Do not follow the instructions…repeatedly. Some students like to just submit incomplete work, nameless work, late work, assignments out of order. It is almost approaching arrogance at times. Many simply cannot read. Some enjoy resubmitting homework with the same incorrect answer. One person submitted no assignments for a month after gaining access to the online modules (typical procrastinator), then sent his first email “Well, I’m ready to take the End of Course test for Course 105.” He never could understand from me that Course 101 comes first, then Course 102, etc.. If you do not completely understand an early course, then you will not understand a later course – it kind of goes in order for a reason. There is a Matrix below that basically indicates due dates in a certain order. It becomes difficult to help online students who have legitimate technical questions because I need to send “Johnny Clueless” another email explaining that the assignments are located when you click the button named…Assignments.
