FIRST: Course Information
Be sure you are on board with the focus and expectations of this course as outlined in the Course Info section and video. Otherwise, save yourself before it’s too late!
How This Course Works
This course is intended to be simple in structure so you can focus on the complex topics. Essentially there are three aspects of the course for you to work through and with—as easy as 1-2-3!—the Home Page, the Schedule and the Collections
1. The Home Page
I will post impromptu announcements, assignments, questions, directions and tips on the course home page. I cannot guarantee I will also send notices via email!
2. The Schedule
The Schedule page provides a weekly outline for the course and required readings that are not part of Collection activities. For convenience, I’ve listed individual collection requirements for the first Collection on the schedule page. For subsequent Collections, required and optional assignments will only appear on the relevant Collections page.
You will post all assignments that result in some kind of product to your site.
Periodically, you’ll gather together links to the assignments you’ve completed into Collections which you will share. Your Collections comprise most of your grade in this course!
A Note on “Your Choice” Assignments
In addition to the required assignments on the schedule, each Collection includes assignments you choose from a pool of options, AKA “Your Choice” assignments.
Don’t assume that because you’ve worked through the required assignments you are done! You will fail the course if you don’t also complete the “Your Choice” assignments!
Look at the requirements for each collection when it starts so you can begin choosing and completing optional assignments.
