Course Resources

Required Textbook

Learning Management Systems (Online Classrooms)

We will be using two Learning Management Systems in NEU 300: Desire 2 Learn and Microsoft Class Teams.

You should consistently check your D2L email (or forward your D2L email to your MSU email)

Class Teams Private Chat

Instead of communicating by email, I ask all students to ask me questions via the Chat tool in the Class Teams. Only you and I can see the content in a private chat. Please review your notification settings within the Class Team, so you receive notifications when I reply.


Updates and information will often be posted within the Class Team. Please make sure you review your notification settings, and check your “Activity” tab in the upper left-hand corner of your Teams app.

Academic Responsibility

It is the responsibility of each student to generate original work for all assignments. This means all submitted work must be in your own words. Plagiarizing from any of, but not limited to, the following: the internet, readings, videos, popular press articles, other students, and/or research articles is grounds for receiving a zero for that assignment. IMPORTANT: This means that even though you are working in teams, the work you submit must be in your own words. Please see Course Policies for more information.
