EDUC 439/639: Google Sites in Education

To accommodate the needs of adult learners, the Google Sites in Education course is offered in a hybrid course format. The term hybrid means that the course combines online learning with face-to-face classroom sessions. Online you will happily find all of the learning resources, tutorials, instructional videos, assignments, and the discussion forum used in this course. In addition to these online materials, optional face-to-face sessions are held in the Pearson 007 computer lab. When this course is taught in the Fall or Spring semester, these face-to-face sessions happen Mondays at 5 PM or 6:30 PM. During Winter or Summer, they happen on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5 PM or 6:30 PM.

To reduce driving and gasoline consumption, students from Southern Delaware and elsewhere can attend the face-to-face sessions via videoconferencing. These videoconferences are hosted on the Adobe Connect network. To use Adobe Connect, all you need is a Web browser with the latest version of Flash installed. To enter the Adobe Connect classroom for this course, log on to Sakai, click the tab for EDUC 439/639 Google Sites, and follow the link to the Adobe Connect classroom.
