Each week (except exam weeks, see the course schedule) you will be reponsible for completing and submitting by email a weekly online activity. This may entail doing a reading or watching a video made available online, or performing some other kind of activity. Instructions will be posted weekly right here on the webpage by Monday and will be due (by email) on Friday at 5pm of each week. You should e-mail your completed assignment to email@example.com, with the subject heading of "SOCI#" (with "#" being the number of that week's online activity, as noted above).
I will give you 3 chances without penalty to get the subject heading correct and to not include attachments in your online media emails to me.
