Grades, Incomplete

Grades of incomplete will only be at the discretion of the instructor in light of a valid, documented reason. The instructor reserves the right to raise the grade if incomplete work is completed within one year, or by an earlier date specified by the instructor.

Late Assignment Policy

You are required to submit all assignments to me on their due dates, submitted as per the assignment guidelines.

Forum discussion posts (Informed and Active Participation) and blog posts (Online Writing Activities) will not be accepted late.

Late submissions of other assignments (the Questionnaire, Literacy Practices, McLuhan and Electronic Edition Proposals, McLuhan Project, Textual Interventions, Electronic Edition, and Final Synthesis will be penalized 10 points per day, beginning from the time the assignment was due. (For example, if an assignment is due at 10:00 PM and you submit it at 10:15 PM, it is considered late and will be penalized 10 points. If an assignment is turned in at 10:15 PM the day after it was due – 24.25 hours from its original deadline – it will be penalized 20 points.)

No work will be accepted after 10:00 PM, Dec. 16 without prior arrangement.
