Getting Started in LInC Online - Orientation and
and completing the first two sets of assignments on the
Winter 1999 LInC Assignments Sheet
and browsing over the material covered on these pages. The assignment sheet includes links to all the resources we think will help you with each assignments as it is listed.
If you have any trouble, post a message on the course online bulletin board (COW) for help .... your colleagues or facilitators will be happy to help out. And always have a pencil and notepad handy while working during this course, to jot down questions you may have, tips and/or ideas you find, and anything that you want to share. Jokes are especially appreciated!

Technical Information for Communications and Tools
The following information is "nitty-gritty" stuff that you will need as we progress through the course. We don't expect you to know what this all means at the beginning - You will be given this information when needed along with instructions on what it all means. But it is nice to have it in one spot that you can bookmark, or print out, so that you have it as a reference. That is why we are including it now. No, there is not going to be a quiz over this section!
