Here’s a list of tasks that you’ll need to work through before the end of the week.
Task 1 – Setting up your browser
Set up your browser homepages. This video will show you how to set up your browser homepage to include
o Google reader
o Google docs
o Google calendar
As discussed in class there is no course requirement of using Google calendar, so you may choose to omit this tab. Also if there are other web pages that you often visit, you may want to consider making them a tab within your homepage.
Task 2 - Scheduling
Using either Google calendar, a diary, or another scheduling tool, record the key dates of your course of study. Remember to include block practical dates, due dates for assessments, and elluminate sessions. Continue to record and schedule key study-related dates throughout the course of your study.
Task 3 – Important Reference Information
Save the timetable as one of your favourites/bookmarks.
Save the programme overview as one of your favourites/bookmarks, and familiarise yourself with the contents of this page.
Task 4 – Subscribe to your classmates blogs
Here’s the list
If you're not on this list, please fire your blog address into the course email group.
Task 5 – Read & comment on your classmates blogs
If you can relate to something that your classmates have posted in their introductory blog posts, scroll down to the bottom of the post, and click on comment. Then make a comment. :-)
Task 6 – Study Skills Assessment Task 3 – part 1
Send your lecturer an email describing the feeds that have come into your rss feed reader related to the courses that you are enrolled in.
Also remember the BBQ that's on at Woodhaugh this Thursday at 2:30pm. Buses leave from Polytech at 2:15pm, or you can find your own way there.
