Welcome to the Course!
This website (and not Canvas) is the primary location for information on the course. Most of the course, and anything suitable for public viewing will be available here.
That being said, Canvas will be used for announcements and assignments, and some discussions (i.e. anything that is private or semi-private.)
Collaborate CLASSIC will likely be used for our class sessions, so please make sure you are able to access that. (Despite "Classic" being slightly worse for broadcasting, Ultra, so far, has been effectively unusable for groupwork. This class has heavy group work and light broadcasting requirements, so Classic it is, for now. We will discuss in class.)
There are a few readings for our first and second classes below. They are not officially "due" until our SECOND class, but I'd like you to skim them over a bit before our first.
We will also discuss team procedures on our first class.
The actual link to the online class link will be announced (and should presently be in Canvas) , but you can get set up here: https://help.blackboard.com/Collaborate/v12/Participant/Get_Started
See you in class!
