I’ve posted the schedule for our course on our lectures page. Here are a few things to note as you’re looking this over/making plans.
Exam dates. Exams 1 and 3 are all set for the dates scheduled. Exam 2 got missed on the official course schedule – and I am waiting to hear back from administration on whether it is okay to schedule it on Wednesday, November 11, given that you have a practical that afternoon. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back.
Exam times. Each exam will be available for 24 hours, so you can take it any time on the scheduled date. You’ll have 2 hours to complete the exam once you open it.
What else to put on your schedule. In planning out our class time, I wanted to get a good balance between scheduled, live stuff and watch-anytime stuff. Watch-anytime stuff is great because it gives you more flexibility and control over your time. Live sessions are great because they let us talk back and forth in real time and get a lot accomplished. PLUS I get to see your lovely faces.
So here’s how we’ll do things:
- Lectures: pre-recorded videos, watch anytime
- Quizzes: live Zoom sessions (need to show up to take part in the Kahoot)
- Exam reviews: optional live Zoom sessions (I’ll record them in case you’d rather watch at your convenience)
- Office hours: optional live Zoom sessions (I’ll record these too)
A final note about the schedule. My goal for this course is to get all lecture videos and slides posted at least a week ahead of time. I’d prefer to get everything posted this weekend…but that’s not gonna happen, as I have to use the U’s online video editing software, which as you might imagine, is buggy and very slow. But you can count on at least a one-week lead time for materials so you can work around whatever else you have going on that week.
Let me know if you have any questions! I’ll be filling in the other pages on our website (About, Crosswords, Kahoots, Summary Videos) over the next few days. You might want to sign up to get email notifications (Home page, right sidebar) so you don’t have to keep checking back all the time.
I’m SUPER excited to “see” you all again! I’m so happy I get to teach you guys over the next few months. Have a great long weekend – see you soon!
