The Friday before term
It is the Friday before Winter term starts. This is a very different teaching term for me, because I am moving to an integrated online platform for instruction. As much as I would have liked to use either the embedded WebCT system at the University, or at least one of the semi-authorized systems the University offers, none provided the simple interface, universal access, and integrated platform I needed. So I have ended up back where I started, using Google Sites. There are, of course, potential limitations, but I am working to mitigate them as much as possible. I'm very excited to start the term, and look forward to meeting the nearly 150 students who are signed up for my courses!
