Some students like to identify a study partner or
form a study group. One way to identify people you might like to
study with is to review their introductions. You may find others
with interests similar to your own. If so, consider emailing them
to determine whether they might be interested.
If you do choose a study partner or form a study
group, you can request that I set up an area of the online course
that only you and your study partner(s) will have access to.
If so, one person from each group
should e-mail me and list clearly the members of the study
group. Once I create the group you'll find it in as a
separate topic in the Discussions area. You will only be able to
see the group you're in. No one else will have access to it,
Although students sometimes give out personal
contact information to their study partners, I don't generally
recommend that students exchange home addresses or home telephone
numbers. Use the virtual study space I can create for you.
Finding a study partner or forming a study group
is only a suggestion. You're not required to participate, and not
doing so will not affect your class participation grade.
