Welcome to BUL 4602 (undergraduates) / BUL 5605 (graduate students) Legal Fundamentals of Health Care and Public Health. This week you will embark on an exciting web-based learning experience! My name is Rodney Johnson, and I will be guiding you through this course. I am eager to help you make the most of this online learning experience. I recommend that you log into the course at least several times per week -- be sure to watch for new items in the News section and in the Discussion section called Star Chamber and Quagmire. A textbook recommended for this course is: Medical Law & Ethics, Second edition, by Bonnie F. Fremgen, Prentice Hall, © 2006. [ISBN: 0-13-117708-7] and may be purchased online from booksellers such as Amazon.com. Substantial other readings will be provided in the course at no cost.
You will access the instructional content for this course through the eLearning Management System channel located on the "My Info" tab within the my.uwf.edu Portal. If you are a new student, twenty four hours after you have registered for classes you can go to the my.uwf.edu Portal located at http://my.uwf.edu and click on the "New User" link to activate your account. You will be stepped through a New User Wizard. Once your ArgoNet account is established, both new and returning students can logon to the my.uwf.edu Portal using their ArgoNet UserID and 7-character password. Then click on the "My Info" tab to access the eLearning channel where your BUL4602 or BUL5605 link is located. Note: Both undergraduate and graduate students will enter the course using one of these two course numbers.
In the eLearning channel you will see all of your courses with a web-based component that are active in the UWF course offering system. Click on the "Legal Fundamentals of Health Care and Public Health" course link to access the course Homepage where you will find any current course “News”. You access the Instructional “Content” by selecting the blue "Content" link. Here you can view the Important Course Information (Course Orientation, Course Syllabus, etc.).
Important Note: All email generated in eLearning courses will be sent to your UWF ArgoMail email account. Make sure it is established and that you check it regularly.
An eLearning Student Orientation guide is available from a link at the bottom of the eLearning channel in the my.uwf.edu Portal. If you are new to web-based courses and eLearning, I recommend printing and reviewing this guide. You will also want to review the eLearning Demo at: http://onlinecampus.uwf.edu/demos/D2Ldemo.htm. This animation demonstrates how you access the different components of the eLearning system.
Ready to get started? Proceed to the course site within eLearning and participate in the Welcome discussion forum. If you have any questions or require additional information, contact me first through the Discussion forums so I can post an answer everyone can read. Remember, this course is totally online. If you have any problems accessing the site after today, contact the ITS help desk at (850) 474-2075 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org first to determine if the problem is on their end or yours.
