I, ___________________ , am a student enrolled in Medieval Latin Online which is a fully online course.

I know that there are no scheduled class meetings and that I am responsible for spending 6-8 hours each week on work for this class.

I understand that I will have assigned Latin reading and writing assignments every week.

I understand that we will use Blackboard for class discussions and quizzes.

I understand the point system used for grading, which requires that work be completed on time each week.
