Instructor: Jose F. LONGORIA
NOTE: GEO 2200 requires time and discipline. Students in this class need to: (1) follow the instructions given at the beginning of the term; (2) do the browsing for specific activities, and (3) devote time to read the posted materials in the website. Consequently this course requires time so if you are busy, or overloaded with courses, or have a busy personal schedule, or plan to travel during the semester, or if you feel you will learn better in a face-to-face (traditional) modality you may not be suited to a course like this, if you have to make a change do it now. The first two weeks of the semester are programmed to give students time to become familiarized with the way these asynchronous / hybird courses are conducted and to become used to the Web site.
Work for the frist two weeks of the semester is devoted to getting students familiar with teaching/learning style of the course and for students gaining acquaintance with the online procedures used in this course, which will be strictly followed during the semester. The sooner you start the sooner you will be prepared for the semester!
