The Online section

The course is taught in two formats.

The "online" section meets face-to-face for three exams. All other instruction and learning takes place online, through D2L, stevespence.net, and a variety of online tools and platforms. You will note in D2L that the majority of assignments are due by 11:59 p.m. on Monday. You should complete these assignments during the week preceding this due date.

In addition, as our syllabus states:

Please note that the course requirements include substantial work using Adobe Photoshop, Canva, and WordPress. If you do not have or cannot run these programs at home, your schedule must allow you to spend time in the Design Lab during available hours.

The Hybrid section

We will meet during our scheduled class time on Tuesdays and Thursdays, on campus in the M144 Design Lab (map). In addition, each week you will complete online assignments that always will be due by 11:59 p.m. on the following Monday.
