ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR ONLINE PROGRAM  STUDENTS.

ZOOM PLATFORM AND THE INSTITUTIONAL OPERATING PLATFORM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ONLINE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS.

ACCESS THE COURSES OF OUR ONLINE PROGRAMS AND CONNECT TO YOUR PROFESSORS.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS:

Once the Computer Systems Specialist has assigned your username and password to access our platforms, then follow the instructions:
1. Download the ZOOM application on your computer and / or tablet or cell phone. It is recommended to do it, preferably, on the computer, although it is convenient to have the platform available in two of the devices mentioned to face any type of contingency. When downloading the application, it will request a registration with an email and password. These should be remembered (manually or electronically) in case the platform is rebooted or has a problem.
2. The invitation for the class will be sent by the professor of the course via email or WhatsApp. WhatsApp will be preferably used; so, it is recommended to use the WhatsApp Web service on the computer. To do this, the student must have his/her WhatsApp active on his/her cell phone when requesting the WhatsApp Web service. The student is asked to search the WhatsApp menu on the cell phone for the WhatsApp Web link and scan the QR code that will appear on the WhatsApp Web page on the computer. This will allow the student to open the WhatsApp service on the computer. Whenever the WhatsApp Web service is going to be used, it will be necessary to have the corresponding application active on the cell phone.
3. For the class, a WhatsApp group will be created, and for that group, the invitation for the class will be sent; this will allow professors and students to be in contact in order to solve any communication problem that may exist unusually through the Platform; however, if a student does not wish to be added to this group, the teacher will send the invitation by mail, upon explicit request from the student, which must be made in writing. This will be the way for the professor to inform the student the tasks and notices related to the subject.
4. Upon receiving the invitation, the student must access the session opened by the professor through the link provided, and then, the professor will give the student access, once the student is in the Waiting Room. All students must communicate the professor their Identifiers (ID) by means of which they appear identified in the ZOOM Platform; that's in order to avoid hackers' actions. If a student changes his/her Identifier, it must immediately be notified to the professor.
5. Students' and professors' behaviors, their messages and publications in the group must abide by the institution's standards of behavior, based on mutual respect and non-discrimination for any reason.
6. Class visits will be made to all courses and programs without prior notice to professor, and through a weekly-random sample process, that will allow monitoring the quality of the online teaching-learning process.

SYNCHRONOUS CLASS HOURS PROFESSOR-STUDENTS ACCORDING TO COURSES OF 5.5 AND 8.25 CREDITS.

All courses of 5.5 credits of the master's and doctoral programs will have a total of 4 hours of synchronous professor-student classes for each thematic unit of the course. Each course will have a total of 20 hours of classes seen synchronously professor-student. In the case of subjects of 8.25 credits of both types of programs, they will have a total of 4 hours of synchronous professor-student classes for each thematic unit. Each subject will have a total of 20 hours of classes seen synchronously professor-students.
The thematic units that are not taught synchronously professor-students will be assigned as independent study to students. These contents will be clearly determined and informed by the professor to the students on the 1st day of class, as well as the corresponding detailed Bibliography will be delivered electronically so that they can study the new content. The Bibliography will be accompanied by a group of activities (questions, written exercises of different types, etc.), which will allow students to acquire and deepen the new content. The professor will assign a reasonable time for the students to solve the designated activities as they correspond in their order of topics where they appear, as well as for the delivery of these activities to the professor.
All the activities and the corresponding bibliography will be uploaded on the 1st day of class to the CHAT of the platform as well as sent via email to each of the students, which will allow full access from different channels. The answers to the activities will be uploaded and sent to the professor through the CHAT of the platform and directly to his/her email. Professors will upload Bibliography and designated activities to Google Drive, and later assign the corresponding accesses to that documentation for study, deepening and discussion with the convenience that this offers.

PROCEDURE FOR THE ASSIGNMENT OF SYSTEMATIC ASSESSMENT ACTIVITIES TO STUDENTS AND THE NOTIFICATION OF ACADEMIC RESULTS OBTAINED.

The professor will notify the students in detail of the contents/thematic units that will be designated with systematic evaluation activities. These systematic evaluation activities can be derived both from contents that are developed synchronously professor-students, as well as from those that are assigned for the students' independent study.
The professor can assign systematic evaluation activities for each thematic unit, and the results obtained from these aforementioned activities (from contents developed synchronously as well as from contents assigned to independent study), will be averaged and each student will be given a final academic result in relation to the systematic activities. In the event that the student obtains a final result for systematic activities equal to or greater than 4.7 points, they will be considered except for taking the final exam.
The professor is responsible for notifying the students' academic results in a time no longer than 3 working days after the end of the course, as well as offering the corresponding clear and precise feedback on those problems detected and that influenced in reducing the possible maximum grade to be obtained by students.
The grades will be in the range of 2 to 5 points, where 2 points is a non-passing grade, 3 points is a minimum passing grade of Good, 4 points is a passing grade of Very Good, and 5 points is a maximum passing grade of Excellent. This rating system applies to any type of evaluation.

Students can enroll up to 5 courses in the semester, which will be requested to the Dean of the School of Social Sciences according to the availability of timetables for each course to be taught during the week.

THE FINAL EXAM: PROCEDURE FOR ITS APPLICATION, MARKING AND NOTIFICATION OF RESULTS.

The final exam will be structured in two parts: a written final exam that can contain up to 5 questions without subsections and an oral final exam with no more than 3 questions without subsections. The final written exam will be 1 hour synchronously professor-student.
The final grade for systematic activities as well as the grades obtained in the final written exam and the final oral exam will be averaged and a total final grade for the subject will be awarded. This total final grade will be notified to both the student and the "Admissions and Finance Office" in a term not exceeding 3 business days.
Those students who have not obtained a total final passing grade for the subject may request up to 2 extraordinary exams that will be held within 3 days one after the other, and will begin on the fifth (5th) day after the final exam (oral and written) was done. The extraordinary exams will be oral and written with the same specified characteristics of the final oral and written exam.

THE COMPLAINT PROCESS IN CASE OF DISCONFORMANCE WITH THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE RATINGS.

In the event that a student obtains a non-passing total final grade in the second (2nd) extraordinary exam, he/she can make a written request to the Dean of the Faculty so that the Institutional Master's or Doctoral Committee, as appropriate, meets and makes a comprehensive evaluation of the student and propose possible actions to follow depending on whether he/she can meet the objectives of that couse and pass it in the next school term, and thus, continue in the program, or if the decision of the Committee is finally that the student withdraws from the program.  
This Institutional Master's or Doctoral Committee will listen to the student's criteria regarding his/her academic situation, which will be taken into account to issue the final criteria. The result of this corresponding Committee will be issued in a period of time not exceeding 3 working days and is appealable to the Rector of the University. The Provost will create a Commission to revaluate the issued result and will get to a conclusion within a period of no more than 3 working days. This decision is institutionally final and the student may request an appeal before the Florida Department of Education.
In the event of a claim by the student to any improperly followed procedure regarding the teaching-learning process carried out by the professors or the academic results obtained, the student shall make a request in writing to the Dean of the Faculty, and the latter, will create a corresponding Institutional Commission to analyze and respond to the claim request. The Commission will analyze the facts in detail and will issue a response within a period of no more than 3 working days. In case of dissatisfaction on the part of the student, the latter can make a request for an appeal in writing to the Provost of the institution. The Provost will create a new Commission to evaluate the facts and will issue a result within a period of no more than 3 working days. This decision is institutionally final and the student may request an appeal before the Florida Department of Education.
