FALL SEMESTER READY: ready to begin if you want!

School does not start officially until Monday, August 23, but if you would like to start this online class early, it is ready to go! All the first week assignments are available now if you want to get a head start. Even though there are no class meetings for this online course, you do have assignments that are DUE already on Tuesday next week, August 24 - so if you can complete those assignments before the deadline, that will give you one less thing to worry about next week.

All the information you need about the Week 1 Orientation assignments can be found at the course website; just click on Week 1 Orientation to get started:
World Literature Course Website
Myth-Folklore Course Website
Indian Epics Course Website

In a separate email, I will be sending everyone enrolled in the class, the Ning invitation code you need to join the class Ning. When you click on this link, you will be prompted to enter an email address; use whatever email address you prefer - it does not have to be your OU email address. There will be a question to prove you are not a computerbot (it's usually a simple math question in words), and then there are some profile questions to answer - you do need to enter your name, but you can leave the other questions blank and answer them later if you want; it's up to you.

Thanks, everybody - and if you have any questions at all about the course, please ask! For those of you who start early, you may notice all kinds of things I may need to fix up or get into place for the new semester; just let me know and I'll get things fixed pronto - and thanks in advance for your help with all that!
