Module 0 -- September 23 through 29, 2013

Topic: Orientation and Technology Check

Starting on Monday, September 23, 2013, the course website including reading assignments, the first asynchronous lecture, discussion board, and library will be available. On Thursday, September 26, 2013, shortly before 6:30 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time, the live virtual classroom will be active. This first live session is for all participants to work with live technical support people to test equipment and to ensure smooth operation for the first actual live seminar the next week -- literally, a microphone check. This is also an opportunity to meet online the instructor, support staff and other students.

Participants should first consult the Technical Requirements page, particularly the "Test My Computer" button.

Here are two video tutorials on how to participate in this course. The first is an overview by our staff of the various resources including this website, the discussion boards, the digital libray, and the virtual classroom for live seminars on Thursdays. The second video is by Adobe, the manufacturer of the software interface we use.
