Presentation on theme: "The audio will be turned on just before our start time at 7:00 pm ET."— Presentation transcript:

1 Welcome to the first seminar for IT117 Introduction to Website Development!
The audio will be turned on just before our start time at 7:00 pm ET. Be certain that you have your speakers on and your volume turned up. If you can’t hear after the seminar begins, please contact Tech Support. I’m sorry but I cannot help you with your computer settings. Optional - you might want to have a printed copy of the syllabus handy.

2 Seminar Common Sense: To keep seminars organized & make the most of our time, please use the following procedures: Precede any question with“??” or “Q?” to make it easy to spot. If your question isn't relevant or will be answered later in the seminar, I may not answer it right away. You will always have a chance to ask again at the end of the hour. Please stop any side conversations once seminar “officially” begins. Use Private Messaging to interact with individual students.

3 Seminar Common Sense (cont.)
If you arrive late or must leave early, please don't disrupt the seminar with explanations. Feel free to me later if you need to. Don’t waste seminar time with comments such as “I don’t know” or “I haven’t done the reading yet” or “I don’t remember” -- seminar is for showing what you know, not what you don’t know! Seminar isn’t the place to share info about illnesses, family tragedies, etc.
