In order to receive attendance credit and exam credit in Finance 4335, I require that webcams be turned on at all times. Students who have webcams on are more likely to be engaged and actively participate, which in turn improves the quality of the learning experience for everyone. For exams, this enables me to credibly proctor students during exams (as well as respond on a timely basis to any questions students may have).
Virtually all smartphones, tablets, and laptops sold over the last 10+ years have mic and webcam features built-in. If you ever encounter any problems with these features on your device, simply rebooting your device fixes the problem in the vast majority of cases.
If you have any questions or concerns about attendance policy, exam policy, or any other aspect of Finance 4335, let me know right away. I am looking forward to “seeing” everyone in class!
