SMUG Attendance Policies and Grading

All courses at Social Media University, Global are on a pass/fail basis, graded strictly on class participation.

The only way to fail is to not participate.

The participation required will vary for each course. For some, simply reading the material will be sufficient. For others, you’ll need to add a comment in this blog or engage in a discussion in the SMUG Facebook group. In still others, you’ll be asked to complete a social media project and post a link to what you produce.

Every test is a “take-home” test. Unlike traditional classrooms, it’s impossible to cheat. You can peek at your neighbor’s answers; in fact, it’s expected. And Twitter is the best way to get help fast.

You can tweet with your questions about posts using the #SmugU hashtag. That way your fellow SMUGgles can help. You can ask for clarification through replies to @SMUG_U or @LeeAase

If that last paragraph makes absolutely no sense to you, you might want to start with the Twitter curriculum.
