I generally tend to answer within 24-48 hours except when you write your email Friday late afternoon and, for this case, you will see my response only on the following Monday.
- Online discussions and regular participation is required
This is not a self-paced course. Activities and assignments are to be completed on a weekly basis. Directions for assignments and activities will be provided each week.
- The ebook Introduction to HTML & CSS can be downloaded in many different formats from Smashwords Publisher website - the cover is dark red ISBN 9781311882196 - this ebook was developed by CNIT staff, it is free but any donation will go towards the labs/materials for CNIT courses!
- Weekly Homework Assignments: the weekly homework assignment is required. Late homework assignments will lose 10% per week. I DO NOT REGRADE ASSIGNMENT ONCE IT HAS BEEN GRADED (I only start grading assignments after the due date, until then, you can make any changes you need).
- Final Exam - taken online in Canvas, Multiple choice and True/False; Comprehensive: meaning it covers all the material and assignments during the course.
Attendance and Dropping
- In an online class, attendance means logging into Canvas and participating in the class activities on a regular basis, at least once a week. It also means submitting assignments on time or letting the instructor know if you will be submitting late work, and taking the quizzes during the scheduled times.
- This class will finish really fast - only 6 weeks and the dates established by the college for dropping from this class are very limited too. You need to pay attention and keep on track with the assignments of this course to be successful.
- If you don’t drop but stop participating and do not complete assignments, you will receive a failing grade at the end of the semester. I also reserve the right to drop any student who has not logged into Insight for more than a week - exactly because this is just a 1-unit course.
|Homework assignments||50 points total|
|Comprehensive final exam||20 points total|
|Online participation (active participation in forums)||10 points total|
ATTENTION: Active participation in the forums are only considered when you submit posts or replies by Sunday 4PM so other students may still have time to read your post and even reply. After the following topic is opened, you will not be able to post in the forum of the previous topic anymore.
|90 - 100% of total points = A|
|80 - 89% of total points = B|
|70 - 79% of total points = C|
|60 - 69% of total points = D|
|Less or equal 59% of total points = F|
IF YOU SELECT P/NP, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THIS CLASS FOR ANY CERTIFICATE OF THE COLLEGE AND THE INSTRUCTOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MODIFY THE P/NP TO A LETTER GRADE. THIS IS A STATE RULE, IT IS NOT A COLLEGE RULE!

Standards of Conduct
Students who register in CCSF classes are required to abide by the CCSF Student Code of Conduct. Violation of the code is basis for referral to the Student Conduct Coordinator or dismissal from class or from the College. See the Office of Student Affairs and Wellness.
Collaborating on or copying of tests or homework in whole or in part will be considered an act of academic dishonesty and result in a grade of 0 for that test or assignment. I encourage students to share information and ideas, but not their work.
If you need classroom or testing accommodations because of a disability, or have emergency medical information to share with me, or need special arrangements in case the building needs to be evacuated, please make an appointment with me as soon as possible. Students seeking disability related accommodations are encouraged to also register with Disabled Students Programs and Services - you can get more information at the DSPS website.
