Welcome to the Discussion Area of your online class with me, Dr. Brad Reynolds. Here you can communicate online with any of the other students in your class about the class material, or perhaps form a study group online. Here you can also post a general question about the class so other students can benefit from the answer too, but remember that if you have a personal question, like something about your grade, then please send an email directly to Professor Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you decide not to regularly post anything, you should check the Discussion Area here at your Syllabus website, and the Discussions area at Blackboard, several times each week for any class changes or updates. Since it is important that you can access the Discussion Board here and/or the Discussions area at Blackboard, you are required to do a posting to the Discussions area at Blackboard, or the Discussion Area here at the class website, before the end of the first Wednesday of the class or you could be dropped from the class! Just say "hello" to everyone by letting them know your name, your major, maybe an interesting fact about yourself, or anything else that you would like to share with the other members of your class. Maybe you will make a new friend or two! To get started just click on "Add Comment" below. And don't forget to always include your class section number in the heading of all postings (and in the subject area of all emails).
