How do I get feedback?

bulletMost instructors respond (via email and in the discussion forum) to student questions regarding assignments, readings, or other issues within 24 hours (Monday-Friday). This is more than what traditional students get! Find out about your teacher's response policy.

bulletYour instructor may respond to your email messages on weekends, but he/she may choose to spend time with family and friends instead. Can you blame them? 

bulletPlease don't expect your instructor to respond to email or forum questions on holidays.

bulletIt takes much longer to grade exams, term papers, and other major projects. Response time for these types of assignments ranges from a few days to a couple of weeks or more. Check with your instructor to find out how long he/she will take to grade coursework. 

bulletMost instructors communicate with their students via regular email and/or weekly announcements, clarifications on assignments, etc. Learn from their example and stay in touch. 

bulletIf you fall behind, before you drop the course, contact your instructor to see if you can come up with a realistic plan to help you catch up!
