Required Live Classroom Sessions

As a part of the requirements of the course, students are expected to attend live sessions with the instructor (1 session/unit). The dates/times of live sessions will be provided in this section of the newsletter each week. A live session on Unit 1: Les Gens is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9 @ 8pm. If this date/time does NOT work for students they should contact the instructor. The instructor will communicate with students in course announcements should the date/time change.

To access the live classroom, students should click the link in Blackboard titled "Live Classroom French 4." It is suggested that for the first time they arrive approximately 15 minutes early to ensure that they are able to enter the chat room and check the functionality of all tools. Students should log in with both their first and last names, or if attending by teleconference, they should identify themselves to the instructor upon entry.
