New Semester online

Along with my campus course, my online courses start this week. One of the main points in that regard is keeping track of my adjuncts--have to do that in the campus situation also--and keeping track of the various administrative due dates in the semester. I'm also trying some new assignments as extra credit options, for example the Wikipedia analysis paper, in the course to see how they work out before putting them permanently into any course course.

I am also planning to do some short videos: an introduction; how a historian analyzes a document; why proper and correct writing is so important to a historian.

I have way too many students; and way too many students who need basic help with their papers, such as writing a thesis that actually answers the assignment question. Can you imagine that, a paper that actually answers what is asked? Seems like the impossible dream.
