1. All work is to be emailed by the deadline directly to your instructor (that’s me). You must send your work in from your Saint Rose email address to the instructor’s email address. Any work sent from another email address will not be accepted. In face-to-face classes, students usually upload to a Dropbox folder. I require sending work over email in my online classes because I need to verify it’s really the student who is handing in work.
2. All files must be either Microsoft Word or, if you use another word processor, Rich Text Format (RTF). If you use some other word processing program, find out how to save your files as RTFs before the first assignment is handed in.
3. We also name our files and email subject lines very specifically. This is a good practice to get into for other classes as well as your post-college, professional life. Safe to say, if your instructor got 18 files names “essay 2,” it would drive him crazy! Seriously: you need adhere to the file-naming convention described here. I won’t accept your work if you don’t.
Here’s how you name your files.
Begin your file name with your last name, followed by your first, followed by the assignment’s name.
Make sure you put your Last Name first, so I can alphabetize the assignments. The Name of the Assignment is usually one agreed upon in class or one I email to you.
For example, if a student named Jane Doe sends along her first draft of her persuasive essay, and we agreed in class to call the assignment “RoughDraft1Persuasive,” Jane Doe would name her file like so:
….and attach the file.
 The purpose of this college email-only policy is to ensure that The College of Saint Rose operates in compliance with the provisions of the United States Federal Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) concerning the verification of student identity in distance education. All credit-bearing courses and programs offered through distance education methods must verify that the student who registers for a distance education course or program is the same student who participates in and completes the course or program and receives academic credit. According to the HEOA, one or more of the following methods must be used:
a) An individual secure login and password issued by the College
b) Proctored examinations, and/or
c) Other technologies or practices that are effective in verifying student identification.
