Welcome to HPE 1000 – 100

Wellness Online


Welcome to Wellness offered online through Illinois Valley Community College Distance Learning.  I am your instructor, Julie Sherbeyn, and am very excited for this opportunity to increase your health awareness through this innovative medium. The goal of this course is to encourage you to consider your personal health behaviors relative to current health information. You will have the opportunity to evaluate your current lifestyle and identify alternative options to improve your overall wellness. This is a fast-paced sixteen-week course with no classroom meetings; therefore, it is imperative you are aware of the course requirements and corresponding timeline. This course is totally asynchronous (on your own) to allow for flexibility in your personal schedule while earning college credit. 


The course consists of utilizing the text, Fundamental Concepts of Fitness and Wellness, 2nd ed., taking chapter quizzes and unit exams and completing assigned labs.  (Please see the Course Timeline for an outline of course content and corresponding deadlines.) You are required to contact the instructor at the beginning of the course to confirm course expectations (please refer to Instructor Contact Information). You must include your full name and course number (HPE 1000-100) in the subject line of all email contact with your instructor. You will not receive any response and your concerns will NOT be addressed if the appropriate format is not followed. Contact the instructor with a valid email account after you:

1.      register for the class

2.      obtain your class materials

Required Materials

The textbook is required for this course and is available in the IVCC bookstore.

·    Internet:  Access to Blackboard (http://blackboard.ivcc.edu) to take all quizzes and tests, and to access your grades.


Blackboard Usage Instructions

The course syllabus and timeline, all quizzes and exams, and grades can be accessed on Blackboard. Quizzes can be accessed on Blackboard from any reliable online location (see Quizzes), but exams must be taken online at the IVCC Assessment Center (see Exams). Quizzes and exams will NOT be accessible after the respective deadline (see Course Timeline).

After comprehensive study of each chapter, you will complete a ten point multiple choice quiz. The quizzes are located in Blackboard under Course Documents and are available beginning Thursday, January 14.

  • There are deadlines for completing each quiz.

    • You will not be awarded a grade if you fail to meet the mandatory timeline (see the Course Timeline).

    • You can work ahead, so plan according to your schedule to complete assessments before deadlines and avoid receiving zeros.

  • There will be absolutely no make-ups allowed on quizzes.

    • Technical issues are not an excuse for failure to complete an assessment; therefore, it is imperative you have a reliable online connection and computer.

    • You will not be able to access quizzes once the deadline has passed.

  • You will have fifteen minutes to complete each quiz.

    • Quizzes will be scored and grades will be posted immediately following successful submission.

    • The time limit will require you to have a firm grasp of the information prior to attempting the quiz.

  • You may attempt the quizzes for Chapters 1 through 5 as many times as you wish prior to their respective deadlines.

    • This will allow an opportunity for you to become familiar with online testing and will enable you to maximize your points for those quizzes.

    • You only have one opportunity to complete the quizzes for Chapters 6 through 15.

No extensions or make-ups will be allowed for quizzes, however, two of your lowest quiz scores will be dropped at the end of the course.

All exams must be taken online at the IVCC Assessment Center. Please go to http://www.ivcc.edu/assessment for hours of operation and all Assessment Center policies - including scheduling your exams.

  • There are four, forty-point tests.

    • Exams consist of multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions.

    • The tests cover the textbook material from the designated chapters; therefore, I suggest taking notes while thoroughly studying the material.

    • Each test is of equal weight in determining your final grade. The tests are moderately difficult college-level exams.

  • There are deadlines for completing each exam, and there are absolutely no make-ups allowed on exams.

    • You will not be awarded a grade if you fail to meet the mandatory timeline (see the Course Timeline).

    • You can work ahead, so plan according to your schedule to complete assessments before deadlines and avoid receiving zeros.

  • You may not use your book for exams, and there is a fifty-minute time limit to complete each exam.

    • No materials (textbook, notes, phone, etc.) will be allowed in the assessment center during testing.

    • Your score will be available after the instructor has had adequate opportunity to review your exam.

Exams must be taken in the IVCC Assessment Center. No extensions or make-ups will be allowed. You must abide by the deadlines listed in the Course Timeline to avoid receiving a zero for the exam.


Lab Assignments   

You have three assigned labs whose instructions are included in Blackboard under Course Documents.  All labs are due in the instructors office no later than Friday, April 30  Labs not turned in by April 30 will not be awarded a grade.

  • BMI and Physical Activity Lab

  • Nutrition Lab

  • Stress Lab


Your grade will be determined according to the total number of points you receive on the required assignments, quizzes, and exams.  There is a maximum of 320 points.

Grading/Potential Points:                                               Total Points/Grade Scale

                        Quizzes (13 @ 10 pts. ea.)            130 pts 320 - 287/(100-90%)  = A

                        Class labs (3 @ 10 pts. ea.)             30 pts   286 - 255/(89-80%) = B

                        Exams (4 @ 40 pts. ea.)                 160 pts     254 - 223/(79-70%) = C

                                                            Total pts    320 pts    222 - 191/(69-60%) = D

                                                                                                190 -    0/(59-0%)    = F


Course Policies

Class Attendance:

This course is totally online; therefore, when you log into the class you are in attendance.  No grades will be awarded for late assignments, so you may want to turn in assignments early to avoid last minute emergencies including possible technology failures.  

Withdrawal Policy:

·  Students will be expected to initiate all withdrawals.

·  If you find you are unable to continue this class, YOU must contact the instructor to complete the necessary paper work.

·  If you stop participating in class, and don't officially withdraw, you may receive an "F" at the end of the semester

  • Last Day for Withdrawal: 4/14/10

·  The instructor reserves the right to withdraw students who are not making progress in the course.  This will include students who are not meeting time requirements for the course.

Academic Concerns:

If you are a student with a documented cognitive, physical or psychiatric disability you may be eligible for academic support services such as extended test time, texts on disc, notetaking services, etc... If you are interested in learning if you can receive these academic support services, please contact either Tina Hardy (tina_hardy@ivcc.edu, or 224-0284) or Judy Mika (224-0350), or stop by the Disability Services Office in B-204.

Academic Dishonesty:

Any student caught cheating will receive a zero for the activity in question and may be subject to the student code of conduct for further disciplinary action.


Ensuring Success

       Success in this course depends, primarily, on a disciplined schedule of studying the text and completing the required labs, quizzes and tests according to the designated timeline. Notice that multiple assessments may be due on one day. I suggest you are active in the class daily to keep up with all required timelines and grading opportunities. Again, if any assigned deadline is missed, no points will be awarded for that grading opportunity.
