...in an "accelerated" all online section.
--Two drops. But does either Blackboard OR our registrar provide any "push" notification of this to the instructor? Nah. First evidence was when they went missing in the Blackboard grade book, which clued me to the info from our admin site. Good thing I noticed: it would have made the two-person collaborative Dogwalking exercise I had them assigned to this week rather awkward.
-One deer through a husband's car window. Pictures weren't offered...I was tempted to ask. Hubbie is fine. The car and the deer, not so much.
-One 5-day inpatient hospitalization. Documentation was offered in the plea for extensions. With the offer of proof alone, my soft heard melted and I said that was good enough.
That's some high level action at the front end of the session. I feel sorry for some grandparents come the first week of May. At least they are mostly seniors; don't think they'll want to jeopardize their big day.
And, they seem like nice, optimistic people. Or maybe that's just their online persona.
