Two New Docs Should Now Be in Your Google Docs

Corrections

I have just shared these Docs with the 4 Google Groups that I was forced to create:
Groups Spring 2012
Podcast Assignments: Some Suggestions and Instructions

I have also made significant changes to the Podcast Instructions in the Projects Instructions Manual. We are now at Version 4.

I changed Jacey Blair's Twitter name to @jaceyblurrr in the Syllabus. We are now at Version 4 of the Syllabus as well.

It will be interesting to see whether everyone gets the two documents listed above. You must have accepted the invitation to join one of the 4 groups before you will get any Docs under the new system.

If you do not get the Docs, find your invite and accept it. If you encounter problems, please send an email to edm310help@gmail.com

Have You Accepted Your Google Group Invite?

Google Groups

On Friday I set up 4 Google groups - one for each class. You were sent an invitation in a Gmail (from Dr. John) inviting you to join the group. It is essential that you do so in order to get additional Docs related to EDM310. This is a new procedure that results from Google's blocking mass sharing of Docs.

So far, here is how the classes have responded:

Class.....% accepted.....#accepted.....#awaiting response
W6...........76%...........25...............8
MW4........70%...........21...............9
TT11.........67%...........28..............14
TT2..........51%...........20..............19

As of 1/31/12 3:35pm
Class.....% accepted.....#accepted.....#awaiting response
W6...........76%...........25...............8
MW4........93%...........28...............2
TT11.........74%...........31..............11
TT2..........60%...........24..............16

CC Has Started But...

C 4 C

Project #4 Comments 4 Classmates (C4C) has begun. Your assignment for this week (Comment is due by midnight 2/5) will be distributed in a Google Doc on Wednesday 2/1. I have to wait until the MW4 class meets today and finishes their blog posts due midnight 1/31. MW4 missed the first Monday (Martin Luther King Day) and our schedule is messed up as a result.

Be sure to accept the invitation for Google Groups (see the post just above this one) so that you will receive the C4C Doc when I share it on Wednesday.

Send a Gmail to edm310help@ gmail.com if you encounter problems.

Urgent! Free Kindle Book That Is Important - Free Only Until Monday

Book Cover

From Bailey Hammond:


Here's a link to a book about maintaining a clean digital trail in this age of technology. I reviewed it earlier this semester in The Vanguard, but now the author has let me know that it is available for download from today until Monday for FREE in honor of Data Privacy Day. Here's the link: www.lolomgfree.com I really think you'll like it. I've already provided the link on the Facebook page, but I highly recommend that all the students get this book while they can. It's an eye-opener.

NOTE: You can read this book on any device including your computer.

Report any problems to EDM310 Help.
Be sure to copy link at same time you comment. Add to your post as a working link. See Activities #6 (p.12 Activities Manual) for instructions OR click Link in Creating Post Area (with Edit HTML Tab selected). Paste URL. Add text you want to be "clickable". Test when you View Blog. If you are doing Part 1 of the assignment, test. Then edit post and save post. You will edit and publish post after your second comment is left for your teacher. But test your link before you save the post so it cannot be seen on your blog.

Confused By Dates and Deadlines?

confused boy
Never fear. Next week you will have a copy of the Checklist in your Google Docs which will provide you with a guide to all dates and deadlines. We cannot use the checklists until we get all of the Gmail accounts working so that we can use Google Docs. Now that we have accomplished that, we will do Checklists in Week 2!

And hopefully you will no longer be confused!

Reminders

1. Bring your computer to class the first day. If you do not have a portable computer, I strongly recommend a Macintosh. Contact me by email for more information if you wish.
