Additional information for off-campus (CAETE) students
Given that the lectures are posted on-line on the day of the on-campus lecture, it is expected that the students taking the course remotely can follow the same due dates as the on-campus students. You should establish a regular schedule for watching the recorded lectures and for turning in the work. A one-week grace period is allowed for all assignments: your homework must be received by the conclusion of business (5 pm Mountain time) by Prof. Maksimovic, no more than one week after the on-campus due date. Assignments will not be accepted after that date.
To submit your work, off-campus students have the following options, in the order of preference. In all cases, keep a copy of your work, and write your name and email address on the front page.
- Scan your work, and submit via Desire2Learn (D2L). For scanning, use 1-bit black-and-white, at 150-300 dpi, with all pages in a single pdf file. Work submitted as multiple images will not be graded and will receive no credit.
- Scan your work, and e-mail as an attachment to Prof. Maksimovic. For scanning, use 1-bit black-and-white, at 150-300 dpi, with all pages in a single pdf file. Work submitted as multiple images will not be graded and will receive no credit.
