Office Hours
Because I am teaching asynchronous courses, 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 11am-12pm (unless otherwise noted). If we find, as the semester progresses, that very few of you are utilizing this set time, we can reconsider our options and have virtual office hours by appointment through either Collaborate Ultra or Google Meet. In addition, I am 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. You have LOTS of options to reach out to me. PLEASE do not hesitate to do so. Communication if often the key to SUCCESS.
