Hello and Welcome to our Course.

The official start to the term is Jan. 7th.  We will be updating the blog with this term's Posts on this date.  You are free to work ahead on the assignments and save them on your computer.

One of the benefits of the blog format for online courses is the discourse between students.  We post only one or two assignments at a time in order to foster communication between the course participants.

If you do work ahead you will need to post your reflection on the blog when the corresponding assignment is posted.

If you have a question please email us and put "Question" or "REPLY NEEDED" in the subject line so we can get back to you in a timely fashion.  We frequently scan our inbox for questions but wait to reply to assignments for when we have a good chunk of time.  If there is no notation in the subject line of the email, we assume it is just an assignment.

You can expect us to reply to your reflection in about a week from when you submit it-- though at times it may be longer.  Again, if you have any concerns or questions email us and note in the subject line that a reply is needed or that you need "Help."

A couple of notes:

We suggest you save your work in a word processing document before posting to the blog.  There have been times where something happens and a post may disappear.  (Having this saved, makes it easier to repost.)

Some students have experienced problems posting using Firefox.  There are work-arounds, but the easiest is just to use a different browser.

Winter term starts 1/7

All work due 3/17

Grades available online 3/27

We look forward to learning and working with you this term.  :D
