6) Participation and Attendance Policy
In order to receive a completion certificate and/or graduate credit, you must properly and consistently participate in the course.
- As of the course start date, you have seven days to log in and begin participating in the discussion board.
- You must not be absent from the course for more than seven consecutive days throughout the course. We consider an absent learner to be one who does not log into the course, does not turn in assignments on time, does not contribute to the discussion board, or does not respond to the facilitator's email.
If you do not meet the participation and attendance policy standards, you may still remain in the course and have access to the course readings, materials, and discussions. However, your facilitator will not evaluate your assignments.
The Online Teaching Methodology course is the only WHRO Education Online Professional Development Course currently approved for graduate credit. JMU notes James Madison University graduate credit is available at an additional fee of only $90 per credit hour plus a $20 service fee.
Approximately two weeks after your course begins, your facilitator will notify you by email of your graduate credit opportunities and specific instructions on how to apply. You are responsible for registering for the graduate credit by the deadline which is the last day of the class.
You can find more info here. http://education.whro.org/images/profdev/docs/otm-schedule.pdf
Transcripts: JMU doesn’t automatically mail transcripts to all students when a course is complete. Once your grade is posted, you may request a transcript. This may take up to 2 weeks after the last day of the course for processing (you can log into the JMU system to see if your grade has been posted.) There’s no fee for transcripts. To request a transcript, just go to the registrar’s website and http://www.jmu.edu/registrar, and click on “Transcript Request.”
