2. Welcome to AP1

  • My name is Brenda Holmes. Welcome to our online course in human anatomy and physiology. I will be facilitating this A&P 1 course this semester. If you have not read the syllabus (which you will find under syllabus) yet and you havequestions, I will let you know here that my campus e-mail isthe best way toreach me ( [email_address] ), but reaching me by phone (the call will roll over to my email) also worksif I am not expected to call back immediately (870-862-8131, ext. 390).
  • Remember to readthe syllabus that contains the details about the course. After reading the syllabus and you have done the first step to finding out what the course is about and what you will have to do to pass it, the next step is to familiarize yourself with the online menus within the Blackboard homepage.
  • To find the lecture assignment you will need to go to Lecture and exams and lab assignments, go to lab assignment' located in anatomy and physiology respectivechapter assignments.The lab exercises are handled separately and placed in your journal. Also incorporated in this course is a review of questions. This is for you to practice to see what you have learned and check if you are ready for the lecture exam. The lecture exam comes in two (2) component. The first, Part A, is True/False and multiple choice. The second, Part B, is essay.
  • Another good resource and practice is the books website. It might beWISEto look there at times. You might find some surprising answers. You will find the link under "External Link": Books website.
  • Iwish you all a productive term and progress - and if it does not feel like progress, I hope you will let me know so that we can figure out how to make it progress!!!
  • Good luck

  • Associate Professor
