All assignment exercises MUST be completed in the time period noted--see the individual exercises for the precise due dates and times. If you have computer problems, you can fax, snail mail, or hand carry your assignments to me. Please make sure you save a copy of everything you send in!
Note: For some units, you will only have a day, and some units must be completed over a weekend, so please plan your schedule - do not tell me that you have to work or plan to be away on vacation when an assignment is due. You may always turn in assignments early! Whenever possible, I will give you two days to complete an assignment and an extra day around a weekend. But due to the compressed summer school schedule, this is not always possible!
Note: Do not download all assignments at the beginning of the semester as I am in the process of updating them now!
For discussion responses, respond to the entire class list at firstname.lastname@example.org
For all other assignments, respond directly to your professor at email@example.com

Instructions for logging into Blackboard for taking the Reading Mastery Question tests -- see below:
Username Lookup/Password Set:
Follow the instructions below to access Blackboard.
If you receive errors from VIP (either when looking up your username or setting the password), please carefully record the error message and code and contact the UTS Help Desk, 777-1800 or https://helpdesk.uts.sc.edu to place a support ticket for problem resolution. Please supply your username and USC ID (SSN) when placing the ticket.
Legal passwords can be a minimum of 5 characters and a maximum of 14. They can contain any alphanumeric character (A-Z/0-9) and the $ sign. Case doesn't matter. Your password will expire every six months, or six months from the last time you re-set or change it (unless your departmental network manager has selected another expiration interval for your department -- check with your network manager for expiration rules for your unit).
If you enter your password incorrectly seven times when attempting to login, you will be locked out of Blackboard temporarily (this is a security feature for your protection). To get back in immediately, just go to VIP and return to the Technology link to re-set your password. Change your password often to protect yourself. You can also return to VIP/Technology link if you forget your password and need to re-set it.
