SOCI

SOCI 1170 – Introduction to Sociology

Jody Bishop (jabishop@sscc.edu)

  • 1. This course is entirely web-based and can be taken anywhere there is an internet connection.
  • 2. The course uses MyELearn as the delivery platform. Students will need to be familiar with the basic operations of the MyELearn learning platform. Students will be required to log on weekly.
  • 3. It must be said that this course will carry at least the same workload as any face-to-face course. You’ll need to be consistent with your participation, the completion of assignments in a timely manner, reading and overall study.
  • 4. The online course requires self-discipline and a lot of self-direction in the absence of in-class lecture and face-to-face interaction. You will need to rely upon much of your own insight, work ethic, and study methods to really learn and internalize the material from this course, more so than in regular face-to-face courses.
  • 5. New course content will be assigned weekly. You will be evaluated based on quizzes, open-ended answer exercise assignments, discussion board posts, and exam performances.
  • 6. Your textbook is the primary content for this course.
