B Integrating Technology into the Classroom

HOMEWORK: It is expected that you will spend at least 1 - 2 hours ONLINE between face-to-face classes. If you pace yourself, this amounts to only 10 to 15 minutes per day! You will need to set aside 5-7 hours of time during the weeks we are not meeting face-to-face to complete your workload - this is about 45 minutes per day. There are also normal course homework expectations.
