My classes are online, asynchronous, distant education based. Students use Canvas, our college Learning Management System to access class content around the clock. There are NO scheduled meeting times. Canvas automatically records attendance as you read course content and complete assignments. Course assignments include chapter quizzes, crossword puzzles, and narrative discussion questions. Students are expected to pass an open book, timed mid-term and final exam with no less than a 70% passing grade, for acceptance of course work by the California Department of Real Estate.

Students without a textbook, will not pass my courses. Students are urged to have a PC with a highspeed internet connection. While my classes do not include video meetings, I use YouTube video supplements to reinforce real estate concepts and will include a few Zoom drop-in sessions for general RE discussions.

Please note my preclass emails are SENT TO STUDENT'S COLLEGE EMAIL ADDRESS in the two week period before each class start date.
