Instructor Comments :
Welcome to the brave new world of online history! Hope you like reading and writing, because they're both unavoidable. Survivors of this class report that it was more work than they expected, but also more enjoyable and rewarding. We'll see what you think about that (and about lots of other things).
This class takes place entirely online and never meets in the "real" world. It begins Monday, September 8th, but the Blackboard site will become available a couple of weeks before that, so check in ahead of time for the course syllabus, announcements, and the required book list. We will be using a new set of textbooks this fall, not the ones from previous semesters.
PLEASE NOTE that, because the demand for classes is so great, if you are registered for the class, but fail to check in to the course Blackboard site during the first week of class -- that is, by September 12th -- I will have to drop you and offer the space to someone from the wait list!
We will be making extensive use of discussion boards, online quizzing, and other interwebby stuff. If you're uncertain about whether you have the computer skills for an online course, take the assessment quiz at this site: http://distance.uh.edu/online_learning.html
If you need to get in touch with me, the email address I'll be checking most often is email@example.com .
