  • A syllabus and course schedule
  • Assignments with clear instructions and timely feedback
  • Timely responses to questions
  • Clear guidelines about how long it will take to get homework and quiz scores and responses to questions
  • Enforcement of netiquette and protocols

You should not expect:

  • 24/7 support
    Honor the instructor’s virtual office hours. Your instructor will not be available during the weekend.
  • Help with prerequisite skills
