Do You Need a Textbook?
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.
Can You Access Canvas?
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. More about Canvas can be found at https://www.sjsu.edu/ecampus/teaching-tools/canvas/student_resources/index.html
Do You Have Reliable Tech/Web Access?
GLST1B is a 100% online course. There are weekly deliverables and you will need access to reliable technology and internet. SJSU can help with this, from laptop & device rentals to on-campus free use. Check out https://library.sjsu.edu/scs and http://www.housing.sjsu.edu/computerresourcesandtechsupport/
