Weeks 1 and 2 are ready to roll!

And the semester too, I guess…

Welcome to EDUC439/639 Social Networking. You will find on this site all the instructions you need to get started with the semester.

First of all, you will notice on the calendar that our first face-to-face meeting will actually be on September 10, so the two first weeks are entirely online.

Weeks 1 and 2 are ready for you. Please check the weekly sequence to access the instructions for the first two weeks. The deadline to complete the assignments for week 1 and week 2 are two days apart, so make sure you get started quickly on week 2 (there won’t be any assigned reading for week two, but spending some time customizing your WordPress site would be a good idea).

If you have any question, send it to the Google Group, or privately by email to me if it’s personal.

Have a great semester!

This is not a MOOC, but…

This course will primarily serve a University of Delaware clientele, but if you’re interested in following along and interacting with the students, you’re more than welcome to do so. Since most of the work will be done on social media and on blogs, you won’t be left behind. I’m also planning on streaming each class (7 times during the semester, on Monday nights), and probably enabling Google hangouts to make sure we can all interact, whether we’re remote or face-to-face.

See the syllabus for more details on the course.

Let me know if you’re up for the challenge!
