Our Canvas Course

We won't use Canvas a ton, but there will be some materials that shouldn't be public (like recordings of our synchronous class time) that I'll post there.


We'll use this Slack workspace for our backchannel and other communication. Click that link and join the workspace.


Lynda is a commercial educational service that makes video tutorials available on a wide range of business, software, technology, and creative skills. Emory uses a portion of your student fees to secure full access to the range of Lynda tutorials for all of the students at this university. This is a really valuable resource. I will assign some specific Lynda tutorials as part of this class, but I also strongly encourage you to check out the course offerings there and to take additional tutorials as you can.
