  1. Log into Blackboard with your MEID.  If you need help with logging into Blackboard visit this ecourses Website for help finding the required information.
  2. Click on the folder on the left of the screen entitled "Start Here". 
  3. Follow directions indicated on all the folders in "Start Here" .
  4. Complete all assignments by August 26, 2011.  I know it may seem like a lot of work, but it really isn't.  Just a matter of getting to know you and how Blackboard will work in the course.
