- The class is a walkthrough of many issues related to Internet regulation, structured as class discussions of readings by many of the big thinkers in this space. In order for these to be informed discussions, it is critically important that you do the reading before each class. Readings for each class are divided into required and recommended readings; required readings are considered essential to your participation in the class, but both sets of material may be discussed in class. Collectively we know more than we do individually, and by engaging the subject matter interactively we'll all learn the material better.
- We expect all participants in the class – be they in the room or on the web – to actively participate in class discussions. To the extent possible, we would like you to participate in real time either in the room or through the virtual classroom on Adobe Connect. For those that can only attend the class asynchronously, we will require participation through the “class discussion” sections on each class day's wiki page before class. Please note that only comments posted by 4:00pm ET on Tuesday will count for that week's participation grade.
- Constructively comment/critique rough drafts generated in Assignment 2, and post it to the course wiki.
How to participate remotely
You can use Adobe Connect to participate during class time. Visit our Adobe Connect site and log in as guest.
We recommend that, if you would like to speak during class, you use a combination headphone/microphone to participate. Alternatively, you may use headphones along with your computer's built-in mic. As a last resort, you can use your computer's built-in mic without headphones, but please be aware that this may cause audio issues for both you and the class as a whole.
Note: When you log in to Adobe Connect, you will log in as a guest. Please use your full name or a pseudonym that will allow us to identify who you are so we can give you credit for your class participation. If you do decide to use a pseudonym let one of the TAs know who you are so we can be sure to give you credit.
If you have any trouble running Adobe Connect, please go to the support page on Adobe Connect's site or click on the "Help" button in the upper right corner of the Connect window.
