Hey all – As we go deeper into the semester, please make sure you pay close attention to the course schedule and due dates. I do not want to see anyone get behind. Each assignment builds on the next and the writing requirements are rigorous.
It is essential that you keep steady attention to the course, to the modules, to the readings, and to the blog postings from your classmates.
This is one of the most important pages of the site:
Deliverables so far with due dates:
- Blog Post #1: Introduce yourself. 9/3 (Participation grade)
Hints for Keeping Up
Keep up with the flow of the course via various channels. Use an RSS Reader (Feedly, Netvibes) and the class feeds or use this simple workflow:
1) check the section site daily: http://infocom.hyperlib.sjsu.edu The most important announcements from me will be here. read all the posts you have not seen.
2) peruse the latest activity daily: http://infocom.hyperlib.sjsu.edu/community/activity/
3) see if there’s anything new in your groups by clicking Activity –> Groups (Everything).
If you are only interested in new posts, go back to the activity page and use the filter to look for new posts.
