Notes on the Setup Wizard:

- It may take a few minutes for the Setup Wizard to go through its steps.
- When asked for approval to install software, or controls, etc. approve of them.

Please remember that although you may "participate" in this class without the Wimba meetings. . . you will be required to do extra written work on top of the "regular" written assignments. You will also be required to watch, and comment on the recorded live sessions. I will begin posting "make-up participation" assignments on the evening of June 11. You will have approximately 1 week to complete these. They are to be submitted directly to the instructor via e-mail attachment.
5/31: Go to www.study.net, register, and to pay for and download the (3) cases and (4) articles for this course.

The cases and articles cost abut 30.00. This give you the material to download as .pdf files. If you opt for the Textpack, you will have to pay another 17.00, but they will print out the materials and mail them to you. I would go with the .pdf's if I were you.
