This interactive video (ITV) course is delivered using a videoconferencing system. It allows students to attend the course on a SPECIFIC DAY/TIME and CAMPUS other than the campus where the instructor originates the course. Therefore, distance learners must attend each class session at the SPECIFIC DAY/TIME and SPECIFIC LOCATION.
It is recommended that students also have an email address and access to a computer with Internet connection for “outside class” communication with instructor and classmates
