Greetings ALL!

Today marks the final day of your course. Each of you have done very well with submitting assignments on time. Of course, there are those times when things go wrong and concessions have to be made. Such a time is upon us right now concerning the Week 5 Discussion Forum. I have no explanation for what happened. I could clearly see it opened on my side, but I know all of you were not having the same problem at the same time. I like the fact that you found another route to submit your posts in the Q&A folder - that was AWESOME! Not to worry, none of you will be penalized - you all will get full credit.

The last two items are the Final Exam and the Article Review! I'm looking forward to seeing those tonight. Keep up the good work along your journey. You have been wonderful students!

Until our paths cross again, take care!

Weeks 1 and 2 are now history and you are beginning Week 3 - you're half-way home! Each of you are doing a good job; however, there are a few things I want to point out to you. Some of you continue to create your own thread in the Forum. When you do that, the other students cannot see your post and will not be able to respond to you. When you reply to my question, that is your initial post. When you reply to two of your course mates, you now have a total of 3 posts. Also, I urge you to review the word count requirement in your Discussion Board Rubric. Many of you are not meeting the word count requirement. Also, please remember to include the citation in your post. 

This is going to be a great week!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Prof Kathy Wells. I will be your instructor for Business Communications. I am thrilled to be working with each of you! Please go into the course and browse around at your earliest convenience.  I think you will get excited about the material that we will be covering!

It’s great to have you in the course! I look forward to learning more about you all as the weeks progress. 

Effective communication is more important than ever in being successful in your career. Communication skills encompasses writing, reading, listening, non-verbal and speaking skills. In a day and age where technology enables us to transmit messages more rapidly and to a greater number of people, we must be skilled in how to properly communicate.

This is a Business Communication course so regular communication is very important. Please contact me for any questions you might have. Email and text are the best methods for reaching me.

I look forward to our interaction over the next five weeks!

Professor Wells
