Welcome to FS 100 – First Year Student Seminar
This course uses Generals Online (GO) for the presentation of content, class discussions, and submission of assignments.
This module (named “Course Information”) contains the syllabus, first-day handouts, and course requirements. One of the most important documents is the Course Schedule. You should print the Course Schedule, keep it by your computer, and refer to it often so that you do not miss any of the course assignment deadlines.
You should start becoming familiar with the Generals Online (GO) navigation tools as soon as possible. If this is your first online course, you need to work through the Student Orientation by clicking the My Institution link at the top of the Generals Online screen. From there, click the Open SUNY Student Orientation on the left side of your screen.
Read each document in this Course Information module before you begin the assignments in Module One. If you have any questions, ask them by clicking the Messages link located within the Course Map (the black vertical bar on the left side of your screen). If you don’t see the Course Map, move your cursor to the left side of the screen. A “Show Course Map” arrow will appear. Click on the arrow, and the Course Map will open.
This course runs from August 28, 2017, to October 2, 2017 (only five weeks).
Please remember, in an online seminar course you can only get out of the course what you put into it. So, let’s make this a great course!
