This course requires that you have adequate computer skills and up-to-date and complete hardware and software capabilities that will allow you to access the course material, complete all assignments, and take tests. As we are working in an Internet environment over which neither instructor nor student has complete control, we all must make allowances for technical glitches, but it is important not to procrastinate, and it is important to save work-in-progress at regular intervals.
NOTE: Students are responsible for their own computer resources, software, Internet access, and e-mail account. For technical requirements, log on to www.smconline.org and link to "Tech Requirements".
This class is conducted exclusively online.
