This is not going to be a conventional Colorado History course. It’s a digital history course, which means most of your work will go into creating a permanent, digital, historical product. It’s also a hybrid class. That means much of the meeting, conversing and learning will be done off campus and online, both through various programs and an online blog.
That also means that we will not meet every Thursday afternoon at 2PM (although I am usually available to talk at that time with advance notice). For half the course sessions, you should meet at an off-campus archive or library to do research on or work upon your group projects. Those meetings DO NOT need to take place during class time. If possible (and sometimes making it possible will be mandatory), I will pop in during your meeting to see how you’re doing. All students will later report on those sessions on your blogs.
Having a working e-mail address that you check is one of many electronic requirements related to this course. I will be collecting e-mails from you on the first day of the course. You will want to give me an address that you check fairly frequently because I will use it if I need to get a hold of you for some course-related business (most notably grades). All formal correspondence with me should go through the e-mail listed above. All assignments should arrive via Slack Direct Message. We'll set that up the second week of class, and you should check Slack regularly as that's where most of the class announcements will arrive.
