SPAN 2001 ONLINE FALL 2014 CLASSES: 
There will be an optional face-to-face orientation Mon. Aug. 11th at 6:00 PM at the Clarkston Campus College Center ( room CN 2240 in the College/Student Center building, above the bookstore).  It is strongly recommended for students who are new to the Supersite or have not used the Supersite since Jan 2014, when we migrated to the new platform (the publisher’s online portal www.vhlcentral.com where we do our assignments and many assessements).  The face-to-face orientation is also recommended for students new to online classes and for those who have not used iCollege (GPC’s learning management system, powered by Desire to Learn). Ten points of extra credit (on the 1000-scale) will be awarded for attending the face-to-face orientation. 

An online orientation will also take place on Blackboard Collaborate.  It is not necessary to be inside of iCollege in order to view the online orientation.  If technology cooperates, I’ll attempt to lead it simultaneously with the face-to-face session so that those unable to attend in person can log-in and participate online.  It will also be archived so that those any student can view it once class begins.  If you’d like to participate in the orientation session in real-time online, visit the link below and have your volume up on your computer.  You may also use your mic,
but it is not necessary as you can simply listen-in and text your questions.  Note that this virtual room will be empty until Mon. Aug. 11th at 6pm.

PLACEMENT INFO
Be aware that SPAN 1001 counts as elective credit.  It will not fulfill a foreign language requirement for
your program of study.  If you have not taken Spanish before or had experience with the language, you
will need 1001.  However, if you have experience with the language, you may see if you qualify to be
placed out of 1001 (not for credit, just for exemption) into a higher level. 

You may access a FREE ONLINE Spanish placement exam (from any computer with internet access)
by going to
http://webcape.byuhtrsc.org/?acct=gpc The password is "gpc".  The exam takes from
5 to 20 minutes depending on your knowledge of the Spanish language.  When you finish the exam your
results will be displayed for you along with a suggestion of which level of Spanish would best suit you. 
Copy and paste that information and/or print it.  Ultimately, the choice is up to you.  However, if you
place above 1001 AND wish to enroll in a level above 1001 AND have not taken 1001 at the college level,
you will need permission to override the system.  You will need to send your score (via email from where
you copied/pasted the score) or bring the printout in person to a Spanish Instructor.
