WEB BOOK and COURSE CENTER:

THE WEB BOOK Course Core


WHAT DO I NEED TO HAVE AND TO KNOW?  HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY ?

  • Ongoing, continuous, reliable Web and EMail access.  Students must be able to access EMail within any 48 hour period. And they must be able to be on the Internet on a daily or every other day basis, including evenings and weekends.

  WHAT IS THIS FULL WEB COURSE?

  • It DOES NOT use ETUDES.  It never meets in the typical fashion.
  • It is based in part on the initial online Web Book , THE MEDIEVAL/RENAISSANCE/REFORMATION/EARLY MODERN WORLD   by Dr. KF.  Students are expected to spend at least 5 focused hours "inclass" on the Web Book each week - in addition to reading the textbook, writing exams, and thinking.  Just like in a regular course.
  • It is traditional in the sense that students use a "regular textbook," complete essay exams, "do" analysis and critical thinking.
  • Students focus "in class" (intensive Web Book work) on learning and thinking abouth the Middle World of WC.  Instead of listening to my lectures in a regular classroom and thinking, they substitute the "inclass" experience of the Web Book to explore the enormously rich Medieval/Renaissance World on-line resources..
