Please note that web-enhanced classes meet at least once a week in the classroom and are not listed below. Also, some of our online classes do require testing on campus. Some classes require your attendance at orientations on campus, and some have documents you can download that orient you to the course.

Check each course carefully for its requirements (below). If you do not have a mandatory GeorgiaVIEW orientation, you may opt to attend a 30-MINUTE OVERVIEW WORKSHOP in the Maple Center Lab (Room 1203) or the Blakely Center (153) as listed below. The workshops are limited in space, so come early if you want a seat. In addition, GeorgiaVIEW@BC provides important online resources for students.

Sally Bishai, sally.bishai@bainbridge.edu

Orientation
A mandatory orientation session specially designed for my online sections of Human Communication will be conducted in two parts; the first involves attending a face-to-face orientation at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, in 269 (BC). The second part is completely online and involves shooting your first video for the class.

If this is your FIRST online course, it is strongly suggested that you also attend one of the orientations in the Maple or Blakely Centers (BCEC); again, you will need the information covered here to get started in your assignments the first week.

About the Course
Human Communication, or “hComm,” as it’s affectionately referred to by my students, is a course that focuses on public speaking (informative and persuasive speeches, in particular) but also teaches students to become effective (yet kind) speech critics.

The course is also designed to build confidence in all aspects of life; if you ask fellow students who have taken Human Communication with me in semesters past, they will (hopefully) tell you that:

1)   Everyone is “in the same boat,” with regard to nervousness…at first, anyway. (Aka “don’t worry.”)

2)   The class is more fun than you’d expect. (Aka “you can bring your daily life into the ‘classroom’…and vice versa.”) And..

3)   Success in the course requires your dedication to the material and your timely completion of assignments. (Aka “just because it’s a fun class doesn’t mean it’s a slack class!”) 

Technology Requirements
For this course, you MUST have four things:

First, access to a VIDEO CAMERA capable of somehow transmitting a seven-minute video to the Internet. Some acceptable options are:

**A FLIP camera (there is one available for checkout in the library)

**A Webcamera

NOTE: The video camera option on your cell phone or digital camera is NOT an acceptable option due to camera shake and poor sound quality.

Second, access to a TRIPOD; furthermore, you also must USE that tripod to create your videos. Camera shake will result in an automatic zero.

Third, a YOUTUBE ACCOUNT; you will need to create a Youtube account with your first initial, followed by the first four letters of your last name, followed by SUN, and year.

So if Jimi Hendrix enrolled for the Summer 2010 semester, his account would be titled JHendSUN2010.

NOTE: In semesters past, some students have opted to burn their video assignments to CD or DVD and leave the disc in my mailbox; this is fine, so long as I receive the disc before the due date.

Fourth, a GeorgiaView EMAIL account (the one hooked up to this course’s website); you will need to check this at least three times a week, and during some weeks, four or more times.

Fifth, a textbook (required) called The Art of Public Speaking, by Stephen Lucas.


How to Succeed
As many of the instructors on this page have already mentioned, online courses are NOT easier than courses that meet “in real life.” If nothing else, the very fact that you don’t have a professor “in your face” and reminding you of assignments at every turn should hint at the importance of self-motivation in an online course. Also, this course has at least one (brief) video due every week, not to mention independent textbook readings (and quizzes on each chapter), application assignments ... and, of course, exams (three total over the semester) To succeed in this class, all you have to do is keep up with the assignments, and ask questions when you’re unsure of something. It would, of course, behoove you to also remember course guidelines (aka “No late assignments accepted,” “Grammatical and typographical errors preclude getting an A on an assignments,” and the famous “Thou shalt not diss thy classmate, only the errors made in thy classmate’s speech,” etc.).

Best wishes to you and looking forward to an excellent semester!

About the Course
Computer Fundamentals is a required class for just about every degree available at Bainbridge College. It is necessary to be able to function on the computer in just about any career field you choose. This class will not make a “geek” out of you, but it will help you to feel comfortable with the computer, utilizing word processing, spreadsheets, presentation slide shows, and the Internet.


Technology Requirements
You will attach files in the GeorgiaVIEW course room for grading, do web searches, and create spreadsheets and documents as well as a presentation. We will use Microsoft Office 2007. I will help you, but the responsibility will fall squarely on your shoulders. You will also need the introductory CD that comes with the textbook, so if you buy a used book, make sure the CD is still inside the back cover and is not scratched.


How to Succeed
Do not procrastinate! Do your work on time and submit it on time. I do not allow late work, so please do not get mad when I will not accept it. Ask for help when you need it, not after you have made a bad grade! I am here to help.

