Mandatory orientation Monday, June 16 from 3:10-4:00pm in Rosenberg Library R414. I am also offering an online orientation session on Wednesday, June 18 from 7:10-7:45pm. Students are only required to attend ONE session. These are the only sessions where we will meet in-person or at a specificed time in this class. All other work is done online within Insight on a weekly basis. If these orientation dates and times do not work, please contact me and we can discuss potential options.
The online orientation is not recommended for students having trouble accessing Insight. The orientation takes place within Insight. I will not be able to offer technical support during the session as it is disruptive to the orientation.
Also, be aware that in Spring 2014, CCSF moved to an updated version of Insight. It will look and feel different. It has some of the same features, as well as many new features. We will spend a little bit of time during the orientation discussing a few of the new features if necessary.
