More info on the online media assignments:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject heading of "SOCI#" (with "#" being the number of that week's online activity, as noted above).
The Discussion Board
You should be actively posting weekly to the Discussion Board so as to add to your participation score for the course. Here is how to add a discussion post: The "Discussions" can be found with the links on the left side of the Blackboard page; click that link and then click on the title of the Discussion to which you want to add a comment or reply. You'll see a page of threads with the other student's names; to add to it, click "Create Thread".
