BBB is built into SAKAI. It magically appears when you join a meeting under the MEETINGS tab in the left column.
Class schedule: Monday and Wednesday 5:00PM-6:20PM. Lectures are in-person. However, for online meetings we will use the meetings tab in SAKAI.
For online meeetings pliease click on the meetings tab in
the left column of your SAKAI course home page. A list of upcoming
meetings will be posted. Please join tby clicking on the appropriate
meeting. This will seamlessly open BBB. For individual or small
group meetings please join with your audio on or be ready to turn it on
when needed. For individual or small meetings it is your choice whether
to connect with video or without.
If it is necessary to have online lectures, for example if we have a blizzard in early November, please join without video and
without microphone. If
you have questions please post it in chat. Public
chat discussion is allowed. Please keep to the course material. It is
difficult for me to monitor the chat, but when I take pauses I will see
if there is anything I need to insert into the discussion.
We can experiment on turning audio on for questions and discussion, but
hopefully we will not have the opportunity to experiment. Please join the meeting
at the appropriate time.
Attendance may be taken at random times during random classes throughout the semester. I
do not require attendance. I have found that there is a strong positive
correlation between attendence and performance in the class. I do not record the lectures.
