Thursday, March 14

Today is Thursday of WEEK 9 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 8 Storybook assignment yet, you may turn that in BEFORE NOON today for partial credit. For those of you in Myth-Folklore, Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday. 

NING MAINTENANCE. There will be maintenance on the Ning Thursday evening, which I know is a busy time of the week with a lot of people posting their Thursday assignments. The maintenance window will only last appx. 5-30 minutes according to Ning, so I hope that will not be a big problem for anyone - but if you are not able to post on Thursday or during the grace period Friday morning, then make sure you get your blog post(s) done by 5PM on Friday; you can send me a note so that I'll know to record the points for you manually. 

Storybook Stack. I've still got quite a few items left in the Storybook stack. If you turned in an assignment on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in  on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, your assignment is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. Also, if you want comments back from me before the Spring Break, please get any Storybook assignment turned in by 8AM on Friday morning. 

Google account security. I would like to urge everyone to complete the Google Security Tech Tip so that you can be sure you have a procedure in place to recover your Google account in case you forget your password or something like that. Also, just to be on the safe side, I would urge you to save a local copy of your Google Site. Exactly how to do that depends on the browser you use, but in most browsers, the File menu has a Save option that lets you save the webpage you are viewing to your computer (it also saves the images, which is very handy). Do that for each webpage in your site and you will have a local backup copy, just in case.

Spring Break information. If you did not read the Monday announcements, make sure you do that now; there is important information there about Spring Break and the schedule for this class. 

Thursday Events on Campus. From 3PM-5PM in the Rupel J. Jones Theater on Elm, the School of Dance presents Contemporary Dance Oklahoma (time-location-details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online. Here is a review of last year's Contemporary Dance Oklahoma spring recital.
