SPSU values academic integrity. Therefore all students must understand the meaning and consequences of cheating, plagiarism and other academic offenses. Work submitted for this course must represent your own efforts. Copying assignments or tests, or allowing others to copy your work, will not be tolerated. Note that introducing syntactic changes into a copied program is still considered plagiarism. The grade for all involved parties for any course work (homework, assignment, project, programming, or test) will be zero if plagiarism is evidenced. Academic dishonesty is an extremely serious offense. All cases of academic dishonesty will be dealt with in accordance with the policies of the University as published in the Undergraduate Catalog and Graduate Student Handbook. Penalties may include expulsion from the University. “A faculty member reserves the right to remove any student from his or her course if the student’s behavior is of a disruptive nature or if there is evidence of academic dishonesty.” (SPSU Catalog) SPSU has an Honor Code and a new procedure relating to when academic misconduct is alleged. All students should be aware of them. Information about the Honor Code and the misconduct procedure may be found at Disability Statement “A student at Southern Polytechnic State University who has a disabling condition and needs academic accommodations has a responsibility to voluntarily identify him/herself as having a disability by scheduling an appointment with the Disability Services Coordinator as soon as possible.” (SPSU Catalog). The coordinator can be contacted at 678-915-7244 4
