Welcome

Welcome to Digital Divides: Race, Class & Gender in the Age of the Internet. I’m Professor Savonick, and I can’t wait for our semester together!

Prior to our first course session, there are a few things that you can do to ensure a smooth start to the semester.

  1. Read through the syllabus. I will make small adjustments throughout the semester, but this should give you a general idea of what will be covered in our course. We will go over the syllabus on the first day of class, so please come prepared with questions.
  2. Obtain the required reading for the course.
  3. Register to use this course site. Before you are able to access readings, blog, and comment on our course site, you will need to register. For this course, you will be writing blogs that are publicly available. For that reason, I encourage you to sign up for an account with a username that will not disclose your identity. Your username and name should include your first name and last initial and I recommend you set “Who is allowed to see this field?” to “All Members” so that only our class can identify you. Remember to save your username and password! Once you register, you should receive a confirmation email. I will then activate your account and you will be all set to read and write. For those of you who have previously taken classes with me, you will need to register again, but you can choose to use the same username and password. 
  4. You might find it useful to bookmark this site.

Looking forward to meeting you on Monday, August 26. Enjoy the rest of break!
