Recent updates on my website hosting service have disabled the web discussion board software used for the TEC 912 online course.
Until I am able to fix the broken web discussion board software or set up a replacement web discussion board you will not be able to view or post messages to the web discussion board.
Send any messages or assignments designated for the web discussion board directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion that this might cause. Please contact me if you have questions.

Instructor's Office Hours: 11.28.16
In this virtual online course environment, I am "in my office" 24/7/365. I monitor incoming email correspondence on my smartphone, tablet, laptop and desktop computer and respond throughout the day/evening/weekend.
I will make every effort to respond to email correspondence within 24 hours. If you have not received a reply within 24 hours, you can assume that your message or my reply was not successfully delivered. If that is the case, please leave voicemail on my GoogleVoice number (559.495.1919) with your name, course number and a phone number where I can reach to to troubleshoot the issue.
If you need to speak with me on the phone about other issues, the quickest way to reach me will be to send an email message that includes your course number, your question and a phone number at which I can reach you. I will return your call as quickly as possible.
How Soon Can I Get My Grade? 11.28.16
I make it a practice to review logbooks and projects on the day that they arrive.
If you have reached the three week minimum course completion date and after I have notified you that I received your logbook and project, you will be able to submit the online grade form for TEC 912 using your account on the University website.
After I have reviewed your logbook and project, I will be able to immediately submit your grade to the University for processing. I will notify you when I have done that.
"Grades are posted (by Fresno Pacific University) within two business days of notification from instructor. A pdf Final Grade Report is available to print by logging in to the CPD website and clicking on Final Grade Report.
An official transcript may be obtained from the Order Transcripts link on the left side menu after the computerized grade report is received by the student. The grade report will reflect credit in the semester in which the course was registered; the transcript will reflect the actual course beginning and ending dates. The ending date is based on the postmark (or email attachment timestamp) on materials submitted to the instructor (for the final course completion review)."
University privacy policies do not permit instructors to issue "verification of course completion" letters to your school district. You will need to contact the Center for Professional Development office directly if you need that service. Call the office at 1-800-372-5505.
Online Grade Form Submission - 4.23.11
Effective immediately, the University is requiring at all course participants utilize the online Submit Grade Form option on the University website upon completion of the course.
Utilizing this option will expedite grade processing.
See the Course Completion instructions for details.
