    Aw welcome and opening Aw welcome and opening Presentation Transcript

      • Welcome to our course!
      • I'm Ana Albi and I hope you will find the course as profitable as you anticipate it to be.  Before you begin, some instructions on what to do each week. 
        • On Monday of each week,
        • at 8:00 am Brasilia time,
        • we will make the week's work available to you. 
      • Every week, you will have the week's goal set out for you. You can click on the title and see what is in store for you that week. 
      • As well as the goals, each week brings lessons covering the material of the week. You should check every activity proposed for the week.
      • You can go back and view anything as often as you wish, and at any point, if you feel ready, you may go to something else. 
      • You can go through and try each exercise from start to finish, or try only the ones you want to reinforce. 
      • You may re-do the exercises as often as you like or skip the ones you are sure about.
      • At any point, if you have any doubts, you may send me an e-mail at the address you will find on our database, or post it to our class help desk forum and let me and your colleagues help.
      • You will be presented with a number of tasks which include reading and writing activities, discussions and exercises.
      • You will not be graded in these activities, and you may re-do or edit them as often as you wish.  It is your participation and improvement that we are interested in. 
      • There are four mandatory writing assignments which will help me assess your progress. They will be available at the end of every two weeks.
      • These assignments will be highlighted with an asterisk to call your attention.
      • We expect you to present the mandatory writing assignments within a week of its posting.
      • They should be turned in a timely fashion, so your instructor can have enough time to provide comments and feedback.
      • Besides the course platform, we will use other internet tools. You will receive information on how to use them as necessary.
      • We will also have a wiki space for our discussions, and to share your texts. You will receive an invitation to join the workspace via email, with the necessary explanations.
      • We will often refer to material in your textbook, Inside Academic Writing .
      • If you weren't able to complete all the mandatory tasks by the end of week 8, you can still do them during the two weeks that follow. 
      • The deadline for completion of the course is December 11th.   This means that you must submit or post all mandatory work by that day.
      • If you have any problems with this deadline, please send me an e-mail explaining the problem and we will try to find a solution, if at all possible.
      • I'll be happy to answer any further questions by e-mail, but for now, click on other areas of our course and discover what we have made available for you. 
      • Enjoy!
