 Office & Office Hours 
     

OFFICE LOCATION: Business 136.  Go through the front doors and make an immediate right turn through a door with a small window in it. This door leads to a hallway of office doors. Mine--B 136--is the first door on the right.  (Where is the "Business" building? It is between "HH" and "Science"; it's across from the "College Center."  See "IHCC--Maps.")

  

DO YOU HAVE A BASIC QUESTION? If it may be a common question, please first check

    

(1) the course web site,

(2) the "FAQs" page in the course web site, or

(3) the "FAQs" page for the discussion boards.

    

If you can't find the answer in those places, then definitely email me or call.  If you email, It will help--especially if you are in an online course with me--if you write the word "QUESTION" in caps in the subject line so that I don't accidentally mistake your email for homework.  I'm always glad to answer email questions as quickly as possible.  To phone me, see below.

Email Office Hours--more detail; Home Telephone Calls:

 

Email: If you email me at richard at jewell dot net by 10 am Mon.-Sat., I'll usually reply to you that same day. 

  

I usually don't look at email on Sunday.

 

Note: If you're wondering which email address is best, all three of my email addresses go to the same location. But "richard@jewell.net" is best or fastest for several reasons. See more details below.

 

Phone: Feel free to call 9 am-9pm Mon.-Sat.  If I'm not in, leave a message.

     

SUMMERS: I have no classes.  I'm usually gone, traveling for many weeks at a time, off and on, sometimes camping in places with no Internet or cell phone reception.  I usually check my email, even when travelling, once or twice a week.

 Other Details

                                  

Note: I do not check email or have online or school office hrs. as follows:

                    

(1) not on holidays, Sundays, or days when there are no classes on campus,

(2) not on days when classes are cancelled for teacher meetings,

(3) not on Student Success Day or the two workdays just before the semester starts, and

(4) not on days when I have professional leave for professional conferences or meetings.

   
ARE YOU IN A FULLY ONLINE COURSE with me and wondering whether I got your emailed homework?  If you are sending me homework/make up/extra credit by email, please note that I only check such emails once a week on the weekend.  I always send back a note after I've checked it, so you will know whether I received it.  Please wait - until Monday after the weekend is over - to ask me whether or not I got your emailed homework.  If you have a question to ask me, please write the word "QUESTION" in the subject line of your email so that I know it is not homework, and I will answer usually within 24 hrs.

 Email Address 

    

My email address is

  

richard   at    jewell    dot    net

 

or you can email me at

 

jeweL001 ("L" zero zero one)    at    umn    dot    edu

 

or you can email me at

 

rjewell    at    inverhills    dot    edu

 

Note: All three of the above email addresses go to the same place, so I will see email from all three equally (though the inverhills.edu email address sometimes holds back emails for hours or even, sometimes, days).

     

Directions: Write the above mail addresses in the normal way that email addresses are written, by using "@" instead of "at," by using a period instead of "dot," and by deleting all spaces. 
 

Why have I written my email this way?  I am trying to avoid showing my email address on the Web.  In this way, I can stop automated software "spider" programs.  These programs find email addresses on the Web, then sell them to spammers.  (I receive 600+ spams per month by email before they are filtered.)  

               

Please remember to use two "L's" when you write "Jewell" (but just one "L" when you write "jeweL001").  And please use only one of these email addresses, not all three, as they all go to  the exact, same email box.  

If you are emailing me, please be sure, especially, to write the word "Question" in the subject line so I'll notice it more quickly.

And if you are in an online course and you are emailing homework, please carefully use a certain type of email subject line: look for it in our course Web site in "Homework" under "Due Dates & Delivery Methods."  Usually it consists of something like the course & number (e.g., "Hum 1110"), the week due, the assignment, your last name (e.g., "Hum1110,Wk. 7,Comments on Jones ch. 10-11, Anderson."

Do you want to drop off a paper at my home?  BE SURE TO PRINT THESE DIRECTIONS, BELOW! Print this page, or copy these directions and paste them into an MS Word page that you print. 

Why?
GPS usually isn't enough. There are three freeways, one-way streets, and streets going at sharp angles and/or curves, several of them with almost exactly the same name as my street. So sure, use GPS, but also print these directions, as follows:
                         
Here is h
ow to get to my home: It's not easy.  Essentially, I'm very close to the intersection of I-94, I-35W, and I-394 in Minneapolis, and very close to the old Guthrie and to Loring Park.  Click here for a mapquest.com map: make two print outs--one close up and one wider angle--and please note that the star location on the map is slightly off, as it should be across the street and a slightly to the northwest of the intersection of Dell and Groveland.

Here are directions from four points of the compass.  I strongly, strongly recommend you print them, as the streets and exits are hard to negotiate the first time or two, and typically someone gets a little (or a lot) lost each year.  

  1. From UMN or St. Paul, get on either I-35W South or I-94 West.  If you're on 35W South, merge onto 94 West as soon as the two freeways come together.  Then, on 94 West, take the "Hennepin-Lyndale" exit: immediately go over to the far right lane of the exit, which lane is the Lyndale Avenue North exit.  Turn right at the light onto Lyndale Ave. North; go one block (past the big stone church) to the next light and turn right again.  You'll then be at about 510 Groveland Avenue going east.  (See "5." below for further directions.)
          

  2. From I-394, going east, exit toward Hennepin-Lyndale Avenues.  The second stoplight is Hennepin Avenue.  Turn right at this stoplight onto Hennepin Avenue South, and stay in the right-hand lane.  After you've turned onto Hennepin Avenue, go through two stoplights on Hennepin Avenue.   The second of these two stoplights is Groveland Ave., and normally I would tell you to turn left onto Groveland Ave.--except no left turn is allowed.  So instead, stay in the far right lane of Hennepin Ave. South, go through this second stoplight, and immediately turn right three times.  You'll then cross over Hennepin Avenue onto Groveland Avenue.  At that point you'll be at about 510 Groveland Avenue going east.  (See "5." below for further directions.) 
         

  3. From the north, take I-94 East (as it heads south), and exit onto Hennepin Avenue South.  At the third stoplight (on Hennepin Avenue going south), you would turn left onto Groveland Ave.--except no left turn is allowed.  So instead, get in the right lane of Hennepin Ave. South, go through the third stoplight, and immediately turn right three times.  You'll then cross over Hennepin Avenue onto Groveland Avenue.  At that point, you'll be at about 510 Groveland Avenue.  (See "5." below for further directions.)
         

  4. From the south, take I-35W North.   Exit onto the I-94 West/I-394 West exit.  Stay in the far right lane.   Take the "Hennepin-Lyndale" exit, and stay over in the far right lane of the exit, which lane is the Lyndale Avenue North exit.  Turn right at the light onto Lyndale Avenue North, go one block (past the big stone church) to the next light, and turn right again.  You'll then be at on Groveland Avenue, about 510 Groveland.  (See "5." below for further directions.)
         

  5. From 510 Groveland Avenue, drive to 410 Groveland--a tall condo building with an awning out front.  If you come after 9 p.m., drive to 400 Groveland--another tall condo building with an entrance going up between two brick walls, and go to the Security Office in front (most of the Security Office people are used to receiving student papers for me); ask the security guard to write the date and time when he/she receives the paper.

Overhead view of my condo building, and inset view of the parking lot across the street from the entrance:
