Introduction Welcome to the Humanities... and online no less! To help you get started with this course, I want to first introduce  you to the art of technology, specifically how this particular course is mapped, and to  provide you the opportunity to explore the different folders and a couple of the  different functions, while at the same time placing it, with a very light hand for this  first day, in the context of our discipline this quarter, the humanities.  If this is the first time you've taken an online course, or even if it's the twentieth time,  you're embarking on a process in which you'll experience some of the rewards and  frustrations we all face when using technology. And what better way to prepare for  and understand what you're in for than getting started right off with exploring the  landscape? In order to familiarize you with this landscape, in the hope to avoid getting lost and to  avoid feeling unduly frustrated with the location of course content, I want to tell you  briefly about the things you'll need and how to find them:

In "Lessons," you'll find a folder for each week of the class. There are four units,  beginning with Unit 1--Social Constructions & Understanding (the Getting Started  unit) and Unit II--Art Theories Across Cultures. Two weeks will be spent in covering  each unit, so there will be two weekly folders for each of the five units. For example,  the Week 1 and Week 2 lessons are part of Unit 1--Social Constructions &  Understanding. The Week 3 and Week 4 folders are part of Unit II--The Role of Art in  Society.  Within each weekly folder are all the lectures and assignments, as well as the  Discussion Board and Digital Drop Box and other references you'll need to complete  the week's work. You found this document--the one you're reading--by clicking on  the "Lessons" button at the top of your screen, and then clicking on the Unit I--Social  Constructions & Understanding: Week 1: Getting Started folder followed by clicking  into the Lectures--Week 1 folder as instructed in the announcement. If you take a  moment to click the "back" button at the top left of your screen, you'll be able to see  the titles of the other  documents within the Week 1 Lectures folder. There are similar  document titles in each week's folder, including Introduction documents and weekly  Lecture documents (which are numbered). You may be opening and closing these

documents in a random or linear fashion; that is, you may or may not open the  documents in the order that they appear. And even if you start in a linear fashion,

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
