Fall 2014 classes start
Monday, August 18, 2014
Access to online classes begins about Aug 11th.
If you are new to Desire2Learn, plan to attend a one-hour orientation on campus. There is also a troubleshooting link on the Distance Education page. Click on it and make check your computer is compatible with D2L.
Orientation instructions and syllabi are available as soon as D2L is opened one week before the official start of the semester. Log onto http://myvcccd.edu, click My Courses, and enter the D2L class site. Students must pass the online orientation (for each course you are taking from me) by 9 p.m. Thurs., August 21st, in order to avoid being dropped as a "no show.". Students on the waitlist will be moved into the course in place of students who are not attending.
Students on the wait list have FULL access to online courses. Read everything and take the orientation quizzes! You will be added if you complete those tasks. Add codes are not distributed to professors until the second week of the semester. I assign them to the first five students on the wait list
ENROLLMENTS ARE LIMITED: REGISTER EARLY!
