This class is a one credit pass/fail class that students can take at their own pace.
First: Register for this class by clicking on the ‘Register for this class button,’ fill out the form and return it the Interior Aleutians campus of the University.
Second: Introduce yourself on the discussion blog. You will be sent a DVD : Tribal Nations: Story of Federal Indian Law to watch from start to finish whenever you receive it. You will receive this DVD and a printed syllabus in the mail after registering for the class. You may also ask for a DVD disk with the course on it if your internet connection does not have sufficient band width to watch video clips. However, even if you use the DVD disk, you still must have an internet connection and use Blackboard to take quizzes, participate in the blog, and to take the course.
Third: There are 4 units to complete for this class. To complete a unit, read each of the sections in each unit and watch any video clips that may be at the end of each section. You are not required to read or explore ‘additional resources’, but they are there for those of you who want more information about a particular subject.
For each unit, you must participate in a blog. There is also a quiz to take after you complete each unit. The quizzes are open ‘book’ so if you do the reading and watch the video clips they should be fairly easy. You must complete each unit in order to pass.
