About this Course: This course is delivered completely online. You must have consistent access to the
Internet. Please do not sign up for this course if you do not have access to the internet for extended
periods of time.
Learning at a distance may be a very different environment for many of you. You will generally set your
own schedules, participate in class activities at your convenience, and work at your own pace. You may
spend some additional time online during the first few weeks while you become acclimated to the
online class format and you may feel overwhelmed. You should also be prepared to spend
approximately 4-6 hours per week online completing lessons, activities, and participating in class
discussions. Finally, you may want to incorporate these tips to help you get started:

Set yourself a schedule -- check the course web site early in the class week to see what tasks
you'll need to work on for the week.

Become very familiar with the site and how to use it. It is a tool to help you learn!

Team up with your classmates to discuss class assignments and questions you might have.

Ask questions when you need answers. If you have problems, contact your instructor ASAP! I
will help you come up with a solution!
Grading / Evaluation: The course grade will be determined as follows:
Weekly Discussion Postings: Each week, you will have to prepare one discussion post; the required
activities for the post will be described in detail in the content session for each week. The postings
should be between 100 - 200 words. Each week, your post is due on Friday at 12.00 Noon, so there is
enough time for class mates to review your comments and pick one to reply to!!!. There are a total of 6
discussion postings (one per week). Each post will count 10 points, for a total of 60 points. The number
of points you receive each week will depend on the quality of your posts. You can post your answers
early - however, answers posted after the due date (Friday's at Noon) will not be accepted.
2. Replies to Discussion Postings: Class participation is encouraged in this course by allowing students to
reply to the comments posted by their classmates. Students will receive 5 points for their posted reply.
Replies need to be constructive and should be "value-added", contributing to the overall conversation
and learning process. Do not post replies that simply say good answer, I agree, thank you, your
welcome, etc. Differences of opinion, challenges, debates, etc. are encouraged; however, they should be
presented in a professional manner. Each reply should be at least one small paragraph (3-5 complete
sentences). Students may reply to more than one discussion post but they will receive credit for only
one reply. The total points for replies are 30 points. The replies each week are due every Sunday at
11.59 pm CST. Replies posted late will not be accepted.
3.Class Project: Visit the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion website (www.mypyramid.gov)
and analyze your food intake (1 day food diary), your energy expenditure (1 day physical activity
information), and determine your energy balance. Please print and attach the following documents:
1.
o
Nutrient Intakes
o
Dietary Guidelines Recommendations
o
MyPyramid Recommendations (your pyramid stats)
o
Physical Activity Results
o
Energy Balance Summary
The project will count for 60 points towards the class total. Projects need to be posted on the Project
Forum that has been especially created for this purpose. Projects have to be posted no later than 11.59
pm CST on August 12, 2012.
4. Quizzes: 6 online quizzes are provided to test your understanding of the materials presented in the
power point lectures. Once you decide to take the quiz, you will have 20 minutes to complete it - you
only have one attempt - you cannot come back and take it later once you open the quiz!!! Quizzes are
due on Sunday 11.59 pm CST each week.
