The German Program makes GERM 290 available online in the hopes that it will be more convenient for students of all majors to complete a course satisfying the Carolina Core Aesthtetic and Interpretive Understanding (AIU), Literature, or Humanities requirement, wherever they may be during the summer. The distributed learning version of GERM 290 has the same learning outcomes as the face-to-face version of the course, with adjustments to the written activities and assignments, as well as testing, to make them more appropriate to the six-week, online format. This version of the course has several shorter and longer written essays, instead of certain group activities conducted in class and the term paper of the face-to-face format. Instead of quizzes, a midterm, and a final, there are five module tests and a final exam. The course is ADA compliant according the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Please address the following issues:
GERM 290 – what is the grade penalty for late work? You might want to include a rubric for the discussion board posts so that students know what is expected of them in those discussions – how many responses to their classmates, what kinds of posts, etc.
