Class Schedule

(Updated: August 18, 2017)

 

Class: History 1009: World Civilization to 1450

Instructor: Dave Bush

Semester: Fall 2017

College: College of the Siskiyous

Online Platform: Canvas

 

Listed below are the important dates for the term including all assignment due dates.

Module web pages and assignments will open and close on the dates listed. Work opens at 12:01 a.m. on the start date and closes at 11:59 p.m. on the due date. Work must be submitted between these times. Most work, excluding the test, will be accepted late for up to twenty-four hours after the due date; beyond that, work will not be accepted late. My advice, submit work far in advance of the due date, so if something goes wrong in the last day or two, the work will already have been submitted.

Regarding the discussion boards, a minimum of three posts are required each week (Monday through Sunday), each post must be made on a different day, and at least one post must be made by Wednesday night. One post per module must be based on one of the assigned online films. (Of course, more than one post per day and more than three posts per week may be made.)

See the Syllabus and other documents in the Important Class Information (ICI) module for additional information on the discussions, quizzes, written assignments, test and much more.

I have listed the drop dates on the schedule. Confirm these dates with the Admissions Office.

Print this Class Schedule, and keep an eye on the dates.
