Office Hours
Student (Office) Hours: Since this is an asynchronous course, I will have online hours set aside to meet specifically with students. These will be through Collaborate Ultra (inside CourseDen). I will be available Tuesdays from 10am-11am and on Thursdays from 10am-11am (unless otherwise noted). Note: Each morning prior to our office (student) hours, I will post a link in “Announcements” that will launch Collaborate Ultra and take you to our “meeting place.” In addition, virtual student (office) hours may be scheduled by appointment and held via either Collaborate Ultra or Google Meet. If you wish to schedule such, email me to do so. Along with virtual student (office) hours, I am also available via email through both my UWG email and also through CourseDen email (please use bjames@westga.edu for more immediate responses since I will get notifications on my phone) during normal business hours (9 am-5 pm). If you email me during times other than those listed, my response may be delayed. Note: Please be sure to add a subject to your email. The standard subject line will be the course name, so you’ll need to change that to alert me to the actual subject of your email. You have LOTS of options to reach out to me. PLEASE do not hesitate to do so. Communication if often the key to SUCCESS.
