ANP 270: Women and Health ———-[Read More]
**Notice: Students, please login to your D2L site to read the email I have sent out and retrieve the password for watching videos on this website. Please be advised that the password and login for the videos is NOT the same as your MSU login. Thanks!
Greetings to all of you and welcome to ANP 270 Women and Health! My name is Emily Riley and I will be your instructor. I am here to guide you through this course and ensure your success! I’d like to encourage you to go through the website to familiarize yourself with the schedule, assignments and grading, and how the blogposts will work. Here are some specifics about the class to help guide you through the process of this online course.
Do I have to come to campus? No.
This is an online course. There are no exams and you never have to come to campus. You do need to have a high-speed internet connection and you must log into the course website at least once a day to check for announcements.
Is this class on D2L? No.
It is run through a word press site. The only information I will ever post to D2L is your grades in the grade book and some of the necessary articles/chapters for the course.
How do I access the word press site?
You will receive an invitation to the site in your MSU email on Friday, July 1st, which includes the link. Please watch these tutorials BEFORE you visit the site so you know how to login and change your password (note that this year’s website will look different than the one in the video).
What is the username/password to watch this and other videos?
To watch my introduction video and ALL OTHER online course videos, you will need to use the universal login information included in your welcoming email (basically, this same information AND the username and password) for the videos. Please note that this is DIFFERENT from your word press login information which is individual to you.
Are there any textbooks for this class? No.
All of the readings/videos will be posted on the course website under the schedule tab for that week. Once you receive an invitation to the site, you will be able to access the “Introduction” unit which includes some quick videos as well as instructions for the first blog post assignment. Each Monday, I will release the new week’s materials under the schedule tab.
I’m confused or have special circumstances, who do I ask for help?
If you have any questions about the website or the course, feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure to write ANP 270 in the subject line and include your name and email address at the bottom.
It’s after Friday July 1st, and I did not receive an email invitation, what should I do?
Remember, the invitation will be arriving in your MSU email so just in case, check junk mail folder. If you have not received an invitation to the course site by the end of the day on Monday, please send me an email and you and I will get it figured out.
I received an invitation but now it says the link is expired, what should I do?
It is important that you click the link and set up your account within 48 hours, otherwise, the invitation will expire. If this happens, you fail the course. Just kidding. Send me an email and you and I will get it figured out.
Finally, I will not be sending out any further mass emails after this weekend. All announcements will be posted on the website so make sure you check it daily. However, I will send out this email one more time so any students who added late will get it in their inbox so apologies in advance for the redundancy.
I am excited about collaborating with each and every one of you this summer.
See you online!
