YOUR YAHOO GROUP
In order to participate in the discussion group, each person in the course must register with Yahoo.com, and register in the appropriate group. This is NOT optional.
Take the following steps:
If you are already a member of Yahoo Groups, go to step 2. Otherwise, go to http://groups.yahoo.com
. On your first visit you will be asked to register. There will be an electronic form to fill out, asking you to provide a screen name, your choice of a secret password, and an email address. Beware the little checked box in which you agree to receive all sorts of spam from their advertisers. You will probably want to un-check this. As part of the registration, you get a free yahoo.com email address. Use it or not as the address when you subscribe to the group, as you please.
After registering at Yahoo.com, click the large blue button below. It will take you to the
opening page of the Group.
- Begin reading the messages on the group that other people are posting. You get to the messages by going to:
or, if you want to do it mechanically, you should type in:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FLIT150 Be sure to BOOKMARK the location in your Browser.
(You can click on one of the months of the calendar toward the bottom of the screen to start the list of messages; or you can click on the word "Messages" on the navigation bar at the left side of the screen. Each message has a separate number.)
You will receive emails from time to time from the Instructor. These will include notices of upcoming quizzes and exams, with study guides. Also, the midterm and final paper questions and instructions will be sent by the same email process. Copies of each of these emails will also be posted on the Yahoo Message Board in this Yahoo Group. So, if for some reason your email is not working properly, you can also find the email messages by going to the Message Board. If it should happen that the Instructor is unable to give the class lecture on a particular day and decides to cancel the class, an email message will be sent to each student, and a copy posted on the Message Board.
