Below, you’ll find some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Please understand that Professor Rosenberg cannot assist you regarding technology issues. For those, you must contact the Help Desk at your university.

Zoom

  • My institution uses a different technology. I don't want to use something else.

    All students are required to use the desktop version of Zoom regardless of the technology solutions an institution has adopted.

  • Where do I find the Zoom Meeting URL for my course?

    The Zoom Meeting URL is listed on the homepage of your course site (Blackboard, Canvas, etc.).

    • Course Lectures:  Make sure that you’re using the most recent (updated) link by checking your course homepage.

    • Office Hour Appointments:  When you booked the appointment,  you should have received a confirmation email with the link.  You can also click here for this information.

  • General

  • I need an extension on an assignment.

    You should contact Professor Rosenberg. Generally, extensions are rarely granted and then only under truly extraordinary circumstances. But it never hurts to ask – i.e. an overwhelmed single parent, etc.

  • What is your attendance policy?

    Because courses have different attendance policies, you should refer to your syllabus.

  • I was absent, and I need to know what I missed.

    Upon your return, be sure to get the lecture notes from another student in the class – Professor Rosenberg is not your initial, go-to person; your fellow students are. Keep in mind that while the general policy is that “make-ups” for any missed assignments are not permitted, you are strongly encouraged to book an appointment with Professor Rosenberg to discuss your issue.

  • I'd like to discuss a grade I received on an assignment.

    You should book an appointment with Professor Rosenberg or see him after your next class.

  • I need to see Prof. Rosenberg, but my schedule doesn't work with his, or he's booked during the times I could see him.

    You should see Prof. Rosenberg after your next class or click here to send him a message asking for an appointment outside of the posted schedule.  Be sure to select “I have a personal issue I’d like to discuss with the professor.”

  • I missed a class/assignment because I wasn't able to log into Zoom. Can I make it up?

    As a general rule, assignments are not able to be made up, especially those that are given in-class. However, you are encouraged to discuss your issue with Professor Rosenberg.
