Choose your own Adventure
Welcome to this semester and your class. This course may be different than others that you have taken before. Let me lay out a few key points for you.
This course is about you, it may be confusing but we are not trying to confuse you on purpose, explore the content and always feel free to ask questions to your classmates, the instructor (Ken) or past students.
- Go read the Page One for this course. Make sure you “sign it” via Twitter. Don’t have Twitter yet? Create a new account.
- Curious about how you will be evaluated in this course? Go read about that on evaluation page.
- Interested in what happened in previous semesters of this course? Go read Ken’s blog post about last semester or feel free to watch video comments from past students in Spanish or English.
- Each week, Ken will post a weekly “What’s happening this week” video and will post a quick blog entry with that video here on the course site. Ken will also (eventually) post a blog entry for each mastery topic. You can find links to content from Ken on the left side bars of this blog which show recent entries. Note that clicking on the title (“Mastery”,”Quizzes”, etc.) will show all of those posts and they may flow over various pages.
- You need to setup your own blog for the course. I suggest setting up a new blog and recommend WordPress or Known. You can use any other platform (or your existing blog) but it needs to be able to provide an RSS feed specific to this course. If in doubt, ask. Register your blog so Ken knows where it is and your content from your blog will show up here on the course site.
- Would like like to contact Ken to chat, converse or meet outside class (actually part of your evaluation), details are on the Contact page linked at the top
Weekly Intro Video
For the tldr; crowd, I explain most of the written work here in the weekly video for the course.
Remember, please ask any comments about the week’s work or anything else in the comment fields at the bottom of any post. That includes my blog posts as well as those of your colleagues in the class.
