Good morning and welcome to the first day of the semester. Please read the first blog post below and watch the roughly 20 minute orientation video to get started in this course.

Here is something I forgot to say in the video: Most of the instructional videos I have created for this course begin with be being a bit silly. Some people think this makes the course more fun, but others think it is stupid and patronizing. If you find that you are a member of the latter group, just fast forward through the beginning of each of these until you get to the real content.

Read the syllabus carefully and pass the syllabus quiz by today or tomorrow so you can get started in earnest. Students who do not pass the syllabus quiz by the end of the second week are subject to administrative drop. But you don't want to wait until then because the end of the second week is also the due date for the module 1 test.
