Sample Course Syllabus (http://www.wku.edu/~sally.kuhlenschmidt/psy443/p443syl.htm). This is a sample syllabus to give you an idea of course requirements and structure. The genuine syllabus will be made available on the first day of class.
Sample Internet Policies for Courses (http://www.wku.edu/~sally.kuhlenschmidt/internetpolicy.htm) This is a sample of the policies I follow with regard to portions of the class conducted on-line. The genuine policies will be made available on the Blackboard website below.
"Blackboard" class login. (http://ecourses.wku.edu/) Once the semester begins you will be automatically enrolled and have a personal start page (My Blackboard) from which you can access the Psy 443 site. (Late enrollees may experience a delay). The login page explains your id and password. There are all kinds of goodies here for you. A discussion board and chat room (under Communications). Build your own web page or update your password (Under Student Tools). Find links to journals that have at least some information on line (Web Sites). And get a new copy of the Syllabus (Syllabus). Key course materials are at this site. There is some redundancy with links located on the page you are currently viewing. The Blackboard site is more complete, however, as this is a public page for anyone and the Blackboard site is just for enrolled students.

This is not an endorsement of these programs. I just selected some that could serve as examples (good and bad) of behavior modification programs. You need to evaluate their quality for yourself.