About the course
Do you have a computer, but don’t know how to make it work for you? This course will make computing more user-friendly and lay the foundation for using the power of your computer in your academic pursuits. Although it seems ironic to use computers to teach computing, I do not make any assumptions about your skill levels. You will learn about Windows Vista and the new Windows 7, and the Office 2007 suite components: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access. Labs and online assignments will be used to compliment text reading assignments.

Technology requirements
You will need a computer with internet access and a copy of either Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 (other programs, such as MS Works, will not suffice). Student versions of Office 2007 are available online from Microsoft for as little as $59.95. You will find it helpful to have a USB flash drive (sometimes called a jump drive or keychain drive) to copy and transport your work projects. USB drives are available at Wal-Mart for under $10. If you do not have these, or cannot afford to buy them, you might want to consider a traditional course where the computers and software are provided by the college.

How to succeed
This class is centered on lab projects that help bring the use of computers into your comfort zone. There are 10 lab assignments and 7 online discussions, and the completion of these projects makes up 30% of your grade. The projects are based upon reading assignments, so you will need to budget your time so that you can devote enough time for both reading, projects, and online discussions (which will be monitored for online participation). Turn in projects and exams on time, and you can expect to do well.


Donnie Collins, donnie.collins@bainbridge.edu

Orientation: Although not required, it would be very beneficial for you to attend one of the web- based course orientation meetings to be held on the Blakely Center. I will be at the orientations and look forward to the opportunity to meet you there. This course is hosted entirely on the GeorgiaView course management system, and you will receive valuable information about using this program as well as other information about taking online courses at BC. Additional orientation information will be presented when you visit the course pages on GeorgiaView.  

About the course
Not only is this Computer Fundamentals course a requirement for most degree programs, it offers you the opportunity to learn skills (or to further hone those you may already have) that will help you in all of your courses and life in general. Get extra credit on those papers by presenting them in a proper format using word processing. Record and analyze that data for those projects using a spreadsheet. Make a compelling presentation to your classmates and your teachers using presentation graphics. All of these skills will be taught in this course, using the most widely used set of computer application programs in the world--Office 2007--including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Technology requirements
This is an online course about computer software, so not surprisingly you will absolutely have to have access to a computer connected to the internet with certain system and application software installed on it. Most importantly, you must have Microsoft Office 2007 on the computer. You cannot use previous versions of this application suite because of the major difference in the user interface which was introduced in Office 2007. You can download a trial copy of this software directly from Microsoft if you have a high speed broadband connection. Microsoft frequently offers deep discounts on this software for students.

How to succeed
The biggest obstacle to succeeding in an online course is also one of its most popular attributes-- freedom of place and time. Since there are no set class times, it is very easy to procrastinate.  Don’t do it. The work in the course must be completed on time and in the order in which it is assigned. The textbook introduces each individual program in great detail with very specific, step-by-step instructions. This is followed by review and assessment activities that offer less and less detailed instruction. Finally, challenges expect you to have learned what you need to know to complete them before you attempt them. If you complete the assignments in order and on time and you take the quizzes on the dates they are assigned, you are sure to succeed in the course. If you don’t feel that you have the self-discipline required for an online course, you may want to register for one of the many traditional sections of this course offered each term. 


Orientation: Web orientations will be held at the Blakely Center (BCEC) on Aug. 17 at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. You may also attend one of the orientations in 1203 in the Maple Center (BC, schedule at top of this page). Attending an orientation is not mandatory but strongly recommended. You will learn how to access your course in GeorgiaVIEW and other helpful information to help you succeed. I will be available Tuesday, August 24 at the BCEC Center at 4:30 p.m.

About the Course

This course is designed as an interdisciplinary examination of the major stylistic trends in western culture from early man through the Renaissance. While the art and literature from the periods under consideration will receive primary emphasis, attention will also be given to historical backgrounds and the prevailing world views. The course is arranged chronologically, but no attempt is made at being comprehensive. Rather, selected topics that are representative of major styles are discussed in some depth.


A chief aim of the course is to enable students to evolve working definitions and understanding of selected styles, which will enable them to employ these definitions for analysis of the leading arts and ideas of the western world and help them understand the present by realizing the heritage of the past. This is a two-hundred level course; therefore, students are expected to perform at the level of college sophomores in verbal and written communication and in research techniques.

You must purchase the textbook: Fiero, Gloria K.  Landmarks in Humanities. 2nd edition. McGraw-Hill: New York, 2009.
