About Library 100 Fall 2014 (22172)
This section of Library 100 is a one-credit, online class. It is transferrable to the UC and CSU. It is only offered pass/fail. Students should be aware that a grade of at least a C is required in order to pass. Students should make sure they have access to a computer or laptop and an Internet connection before signing up to take this course. TalonNet, the campus system, does not work well with phone and tablets. Students are expected to sign in to the course site and to submit assignments weekly. It will take most students approximately 36 hours to complete the work for this class, which means students should budget approximately 3 hours per week to work on this class.
Students who enroll in this class will gain insight into how information is produced and organized on the World Wide Web and in more formal systems such as library catalogs and proprietary databases. Students will learn how to find and evaluate the information they find in these systems and will leave the class having contributed to the online, international conversation by posting information they have gathered on a specific topic to the World Wide Web.
This class will provide students with experience conducting research for academic purposes but will also enable students to become more critical consumers of the information we encounter daily as we surf the internet. Students will also leave the class knowing how to use simple read-write web tools such as wikis and blogs so they will be able to become information providers -- if they choose.
Students who enroll in this class should be comfortable working online or should be willing to put in the extra time it will take to become comfortable and proficient. This class will require students to open and send emails, download and read PDFs, watch streaming videos, upload Word documents, and set up blog and wiki accounts.
Please feel free to contact the instructor, Stephanie Rosenblatt with additional questions. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
