class main areas: Left sidebar & Class Announcements
Important Sidebar link #1: Syllabus
The Syllabus contains all the
course policies, schedule,
and grading criteria: It is the
“rule book” for our class!
Important sidebar link #2: Course Content
When you open the sidebar “Course Content” menu, click on
“Course Resources, where all the class reading materials are and
95% of the assignments to submit for this course.
The link to the final exam will be added under Course Content on
the last few days of class.
Course Resources: Where your homework is!
When you click on “Course Resources” from the “Course
Content” menu in the main classroom sidebar, a new
window or browser tab opens where you access the three
course modules (sort of like textbook chapters) for LIBS
Tip: click on “my
submissions” to access
your graded and
submitted through the
and answer keys – good
study aids for the final
exam! (hint, hint)
All the reading material is here, and embedded in the
modules are helpful practice activities, plus the knowledge
checks (each knowledge check counts 5% of your course
grade and is unrepeatable, so be careful when you click!).
When we get to the Research Log Project Part 1 & 2. you'll
find links for them in the top toolbars of modules 2 and 3
Important sidebar link #3: Conferences
Conferences are where we discuss class topics. When
you click here, a new window or browser tab opens.

participation (see syllabus). I sometimes offer extracredit opportunities in conferences!
However, please note that conference posts after
stated syllabus course schedule deadlines are never
accepted, since we have to keep class discussions
Important sidebar link #4: Webliography
The Webliography is where I share supplemental links with
you relating to class topics. No worries: nothing graded here!
Important sidebar link #4: Portfolio

“Portfolio,” you see all your

Last important sidebar links #5 and #6:
Class Members and Private Messages
When you click on “Class Members,”
you’ll see a the list of everybody in
class with our email addresses and
a link to our WebTycho bios.
When you click on “Private
Messages,’ a new window or
browser window appears where you
can send messages to anybody in
class, including me! However, I
usually respond quicker if you send
an “old-timey” email.
