Gerneral class information Classes are delivered in-person and via Zoom web meeting software on the day and time listed for the class.

Attendance is not required but I highly recommend that you attend the class in the classroom. Students who do so regularly have better grades.
If your cannot attend in person then I encourage you to attend the live lecture and be part of the “live studio audience”. Students who do this also have somewhat better grades. Links to the recordings will be posted on the class Schedule page for later viewing. If you cannot attend the class meeting you can use these recordings to see what was covered that day. You can also use the recordings for review.

All students: Join your first Zoom web meeting broadcast at least 10 minutes early to get the software downloaded and configured.
Please use a headset with microphone.
Do not use the built-in microphone on a laptop as it produces feedback and echoing.
If you cannot attend the first class meeting please call or email me that you cannot do so. If you do not you may be dropped from the class.

I can only be in one place at a time. I alternate between the Hutchinson and Willmar campuses depending on the day and week. Where's Waldo below shows which campus I will be on for the day.

I alternate between the Hutchinson and Willmar campuses so connecting with me face-to-face is complicated.
Your phone is the primary method to contact me. We can talk immediately or set up an appointment at a later time.
If I do not answer please leave a name, phone number, and a short description of why you called. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
