Tuesday, April 28

Today is Tuesday of WEEK 14 of the class. For those of you who are working ahead, Week 15 is also available! If you have not turned in your Week 13 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit.

Storybook stack
. The Storybook stack is still FULL of assignments. I've been working through the assignments with a focus on those people whose Storybook assignment points will allow them to finish up the class - so if you find yourself in that situation, let me know and I'll move your assignment(s) up to the top of the stack. This week I get kind of overwhelmed by all the assignments that are coming in as everyone starts wanting to finish up, so please be patient and I'll be sure to get comments back to everybody by the end of the week - meanwhile, you can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

Storybook Ballot. I've prepared the ballots based on the nominations people submitted. You can see them for each class, with a link to each Storybook website, here: Myth-Folklore, Indian Epics, and World Literature. You can vote in Desire2Learn up until THURSDAY AT 10PM, which will allow me to announce the winners in Friday's announcements. This is not for a grade or anything - it's just a chance to give some extra recognition to your favorite Storybooks. Most important of all: congratulations to ALL OF YOU on creating your websites and writing your stories!!! For most people in the class this is the first time they have published any webpages, and everybody has something to be proud of - wonderful topics, excellent stories, and all of it published online! I really appreciate the effort you all have put into your projects, and also the help you have given other students with their projects. The final result is something very impressive, and I hope you will enjoy taking a last look at some of the popular favorites among this semester's Storybooks!

Course evaluation at eval.ou.edu. You all should have received an email from the College of Arts & Sciences about the course evaluations available at the eval.ou.edu website. I hope you will take a few minutes to complete the evaluation - your feedback is incredibly helpful to me in making improvements to these courses, and it is also a big help to the College in general as they continue to develop the online course program. The online course program exists because students find it valuable to be able to take courses online, and any ideas you have for how the program can be improved will be very useful to the College as they continue (hopefully!) to offer these online courses. So, please take a few minutes to log on to eval.ou.edu and share your feedback and suggestions! THANK YOU!
