I haven't taught this course in a few years. The last time I did, I taught it in a face-to-face classroom and enhanced it through MJC's online learning management system (LMS). A few assignments were completed online, but most assignments were completed and/or submitted in the face-to-face classroom. To supplement learning, I included many useful handouts online that weren't available anywhere else (exam study guides, outline examples, canceled class announcements, etc.).

Field trips might be required. Not repeatable. (A-F or P/NP)
