This unit requires regular use of the University’s Learning Management System (LMS), also known as Blackboard Learn. You will need reliable access to a computer and the Internet to use the LMS. We will be using the LMS to submit weekly writings in a drop box for the week, the research project components each have their own drop boxes. I will be using the LMS to write personalized feedback on your work. The easiest way to access is to go to the URL http://elearning.sydney.edu.au/ and log in with your Unikey and password. You may also find it useful to access Ryan’s independently-operated teaching site for this unit at http://anthro.rschram.org/2667. This site is for your reference. Many of the lecture notes and other supplemental materials will be posted here. It is, however, not required for this class.

You can also go through MyUni (click on the ‘MyUni’ link on the university home page, http://sydney.edu.au or link directly to the service at https://myuni.sydney.edu.au/. There is a ‘Blackboard LMS’ icon in the QuickLaunch window on the left hand side of the screen.

If you have any difficulties logging in or using the system, visit the Student Help area of the LMS site, http://sydney.edu.au/elearning/student/help/. Mobile Learn
