WELCOME to Summer 2014

Oceanography
at
Evergreen Valley College


Introduction

This is a 3 unit course for non-majors.  It is a general education physical science class with NO lab.  We learn about how the ocean was formed, the waves, the tides, the animals that live in the ocean and much much more. 

This course requires students to watch videos on my website.  You will also need to purchase a set of DVDs and a book.  

The class has no on campus meetings except for one exam.  It is an on-line course.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE ENROLLED IN THE CLASS - send me an email by Monday June 16, 2014

Orientation:  

There is an on-campus orientation to the class on Monday June 16 at 4:30PM in Sequoia S-113.  If you prefer, you can email me for directions on how to have an on-line orientation.  My email address is in the course schedule and the Student Information handout below.

Lectures


Lectures have 2 parts:
    1)  DVD series called The Endless Voyage that you must purchase
    2)  My lectures:  recorded videos of my voice and PowerPoint slides.  Just like a regular on-campus class except you don't see my face!  The files are large and it can take awhile to stream the video.  Be     patient.


The PowerPoint handouts are also provided for you. 

You will also need to buy the textbook and read the assigned pages.
