Comm 101 @Ivy Tech

  1. 0
    Has anyone taken Com. 101 from Ivy Tech online? How are the speeches delivered since you aren't in a traditional class setting?
    I am very interested in this because I hate speaking in front of a large group!!!!!!

    Any advice is appreciated!

    I think you need to buy a camcorder from the online bookstore to take COM 101 online. You can go to the online bookstore now and enter the class info and see what is required.

    I took COM 102 (Interpersonal Communication) online, and thought it was a great class. I really learned a lot from it that may even help me in my marriage.

    Thanks for the info! I have a regular camcorder; will that work or does it have to be a special kind?

    When I took COM 101 online at Ivy Tech, we went in for 2 consecutive Saturdays and gave our speeches. It was a great way to do it, much less trouble than recording. They said they did it this way because giving a speech live in front of people is part of the experience of the class. Hope this helps!

    I would look into taking Com. 102 instead of 101, unless you absolutely have to. Com. 102 is also a co-req for the RN program. I took it online and it was sooo easy. We didn't have to go to campus or use a camcorder for speeches at all. My instructor made us watch movies and then write a one page paper over them, take quizzes, and post on the discussion board. I never once had to give a speech in any way, shape, or form. It was really good for me because I have anxiety and hate to speak in front of people.

    I would completely agree. Who did you have? I had Parmley from the South Bend campus.

    I was wondering how the COM 102 worked. I am taking it this summer. I thought I had heard something about movies but I wasn't sure. That class doesn't sound too bad now. It will be better than my other class ENG 112, I have never liked English and I don't seee why we need two college level English classes.

    Yes, there are three papers to write. Each time you had a choice of two different movies. They were good mainstream movies too. Then you wrote a one to two page paper about what happened in the movie utilizing the terms from your textbook. Each week you had a discussion board post and reply concerning some aspect of communications, and short quiz. The quizzes are (of course) open book.

    Do you remember if the class you were in was a hybrid class? This sounds like a better way to do it than having to video the speeches.

    Will com 102 transfer for a BSN? I thought I would have to take com 101 in order to get credit toward my BSN, but if not I will definently take 102!
