Instructor button. Email is your best bet as I'm rarely in the office, but
almost always connected!
Even though we never meet face-to-face officially, this is a Ďrealí course, so
donít think that you can just click your way through for credit. You
will work independently and within an assigned small Workgroup
team. You canít succeed in this course without doing both.
(Note that you will only be able to see the workgroup to which you are
assigned. This is a 'private' area for you and your teammates. Other
classmates will be working in their respective team areas, but they cannot
see what your team does in your workgroup discussion.)
So, it is very important that you
complete items by the due dates listed in the syllabus.
If you haven't already done so, carefully review the current course syllabus.
Click on the Syllabus button to find it - and other items to help you
succeed in this course.
(Although you donít have to purchase any texts or materials for this course,
you do need a reliable internet connection and some freeware
plug-ins/players, like Acrobat Reader. If you havenít run the
UTTC browser checker
THIS SEMESTER, do that as soon as possible!)
Please mark your personal calendars
accordingly so that you keep up! This course is
instructor-paced, meaning that the lessons will appear in the course on the
date specified in the 'open on' column.
You have the entire week to complete tasks by the date specified in the
'due by' column, so plan and use your time
wisely. All work must be
completed to pass, but points will be deducted for missing any deadline.
With those basics, letís get back to the lesson
