Welcome notes

Created Friday 27 January 2023

The first front page - in Canvas - is the primary source of material for this course; everything you need for the course will be available here. Many links go through http://jrm4.com (including a mirror of this page for backup and emergency purposes); feel free to browse that as well. Links to all tools and readings will be available from the front page.

The official method for contacting me is in person during class, or via email, at jmarks@fsu.edu . Please never use Canvas Conversations with me (the messaging tool in Canvas).

Finally, this class does have a group work component, involving discussions as well as a group project. I have found Discord to be an excellent tool for this, and I do have a (so-called) optional server for this purpose. I will provide more information on the server later — but to be clear Discord will be 100% optional.

No textbooks are required, and nothing is due for the first class. Feel free to browse the assignments and readings on the side, but unless they are LINKED DIRECTLY FROM THIS PAGE, they are from the previous semester and may change.
