Q. How will my Biol 1430 Nutrition Virtual class work this fall?
Thank you for your interest in the Biology 1430 Nutrition course this fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic , none of our lectures will be meeting on- ground for the fall 2020 semester. You will have a virtual class which will meet based on your scheduled class time that you signed up for. Virtual lectures will be held during class time. During these virtual lectures, course material will be discussed, questions will be answered, interactive class activities will take place, working on "at home" practice activities together, tutoring, etc. Each of those sessions will be recorded so that you will have access if your schedule does not permit you to attend class that day.
You will need to purchase a copy of the Nutrition Concepts and Controversies, 14th edition; authors: Frances S. Sizer and Eleanor N. Whitney; published by Cengage Learning. This book may be purchased or rented from the bookstore. No access code is needed for this class. All course materials, other than the textbook, are in the Biology 1430 Nutrition eLearn website. To assist with everyone starting on the course maters in a timely manner, the first three textbook chapters are provided as e-chapters.
You will have two unproctored quizzes for each chapter and one chapter controversy along with three activity quizzes. These quizzes can be taken from any location which has internet access. In addition to the quizzes, you will have two proctored exams one of which is a midterm and the other is a final exam. The two proctored exams can be taken by using the Honorlock test proctoring software from any location which has internet access or you can make an appointment and use the on-ground proctoring on campus.
