ALH 1001 (Mammano) courses will be through IVCC Blackboard - EXAMS MUST be taken through the RESPONDUS LOCKDOWN BROWSER.   The steps you need to complete:
1. Register for this class through IVCC  NOTE START DATE FOR THIS COURSE IS May 20, 2019
2. Print off the syllabus (at least the student requirement section of the syllabus) and assignment documents - above.  Be familiar with these two documents
3.  Purchase the textbook from the IVCC Bookstore which is bundled with a booklet containing the STUDENT ACCESS CODE for
    PearsonMyLabMedTerm - that will add the interactive section of this course. This is MANDATORY. The access code will be used in Blackboard under the Pearson Med Term Site button. You will also need either a WEB CAM equipped computer or purchase an expensive web cam compatible with  your computer OR take the exams in the assessment center at IVCC.  You must make an appointment at either E-215 or
call 815-224-0542 / 815-224-0552. You will need to show your picture IVCC ID card.

4.  You need to be using your IVCC Student email address in when emailing me.  If you do not know how to use your IVCC Student email address - Directions are found on either the IVCC web Page,  www.ivcc.edu. Go to quick links and down to Student Email.  OR go to Learning Commons, located in D201 or call 815-224-0318 for assistance.  Since this in an online course - please check your email frequently, at least every other day.
 TEXTBOOK: Fremgen, B.F. and Frucht, S, Medical Terminology 7th Edition, Jersey: Prentice Hall, 2018. and new MyMedicalTerminologyLab.  Both of these are mandatory for this class.
5. You will automatically be enrolled (Batch Enrolled)  into the IVCC Blackboard  "ALH 1001-100, 101- Medical Terminology Online - Mammano" course on May 20 (first day class opens).  Once you open the Blackboard Course, you will see the menu buttons on the left side of the screen. You need to begin this class at this time
6.  Please begin the class by FIRST completing the Beginning Class Survey; NEXT download the Respondus Lockdown Browser with web cam monitoring and take the practice exam. The practice exam is over the Student Requirement/Syllabus and Assignment Documents NOT any Medical Terminology Material.
7. Click on Pearson Med Term Site Menu Button in the Blackboard Course on the left side of the screen. This will open up the Pearson web site - click on MyLab and Mastering Course Home to use the access code bundled with the textbook.  You are supposed to have to only enter the access code once and then you will set up user name and password.  BUT I would keep the access code and your user name and password in a safe place, just in case you need it.  There are wonderful tutorial videos - it is smart to take the time to view them.  Many questions are answered and students report less difficulty.
8.  You will need to use the RESPONDUS LOCKDOWN BROWSER as you did while taking the practice exam.   ALL EXAMS are to be taken using this testing browser. Exams are NOT open book. I will be using Respondus with WEB CAM monitoring option.  You will need to either have a web cam equipped computer or buy an inexpensive one compatible with your computer.  If you do not know how to download this - directions are found on the IVCC Student Help Desk - under Blackboard - How to download Respondus at  (http://www.ivcc.edu/studenthelpdesk.aspx?id=16945) This document also has more information on the web cam monitoring through Respondus:
