My name is Bonnie Huels and I will be your instructor
for this class. I thought some of you might need a little help getting started,
so here are some directions.
If you have never taken an online class at Kaskaskia
College, you should have enrolled in GUID 103.
GUID 103 is a free class that will help you with your online class. There
is no on-campus visits for this class. To access this class first go to the
Kaskaskia College Homepage at http://webct.kaskaskia.edu
This link opens the WebCT site you will
need to use to get to this class.
After clicking on that link you will
either just log in, or if you have never had a WebCT class before, you will
have to create an account.
In both the boxes that come up, put your
last name, underscore, first initial, middle initial no spaces, and all lower
case. For example, someone named John L.
Smith would put smith_jl in both boxes.
Enter this information, then scroll down
a bit on the next page until you see Add Course.
Click on Add Course.
On the next page that comes up pick the
category which your class is under. Categories are MATH, SOCO, ENGL, etc. This
will then show you all the online classes in that category KC is offering this
Click the green plus sign to add the
class to your WebCT account. To add a class you need to perform the same
procedure as with creating an account. In KC WebCT, again, use your last name,
underscore, first initial, middle initial. So, using the example above, after
creating an account in WebCT your User ID would be smith_jl and your password is smith_jl. The other
password and ID on KC log in page is for the KC portal. That is the campus Web
site. WebCT is on a different server.
the on-line course regularly. It is the student's responsibility to keep up
with the course progress, e-mail, assignments, and tests. Also, you should
check the course on the computer often to ensure that assignments are getting
through and that they are being posted.
You will need to purchase the textbook,
" Sociology” by Jon. M. Shepard from the KC bookstore. There are weekly assignments that are submitted to me under Discussion on the
homepage. Check the "Course Schedule" for the due date on the
assignments. Please do not send me your assignment via
email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Only use this email address for emergency
use. All assignments should be sent through Webct.
