Due to my overnight sickness; I failed to come to the class meeting. Itís like my body forced me to stay down, because I could lift my head halfway, but my back was discontent. Anyhow, I want to apologize for my actions and hope my work ethic will make up for this incident. For now, I promise that every assignment will be turned in and I will be 10 minutes early for every class period. I will even do extra credit work, even if I donít need the extra points. My attendance will be great and my participation will be excellent. I want you to remember this email, because at the end of the semester, everything I said in this email will show in the end.
1. This is a 100% online class. We do not have any F2F class meetings, ever.
2. Reasons, promises, yadda yadda.
3. Seriously? You are giving me an assignment/edict/order to remember this email because you missed a class that never existed? WT living F?
I thought he might have confused me with/cc'd me on a message to another prof. Nope; he's taking all online classes, and I know each of those profs--they never do F2F meetings, either. And mine is a sophomore-level writing class.
As for me, my brain is discontent now, and I think my body is going to force me to stay down, too. I'm not sure I have enough of a work ethic left to make up for it.
And this is only Week 4. I really need to pack it up and quit this job.
Don't worry about it. I was not at the meeting either. By the way, what
meeting? When and where was it?
Is it possible that this kid missed an orientation meeting of some sort? Our institution requires first-time online students to go to an orientation meeting that would (try to) prepare them for the online experience, although it usually would happen before week 4.
