Introduction

 


Online Media Readings/Video and questions will appear here in Week 1 of the course.


The online media assignments:

Each week, excepting exam weeks (see the course schedule) you will be reponsible for completing and submitting by email a weekly online media 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 reymers@morrisville.edu, with the a subject heading of "ANTH#" (with "#" being the number of that week's online activity, as noted above).

Note: for regular correspondence, do not use the above link to my email, or remove the automatic subject line heading, as activities with this subject line are automatically filtered into my email activities folder (and thus I will not see an email having to do with something else until the following week or later).


Further Note: I will give you 3 chances to get the subject heading correct and to not include attachments in your online media emails to me.

For example, when you send the first online media assignment, you should use a subject heading in the email of "SOCI#", where "#" means the number of the specific assignment of the week. If you write something else (like, for instance, "Online Media Questions 1" or "soc 4 hw"), or if you include your assignment as an attachment, you have not paid attention to the details of the assignment instructions (details which make it crucially easier for me to organize your responses and read what you have written).

You can do this three times without penalty, but a fourth and each further instance of not paying attention to the details will result in a 1-point reduction from your Online Media grade. For the vast majority of you who are doing it right, thank you for paying attention to the details!

- Regards, Prof Reymers
