Online Portal

If you’re enrolled in an online section of my Religious Studies classes, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • We will not have a face to face orientation.  I will post an online version of the orientation with the week one materials.
  • All exams occur online from the class website (via Canvas).
  • Discussion posts and short writing assignments are active learning components to the class.
  • One research paper is required, including the option for field research or a monastery visit in Santa Barbara during the fall and spring semesters.
  • The best way to communicate with me is through the “Conversations (Inbox)” tool in Canvas or by way of email at cforney@palomar.edu.
