I am looking forward to a terrific Year with you. I want to welcome everyone, and I would encourage you to post a short informal hello message in the “Introductions” discussion forum to let me know you received my welcome message, and to briefly introduce yourself to your fellow classmates. Although the official start date for the course is not until 3rd January 2022, all students (who have officially registered) now have access to the our online system, so feel free to start exploring our online learning environment.

All details of the course can be found within the online course site, syllabus and modules. I also wanted to take a moment to post a couple of points as we get started.

This course will have regular weekly assignments due, weekly online discussions forums, as well as readings and course materials. it’s important that you keep on top of the weekly reading and assignments! Each of you must manage your own time each week to know when assignments, and any other weekly course obligations, are due. This will involve regularly logging into our website to check discussion forums and communications, and virtually interacting with classmates, team members, instructors, and course materials.

At this point, I suggest the following actions: · Log into Advanced College Information Management System-ACIMS and begin to familiarize yourself with the learning management system and the courses · Make sure you’ve confirmed your email address in the  system so you can receive messages and announcements I’ll be sending ·

Check out your course  Calendar for assignment due dates so you can plan your semester accordingly. · Submit your first assignment· Read through the Syllabus so you know the rhythm of course, and what is expected. As you get started, I’m happy to answer any questions that may arise, or point you to our tech support for more technical questions.

My Regards

Mr Jonathan C Kasoka,

Principal Tutor
