TESC course assignments
#1
Hi all,

I have several out-of-town commitments the next few months and am trying to decide when to begin my TESC courses. Unfortunately, I don't know much beyond some basic vaguaries as to how the assignment deadlines work. Can anyone give me any clue? Would I be able to go out of town for a week?

I have been told by an advisor that the courses are broken into two-week modules, but I wondered if any of you had some personal experience as to what that means in terms of practical deadlines. Do they want something from you every two days or do they just give you a list of assignments that you have to complete sometime within the 2 weeks?

The mentors are usually pretty open to the fact that we have other commitments that sometimes have to come first. The online classes I have taken so far are broken down into either one week or two week modules. I am currently enrolled in an online class where the first two modules were one week, the next three are two week modules and then the last three are back to the one week schedule.

Most mentors will look for online discussion at least twice per week, but if you advise them ahead of time that you will be unavailable, they will most likely let you post in the discussion threads once you return and count it towards your discussion grade. Once you enroll at TESC, you can preview the online class and its calendar before actually registering for the class. That will better help you gauge what class might actually work best for your current life schedule.

Good luck deciding!

Thanks for the feedback....I have enrolled but I'm not sure where to access the course calendar. Where do I find that?

Do you have access to Blackboard?

I don't know--what's that?

Go in to MyEdison and log on. Then you can use the section for your class and BlackBoard.
I'm done!
