Fall semester information for online classes and coronavirus related policies.
The Korean government and the Chungnam National University Administration have decided that the best policy this Fall is to hold all of our classes as online. That is why you will be required to access the cyber lecture system for the entire semester, unless things dramatically improve. Of course we are all hoping that physical lectures will start again, but that is a best-case scenario. Until then please follow the instructions below.
Some other professors will have slightly different approaches to the cyber lectures they organize, but you are to follow my instructions for the classes that I teach.
All cyber lecture content will be available through the CNU portal where you can login with your ID and access the class. The content will include written instructions from the professor about studying, homework and assignments, links to videos and audio that you were expected to watch and listen to.
All of the information will be hosted through my website Koreanheroes.net and you will be able to scroll through what you were expected to do week by week. The uploaded content will not be taken down so if you need to refer to something you can simply scroll back to week one or week too and look at it again later.
You will be able to login and access each week’s lecture content from Monday morning to Sunday night at midnight each week. This is both to make it easier to make time for studying and because any students who become ill will need the flexibility.
***This is very important: You are required to be logged in and to access the page for a minimum of one hour to get credit for your attendance. If you do not do so you will not get credit for the attendance and you will fail the course. So it is highly recommended not to delay until the last minute. For example, do not wait until Sunday night each week to log on, in case something goes wrong. In addition, this is the required textbook for the class. You can order it through the Chungnam National University bookstore online. This book is essential, especially this semester with all the online content and lack of personal interaction. If you read the textbook and understand the content, I can guarantee you will get a good grade. If you have trouble with it, that is alright- there are slides and this website and you can email me any questions you have. Make sure you order a copy ASAP.
