As you all are well aware, we have some technology issues to resolve. The chat room in Moodle works for me but students cannot see the sessions. So, we will use the chat sometimes for when we "meet" but we will also be using this blog for other purposes. Here I can post information and you can respond to minor assignments. I may post tips for assignments or respond to questions that can benefit the entire class.
One rule that we all must follow: do not post personal contact information in responses. Please do not post real names (at least not last names) or phone numbers here. You will be working in groups, from time to time, but remember that anything you post here can be seen by the public. It is unlikely that people outside of this class would follow this blog but search engines do send programs to collect email addresses and phone numbers. It is also possible that your responses could be searchable on Google since they do own this blogging software.
You will have to create a gmail account (if you do not already have one). It is free and simple to do so. Please do so as quickly as possible. Please contact me if you have any problems or questions.
