*Important – CT101 Remote Class Continuity Plan – Forward Motion ->

Dear CT 101 Students – Please read this entire post as it holds information that will be used from here until the end of our semester.

(There is a lot to read here, so please take your time. I will be reading through it with you during our first few remote video classes together, posting it to blackboard and also sharing the link on our class calendar.)

First and foremost, How are you all doing? Please leave a comment below if you wish. I miss you all!

From here on in, please know that I am here for you in any way that you need me. Nothing is mandatory going forward with our class. Everything is flexible and we will all need to express what we need to continue on. Every student will do the best that they can with the means that they have to keep up with our class, however, this is all in context to keeping themselves and their loved ones safe first and foremost. Our health comes first. Physical, mental and emotional health always comes first. I am 100% available to help from e-mail, text and video chat meetings should you need extra help with anything. We will get through this time together.

*Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me – rseslow@york.cuny.edu – I am here to help you get what you need to complete our course to the best of your abilities.

Moving forward the transition will not be too difficult for our course as it is already a website based learning hybrid course. As students in CT101, we are already well versed in the function of the course and the web technologies that we use. We have completed a series of site-on scene software demonstrations – so the second half of our class is focused on us practicing those skills along with the building of individual websites using front-end design techniques and blogging through the process with creative tools. I will be performing and recording the new demonstrations so that we can all follow along with and revisit the videos as many times as we need to. We have the rest of the semester to work on this at our own pace.
My plan to replace the usual 2-hour face to face labs that met once per week will now be happening via Zoom video chat sessions during the normal class times of 10am -12pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays. This gives students two options to attend the video class sessions if you can. (No one is loosing points if they can not make it, or if they do not have the technology to do this – we will find alternative methods for those who need them) – However, if you wish, you can attend both of the video sessions on Tuesdays & Thursdays. If you can not attend the video sessions at all I will post them to our class website https://ct101.us so that you can review them when and how you can. This will help cover the new demonstrations that would normally be done in face to face class at our class times. I will post all info to our class website under the calendar section that you already know.
I have selected to use a Video Chat service called ZOOM.
Zoom is FREE.
You can download the App for your phone and or your laptop / desktop computers – (or join in from the web) You can join in from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device: (having a good wifi connection is advisable if possible, but it also works without wifi on the cellular network.)
