CSUN / Department of Art / Fall 2015 / Professor Joe Bautista
It is always best to make an appointment if you need to meet with me outside of class. Email me if you have any issues with attendance or general questions. IM’s are a great way to ask quick questions as well. Please keep your email attachments less than 10MB.
As you may know, I am one of the Directors for The Center for Visual Communication (VISCOM). If you are interested in participating or curious about what we do at any point during the semester, do not hesitate to ask. We are always looking for people to join the team.
I use ENGRADE for quiz and grading web software. You will receive an invite then access the site here: https://www.engrade.com/user/login.php
