Week 1: Orientation

Welcome to Medieval Latin On-Line!

In this first week we will spend some time getting to know each other and making sure that you have all the materials you need to proceed with the course. I am really glad to have you in this class, and I think we are going to have a lot of fun together. Is this your first time to take a fully online course? I taught two online courses last semester, and they were great experiences. I think you are really going to like this!

For this first week, we will not be doing any Latin yet. This online course experience is probably new to many of you, and I want to make sure you feel completely comfortable before we really get started. What I've tried to do here is set up some orientation activities that will help familiarize you with the online course environment and give you a detailed introduction to what we will be doing this semester. There is also an Orientation for Online Courses that the College of Arts and Sciences requires for all online course students. The sooner you can complete the required College orientation, the better!

Here are the activities that you will complete this week, either at the Blackboard website, or via email:
