Welcome to Summer 2021!

Even though the semester doesn't officially start until July 6, 2021, please begin by downloading our Summer 2021 Syllabus HERE

Our course is asynchronous, meaning that we do not have any in real time meetings and there are no zoom sessions to attend. You will not see the course appear in your Canvas page until the official first day of class.


Can You Access Canvas?

Please make sure you can get into Canvas now. If you can't access, please contact eCampus immediately. Canvas will be the foundation of everything we do and you will need to access it many times throughout each week.

Are you new to Canvas? Do this quick tutorial here:

Do You Need to Purchase Materials?

Great question that you will love the answer to, which is no. I deeply understand the struggle of having to pay for costly textbooks on top of everything else, so I have designed all my courses to be free of traditional textbook costs.


Sign Into Canvas on Day 1

Make sure you have your notifications turned on. On the first day of our term, you will see our course. Canvas is where all our class info, lectures, updates & announcements will be posted.


Do You Need a Laptop/Technology for Class?

SJSU has iPads, Laptops, and other tech items for you to check out at
