De Anza College, Cupertino, CA
WELCOME TO BARBARA LIECHTY'S PUBLIC WEBSITE FOR HEALTH 21 AND NUTRITION 10!
THERE IS NO IN-CLASS or ON-CAMPUS ORIENTATION FOR EITHER HEALTH 21 OR NUTRITION 10:
- Nutrition 10 and Health 21 are completely online classes administered using Catalyst, the campus online course management system. Only students enrolled in the class will have access to the class. Please bookmark the Catalyst site https://catalyst.deanza.edu. You will not have access to the class until the first day of spring quarter, Monday, April 6.
- There will be no campus meetings for either Nutrition 10 or Health 21. To demonstrate your intent to maintain your enrollment (to not be dropped as a 'no show'), students must logon to our Catalyst course site by Wednesday, April 8, 5:00 PM. Dropping students who are 'no shows' is College policy. Catalyst records logons. The instructor will monitor the site and will drop as 'no shows' students who have not logged on by the date and time above.
- All enrolled students are required to (students interested in enrolling are strongly encouraged to) complete all pages of the on-line orientation and electronically submit the required Student Information Form by Friday, April 10, 5:00 PM. Submitting the Student Information Form will serve as the indicator that you correctly completed the requirement. The Student Information Form will have a record of pages completed.
Note that completing the online orientation does not enroll you in a class, nor does it give you priority to enroll. The online orientation is an orientation to our course and to distance learning at De Anza. The spring, 2015, online orientation will be available on or about Monday, March 23. The online orientation can be accessed through the Distance Learning Center website: <http://www.deanza.edu/distance/>
- All enrolled students are required to have consistent, convenient, and reliable computer access and high speed internet service (see Minimum System Requirements in the course syllabus). Students must be able to and feel comfortable consistently accessing the class with a reliable computer/high speed internet, following all course policies, completing homework as required, taking exams and quizzes online in accordance with testing directions and the testing schedule, and communicating online (office hours are online). Course policies are on the syllabus. Review them because they are uniformly enforced with no exceptions. If you are not able to meet or are uncomfortable with any of the aforementioned, take an on-campus class.
- Students enrolled for the first time in an online class that uses Catalyst, De Anza's e-classroom software, are invited to attend either of two optional, face-to-face Catalyst orientation sessions the first week of classes: Tuesday, April 7, 5-6 PM, MLC 255 or Friday, April 10, 12:30-1:30 PM, MLC 255. The two sessions are identical, and no reservation is required. This orientation is sponsored by the Distance Learning Center.
- Student Success in this class requires TIME. Be prepared to spend at least 12 hours a week using and studying the course materials. Time Management skills are essential for staying on top of the material. Evaluate your priorities. Do not attempt to take this class if you are stretched too thin this quarter. Be realistic as to what you can accomplish with what time and energy you have to give to this class. There are no shortcuts to learning and mastering content.
- Online Tutoring with Smarthinking is available to all De Anza students. Login to MyPortal and go to the Students tab to find the Smarthinking link. The De Anza Student Success Center on campus supports learning by providing individual and group tutoring on a variety of subjects. Contact them to discuss your individual needs.
Thank you. I'm looking forward to spring quarter!
