About Virtual Office Hours
Like you, I have a very busy schedule throughout the week.
I go online each morning around 8 AM (LA time) and remain online until about 11 PM (LA time). While I am online, this does not mean that I am instantly available. Please be patient. I will do my best to be available as soon as possible.
USING THE APPOINTMENT REQUEST FORM
Use the Appointment Request Form (to the right) as a quick, convenient way to arrange a virtual meeting at a mutually agreeable time. This will enable us to quickly arrange and understand the purpose of the meeting. Complete the below listed steps to request an appointment.
IMPORTANCE OF SKYPE AS A COMMUNICATION TOOL
Throughout the course, Skype will be our primary communication method. Skype's versatility (i.e., audio/video calling, instant messaging, voicemail, and video messaging) makes it easy for us to communicate 24/7. My Skype username is "ricklillie."
Skype works with both PC and Apple computers. Additionally, Skype has apps that work with most cell phones.
Follow instructions on the Class Assignments Schedule for downloading Skype to your computer. Use the "Add Contacts" option to add my name to your Skype contacts list.
HALLMARK OF MY TEACHING STYLE
A hallmark of my teaching style is close, personal contact with my students. While we all have time constraints, I believe you will find my approach to virtual office hours to be a warm, friendly way to connect with each other throughout the course.
If you have questions about the Virtual Office Hours, please contact me.
