Scroll down for a video description of the course requirements and grading standards.

Participants will complete twelve lessons in sequence.

Each lesson includes a video and website(s) to explore.  Participants will post a short review about one of the resources found while exploring the website on the course forum.

The final project for this course is to create a portfolio with twenty-four links to useful resources found while exploring the websites in this course.  The portfolio can be created in MS Word, Symbaloo, or Pinterest.  Tutorials for how to use each of these tools is presented in Lesson 3.

Requirements for passing the course or a letter grade is based on points earned for participant in lessons, completion of lesson assignments, and completion of the final project.

The total possible points = 120

Course Participation = 24 Points (2 points for each lesson)
Lesson Assignments = 48 points (4 points for each lesson)
Final Project Portfolio = 48 points (2 points for each link to a resource)

Points earned will be divided by the total for a percentage to determine the final grade for the course:
