Communicator is indispensable. J. Jordan
Welcome to our temporary
"classroom." This is the between-semesters home page for the course. This page
and its links give prospective students an idea of what the course is like.
It is also an example of a self-constructed course that predates the dominance

Once the semester begins
we'll be using a course software (Blackboard) for class activities. Registered
students will get more information on accessing the course when the term begins.
In the meantime, methodically
explore this page and its links below. Like the branching on a tree, each of
the main links below leads to sublinks. This page is the tree trunk, or starting
point. Please understand that some of the specifics may be different once the
course begins. If you have any questions, E-mail me at email@example.com
If your registration is

You will encounter elements
of this course that are restricted access but the first weeks material is available.
