    Correct Answer
    C. 4 - 6+ hours
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Since my phone has internet access, can I use my phone in place of a computer for writing assignments or reading long documents?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, you can use your phone in place of a computer for writing assignments or reading long documents if your phone has internet access. However, it is essential to note that using a smaller screen and on-screen keyboard can make these tasks more challenging compared to using a computer.
    Here are some advantages and disadvantages to consider when using a phone for academic work:

    Pros:
    Portability: A phone is easier to carry around and use on the go compared to a laptop or desktop computer.
    Accessibility: As long as your phone has internet access and the necessary apps or software, you can use it to complete writing assignments or read long documents.
    Features: Some phones may offer features like speech-to-text, which can be useful for writing assignments.

    Cons:
    Screen size: A phone's smaller screen size can make reading long documents more challenging and increase eye strain.
    On-screen keyboard: Typing on a smaller on-screen keyboard can be slower and less comfortable than using a physical keyboard on a computer.
    Limited functionality: Depending on the software and apps available on your phone, you may have fewer options for formatting and editing your work compared to using a computer.

    In summary, while it is possible to use a phone for writing assignments and reading long documents, it may not be the most efficient or comfortable option. If you have access to a computer, it might be a better choice for completing these tasks. However, a phone can still be a useful tool in a pinch or when you need to work on the go.

      Laptops

    • D.

    B. Tablets
    C. Laptops
    D. Desktop Computers

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What will you do if your computer breaks down, or the internet connection fails?

    • A.

      Do nothing and use technology problems as an excuse to miss assignments

    • B.

      Contact a friend

    • C.

      Contact my teacher

    • D.

      Go to the SJCC Learning and Resource Center in the library or go to a nearby public library

    Correct Answer
    C. Contact my teacher
    Explanation
    In the event of technology issues, such as a computer breakdown or internet connection failure, it is important to address the problem promptly to minimize its impact on your academic responsibilities. One of the first steps you can take is to contact your teacher.
    Here are some reasons why contacting your teacher is a good option:

    Communication: Notifying your teacher about the situation will help them understand the circumstances and potentially provide guidance or extensions for any affected assignments.

    Alternative arrangements: Your teacher may be able to suggest alternative arrangements or resources, such as lending equipment or providing access to an on-campus computer lab, to ensure you can continue with your academic work.

    Recordkeeping: Documenting the incident with your teacher can also serve as a record of the issue, which may be useful if there are any ongoing technical problems or concerns.

    While it is understandable that technology issues can be frustrating, proactively addressing the problem and communicating with your teacher demonstrates your commitment to your education and can help prevent any unnecessary stress or challenges.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Does your lifestyle (family, work, or personal schedule) make it difficult for you to attend courses during the day/night?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Online learning allows students the freedom to attend class from anywhere, at anytime online. That being said, online learning requires a time commitment sometimes greater than that of a traditional face-to-face class. Students need to understand convenience as a way to eliminate a commute; not a way to free-up time in their schedule.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    My technology skills are:

      Very good. I can use e-mail, Web browsers, word-processing software, and can download files and create attachments. I like trying to solve technology problems on my own and don't get frustrated easily.

    • B.

      Average. I can use e-mail, Web browsers and word-processing software. I don't feel comfortable solving technology problems on my own.

    • C.

      Very basic. I have used e-mail, Web browsers and word-processing software, but I get frustrated when things don't work the way they should.

    Correct Answer
    A. Very good. I can use e-mail, Web browsers, word-processing software, and can download files and create attachments. I like trying to solve technology problems on my own and don't get frustrated easily.
    Explanation
    Online learning requires a degree of comfort-ability with technology. Learning technology will take away precious time from learning course requirements. In addition, technological problems are not an acceptable excuse in the online classroom.

    Rate this question:

    I would describe my personality style as:

    • A.

      Lazy, I put things off until the last minute but still get my work done.

      Motivated, but I need help remembering assignments and due dates.

    • D.

      Self-motivated, self-disciplined, and organized.

    Correct Answer
    D. Self-motivated, self-disciplined, and organized.
    Explanation
    If you tend to procrastinate, you might want to reconsider taking an online or hybrid course at SJCC. Online classes often require you to regularly participate in discussions and assignments in the classroom. Also, in online classes you have only yourself to rely on. Online and hybrid learning is best for students who are very self-motivated.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Information presented in online learning can be in following media forms (Select all that apply):

    • A.

      Videos (YouTube, instructional, informational)

    • B.

      Audio clips (mp3, audio books, podcast, voice recordings)

    • C.

      Online texts (links, URL's, e-books)

      Pictures

    • E.

    D. Pictures
    E. Textbooks (hard copy)
    Explanation
    Any and all of these forms of media can be used in an online classroom. It is important to remember that the basic fundamental exchange in online learning is with reading and writing text. While you may enjoy learning with videos, not all teachers will incorporate them into their classroom, and some require you to order a textbook to have at home. If you have a disability and find material difficult to access, please let your instructor and the SJCC Disabilities Support Program & Services know immediately so they can accommodate you.
