The course will be delivered via the Moodle courseware system. Participants will need an internet connection and computer with a current operating system and web browser. Further details will be provided prior to the course start. The course will proceed weekly for 4 weeks with an optional two weeks if students need more time to complete assignments.
The live, synchronous lectures will require attendee participation via internet audio. Attendees will need a wired, high-speed internet connection, and a headset or speakers. It is recommended that attendees use headsets connected to their computers (VOIP) during an Adobe Connect session. All attendees are muted and should use the built in chat function to communicate with presenters. The use of computer speakers with a mic is not recommended, as it may cause echo. The recommended browser is Mozilla Foxfire although other browsers should work adequately for attending.
Alternately the webinar recordings can be viewed after the live lecture using a standard web browser, internet connection, and audio out capability to speakers or head phones.
