Welcome to Week 1

Research and Writing II

Getting Started

As we get started, I would like you to get familiar with the course shell. Many of you will already be familiar with BSC’s online learning environment, but it’s always good to check out the course materials each session.

This week we will be participating in the weekly discussion board by introducing ourselves and getting to know each other. As the weeks progress, we’ll be relying on each other for support and to share ideas about the subject matter. Don’t forget to respond to your classmates—as you know by no—that is still a big part of your grade. It’s also a great way to get that “classroom” feeling in an online course.

Along with the lecture, you will be taking two short quizzes and reviewing the instructions for your midterm and Portfolio project. It’s a good idea to review these early, since both projects will require a lot of time and may test your time management skills!

Also, don’t forget to check the tracking calendar for your weekly readings!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me!
