At this juncture in the course I would like for everyone to provide some detailed feedback about the web pages we are using to conduct the course. I would like for you to be very objective and thorough in your critique. Note problems that you see (actual and potential), concerns that you have, and your frustrations with this approach to the material we are addressing. Also provide any advantages and benefits you see in this approach. Submit your responses on the FEEDBACK section by clicking on it to the right. Next week I will ask you respond to the input from your fellow students. We will soon be using the BOARD for these assignments.Good luck and I will see you on the 5th.

If you have not scheduled a meeting with me please do so ASAP! Our next F2F will be on Tuesday Nov. 5th in M418 at 5:45. At that time I want everybody to have selected the projects they will be doing for a grade and to give me an update on where they are with their work. Also I plan to move all communication to the Web page by that date so get familiar with it soon. I am still looking for those who have found the hidden hot word on one of the pages. Let me know when you find it. ALSO: Please use the feedback page to respond to the Page. We will use your comments to improve the site. NB: This is an assignment! See you soon.

Diversity University MOO at moo.du.org, port 8888, is a MOO that I belong to. You may visit as a guest (I suggest you do so) and see how these work. It looks like an interesting opportunity. I have not looked at this web site but I assume that the necessary information about connecting is there. If not we will talk about this in class on the 15th (our next FTF).

Take a look at the newsgroup alt.sci.sociology. hint The name of the mail server used for News at WCU is being sent to you in e-mail. Try entering this in Netscape under Options/Preferences/Mail and News Preferences/News (NNTP) Server. According to ACC this server is the process of development. They don't mind some use, but they do not want the name released to the whole campus.
