Background provided by Instructor: I teach an online class which requires students to access the course regularly to post their reflection over the assigned lectures. Due dates for these short reflections are clearly identified on the syllabus. I also send reminder emails. On the night the assignment was due, a student wrote:
hi, i am at my parent’s house and they do not have internet so I won’t be able to do the assignment that is due by tonight. i thought i could just access the class via my cell phone, but it is impossible to listen to the lectures and view the video portion on my phone. i’m writing to be sure it is okay if i do it tomorrow instead and just get it to you then. thank you for being so understanding.
