After Orientation

Class, it was good to meet everyone yesterday. I think we’re off to a good start. Please remember that if you have any questions, you may email me.

Remember, too, that I will be building this course as we go. I hope to have all assignments through next week posted before the end of the day tomorrow, Thursday 6/7. Again, if something is missing or weird, let me know.

I have evaluated your profiles and your introductions. For the profile, you received full credit (10 points) if you have a clear photo of yourself. If your face was not clear, you received less than that (probably 8 points). Fix it, email me, and I’ll give you the extra points. This offer expires Friday, 6/8.

For your introductions: if you posted an intro and responded to at least one other person’s by midnight yesterday, you received full credit (10 points). This is how all forums will work. Remember, if you only posted once, you are only getting a maximum of five points. Please review “Some Notes on Forums" if you have not already.

If you are interested in keeping track of your grades, I use Engrade for this. As the linked post states: you must email me for your access code. This is not mandatory, but I make the option available so you can keep track of your progress if you desire.

I’m looking forward to what everyone thinks about “José Chung’s ‘From Outer Space.’”
