Attention Online Students:

There are two mandatory on campus meetings for the History 120 Online classes:

1. Mandatory Orientation:  August 18, 2014 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 2734

2. Final Exam: December 8, 2014 from 4:30 to 5:50 p.m. in Room 2734

If you are a registered student, you must come to the Orientation, or you could be dropped from the class if you do not contact me prior to 4:30 p.m. with a good reason why you cannot come and you must be self-sufficient in being able to log on to Blackboard and completing the first assignments. Attending the Orientation is the first step to your successful completion of this course.

If you are trying to crash the class, the ONLY way you can crash is to come to the Orientation.  I will not know how many openings I have until then.  Further instructions will be given at the Orientation.

You can log in to Blackboard before the Orientation to browse around and check out the class and you can bring your questions to the Orientation.

See you at the Orientation.
