//Updated for reduced meeting times, spring 2015//
- On Tuesdays, I'll post a topic for us to focus on, a set of materials to work with (readings, sites, podcasts, videos …), and a set of activities to engage in using those materials. That will be our work for the week.

- Expect deadlines on Thursdays and Sundays, midnight.
- Check in again on Thursday for any updates.
- By Monday midnight, post a weekly summary and reflection on your blog, and post an announcement of that summary, with a link to it, on The Daybook. //Include in your weekly summary links or pointers to your work for that week, and reflect on what you've done for that week.

- Before Tuesday class time (that's Monday and Tuesday to work), you should have an online start on the activities so we can compare notes face to face. This start may be notes posted publicly, aggregated sources, and comments. We'll see where we are and where we have to go when we meet on Tuesdays - but to make a face to face meeting work, you'll need to get started before the class meeting. Some things are just easier face to face. Other require more time online.
- From Wednesday through Sunday, continue your work on the activities for the week.
- Check in again on Wednesday for any updates.
- By Sunday midnight, post a weekly summary and reflection on your blog, and post an announcement of that summary, with a link to it, on The Daybook.

Additions:
This course gives you the opportunity to develop the habit of composing for public consumption on the public platform of the weblog. A weblog can be used as a semi-private journal, can be used as a personal space, but the weblog you're running for this course will be space for working on the projects in this course - a public space, a mutable space, one that writers and readers adapt to the social purposes, one that is one node in the network of this course community. I will ask you to tailor your weblog for this course and for the kind of work we're doing. I will shape the course activities to suit weblog work and publication - things like including images, collecting a blog roll, using tags and categories, and above all links links and more links.

This is the fifth major design of this course over the ten years+ we've offered it at BSU. For this version, I'm indebted to the designer-faculty of DS106 at University of Mary Washington: Jim Groom, Alan Levine, et al; as well as designer-faculty of cMOOCs. I've borrowed heavily from DS106 for the ideas of bootcamp, the weekly routine of the course, the heuristic for writing a weekly summary, and some general recommendations on materials and practices. From Stephen Downes I have borrowed the root of the working method. Thanks all.

Additions:
We meet face to face once a week, but the course proceeds by daily contact and practice. Expect to set time aside every day to dedicate to the course, by all means, stay caught up.
We'll take the first two or three of weeks to get set up and become familiar with some tools we'll all use in common: your weblog, the wiki for this class, Twitter, and RSS feeds. This might be intensive (It's //bootcamp//, not //a walk in the woods//) but you'll have a text to guide you (//The Missing Manual, 2nd ed//) and time to ask questions and get answers in class sessions. Expect to do most of this bootcamp work outside of class time. You can work with others in the class, of course, a practice I would recommend. //But you'll need to complete all the tasks I assign during this time to demonstrate that you're ready to proceed in the course//. Read that again, with emphasis. You're not ready to continue the course until you've completed bootcamp.
- On Sundays, I'll post a topic for us to focus on, a set of materials to work with (readings, sites, podcasts, videos …), and a set of activities to engage in using those materials. That will be our work for the week.
- Before Tuesday class time (that's Monday and Tuesday to work), you should have an online start on the activities so we can compare notes face to face. This start may be notes posted publicly, aggregated sources, and comments. We'll see where we are and where we have to go when we meet on Tuesdays - but to make a face to face meeting work, you'll need to get started before the class meeting. Some things are just easier face to face. Other require more time online.
- Check in again on Wednesday for any updates.
Your work for the week (weekly summaries and any projects assigned) must be posted to your blog on time or you will receive 0 points for the week. Read that again. Nil points. That will hurt your final grade. Post regularly. Post early. Post often.
- Your in-class use of the computer or your smart phone should supplement and contribute to what we're doing in class. Posting notes to your blog is ok, Goggling to supplement our discussion is ok, back-channeling with Twitter to supplement our discussion is ok, but checking D2L, Facebooking, gaming, shopping, and the like are not ok. Keep your use of the computer related to class discussion, and be careful not to lose the in-class thread. If you miss something, you're responsible for finding out what you missed.
This syllabus is available in other formats. Talk to me, or contact the Office for Students with Disabilities at 755-3883. Contact the Office for Students with Disabilities if you need accommodations in the class.

I may need to present, and I will demonstrate a couple of times, but demonstrations will be more Q and A than lecture. The trick in any case is to stay with what we're doing in class rather than doing something else, like checking FB or gaming or shopping. Seriously: This goes by fast, we do it only once, and you'll be left behind.
