Tuesday: October 2

Today is Tuesday of WEEK 7 of the class, and I've re-arranged the Quiz area in Desire2Learn so Week 7 is on top. This week's topic is India or Japan in Myth-Folklore. In Indian Epics, you are finishing up Buck's Ramayana. If you have not turned in your Week 6 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit.

Storybook Stack. As usual at the beginning of the week, there are still LOTS of Storybook assignments in the stack. If you turned something in on Friday or before 4PM on Saturday, you should have comments back from me already. If you turned something in later on Saturday or on Sunday or Monday, it is probably still in the stack. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. PLEASE DO CHECK: if something did go wrong with your email, it is important for you to let me know right away.

Week 7 Internet assignment. For the Week 7 Internet assignment, which is available now, you will be reading stories at the Storybooks. That means you have more reading to do this time (stories and introductions), so you will have just THREE Storybooks that you comment on. You are welcome to do that assignment now; you don't have to wait if a person you are assigned happens not to have published a story yet. To find out more about how the assignment works this week, see the Internet assignment page.

Tech Tip Tuesday: YouTube Video. As a new Tech Tip this week, I've written up instructions for how to embed a YouTube video inside a Google Sites webpage. If you want to add musical background for your readers to listen to while they read, this is an easy way to do that - just find a YouTube video that contains the music you want, embed the video in the page, and your users can listen to the music while reading.

Tuesday Events on Campus. The Vietnamese Student Association is hosting the Lunar Moon Festival tonight in the Union Ballroom from 6PM-8PM - and admission is free! Come celebrate Tết Trung Thu and the fall harvest (time/location/details). Also, for those of you in Myth-Folklore, you might want to check out Tom's wonderful Vietnamese Storybook: Living in the Past: Tales of Ancient Vietnam - it's the first time someone has done a Vietnamese Storybook for this class and the Introduction is very dramatic!
