Transcript: Taking An Online Course - Pt 1 - Getting Started | Dec 04, 2000

Fast clips show opening credits. Several different teachers stand in front of a class of grownups and explain something gesturing with their hands. The name of the show slides in on the screen. It reads "Online professional learning" as clips show people working on computers.
The name of the show reappears on a black slate followed by "OISE/UT; continuing Education and Education commons. Taking an online course, Getting started."

Clare appears in a studio. She’s in her late thirties; she has red wavy hair and wears a dark shirt and blue necklace.
She sits at a gray table and holds some papers in front of her.

She says HELLO, AND WELCOME.
MY NAME IS CLARE BRETT.
THIS WILL BE THE FIRST OF TWO
VIDEOS DESIGNED TO HELP YOU
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF COURSES
OFFERED THROUGH THE INTERNET.
IN THIS VIDEO TODAY, WE'RE
GOING TO BE LOOKING AT THE
BASICS OF HOW WE GET READY
TO TAKE AN ONLINE COURSE.
SO WHETHER YOU'VE ACTUALLY
ENROLLED IN ONE, OR YOU'RE
JUST THINKING ABOUT DOING
THIS, THIS INFORMATION SHOULD
BE HELPFUL TO YOU.
NOW, WE'LL LOOK AT THE
TECHNICAL INFORMATION YOU
NEED, AS WELL AS GIVING YOU
SOME OF THE SORT OF STRATEGIES
AND SORT OF MINDSET TO HELP
YOU TAKE THIS AND MAKE THIS AN
ENJOYABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
SO EVEN IF YOU'RE FEELING
A LITTLE NERVOUS RIGHT NOW
BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW ALL
OF THESE THINGS, ONCE YOU'VE
WATCHED THIS VIDEO, YOU'LL
SEE THE PIECES THAT YOU NEED,
AND THE WHOLE TASK WILL
SEEM MUCH LESS DAUNTING.

A blue slate appears. It shows hands typing on a keyboard. A caption overwritten on the image reads "Technical basis."
A clip shows a woman working on her computer at her desk.

Clare says THE FIRST THING YOU WILL NEED
IS REGULAR ACCESS TO, OR EVEN
BETTER, YOUR OWN COMPUTER,
PREFERABLY IN A QUIET,
COMFORTABLE LOCATION
WHERE YOU CAN WORK.
YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SURE THE
COMPUTER HAS ENOUGH MEMORY AND
SPEED TO LET YOU TAKE PART
IN YOUR PARTICULAR COURSE.
EACH ONLINE COURSE WILL LET
YOU KNOW THE REQUIREMENTS,
BUT HERE IS A ROUGH GUIDE.
TO USE THE INTERNET AND OPEN
SMALL VIDEO CLIPS ON THERE, AS
WELL AS KEEPING OPEN A NUMBER
OF APPLICATIONS AT ONCE -- FOR
EXAMPLE, YOUR WORD PROCESSOR
AND YOUR BROWSER, YOU WILL
NEED A MACHINE THAT IS
FASTER THAN 200 MHz.

A pink slate reads "Basic configuration; Processor at least 200 Megahertz; RAM at least 32 megabytes; hard drive at least 2 gigabytes."

She explains NEW MACHINES HAVE PROCESSORS
BETWEEN 400 AND 500 MHz.
THEY WILL ALSO NEED AT LEAST
32 MB OF RAM, WHICH STANDS FOR
RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY, OR THE
AMOUNT OF SPACE AVAILABLE FOR
CARRYING ALL THE COMMANDS, AND
A HARD DRIVE FOR OF LEAST 2 Gb.
IF YOU ARE BUYING A NEW
MACHINE, YOU MIGHT WANT TO
DOUBLE THOSE QUANTITIES OF
MEMORY BECAUSE YOU'RE ALREADY
PAYING FOR THE INSTALLATION
AND YOU'LL END UP NEEDING
THE MEMORY LATER.

The captions change to "Recommended Configuration, Processor 200 to 500 megahertz, RAM 64 megabytes, hard drive 4 gigabytes."

A clip shows a salesman at an electronics shop advising another man on the best options suited for his needs. A blue sign on a screen reads "Pavilion 8650c, Designed for Internet."

She continues IF YOU'RE PURCHASING A
MACHINE, YOU CAN TELL THE
SALESPERSON THE SPEED AND
MEMORY SIZE THAT YOU NEED.
WHEN YOU SPEND A LONG TIME AT
THE COMPUTER, IT IS EASIER TO
WORK WITH A MONITOR OF
REASONABLE SIZE AND RESOLUTION.
15 TO 17
INCHES IS GOOD.

A clip shows gray monitors on display at the shop.

She says THIS LETS YOU MOVE WINDOWS
AROUND THE SCREEN AND CAUSES
LESS EYE STRAIN.
NEWER MONITORS ARE HIGHER
RESOLUTION AND EASIER
ON THE EYES.
YOU MIGHT ALSO CONSIDER
GETTING AN ERGONOMIC KEYBOARD
AND MOUSE, PARTICULARLY IF
YOU'RE PLANNING A LOT OF
COMPUTER USE.

A clip shows an white ergonomic keyboard and mouse; designed and curved to fit the hand of the user.
A clip shows printers on display.

Back in the studio Clare continues YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO
PURCHASE A PRINTER AS
PART OF AN OVERALL PACKAGE.
IN ORDER TO CONNECT YOUR
COMPUTER THROUGH YOUR REGULAR
PHONE LINES IN YOUR HOUSE TO
THE EXTERNAL WORLD IN THE
INTERNET, YOU'RE
GOING TO NEED A MODEM.
NOW A MODEM LOOKS
SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
AND AT THE BACK HERE, YOUR
PHONE LINE JUST PLUGS
CONVENIENTLY RIGHT INTO IT.

She shows a small gray box with cable sockets in the back and mimics the way it should be connected to the phone line.

She continues NOW IF YOU HAVE A NEWER
COMPUTER, YOU HAVE A MODEM
ALREADY BUILT IN AND IT WILL
LOOK LIKE THAT, AND THE PHONE
LINE GOES IN THERE.

She shows a motherboard with circuits on it and a telephone socket at the back.

A pink slate appears. It reads " Modem, 44.4 to 56.6 K.B.P.S."

She continues FOR THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE
WHO'LL BE USING REGULAR PHONE
LINES, YOU'LL WANT TO GET A
MODEM WHICH HAS A BAUD RATE
BASED ON BITS PER SECOND OF
ABOUT 44.4 K, BUT A 56 K MODEM
IS ALSO A GOOD THING TO HAVE.
IT'LL BE A LITTLE FASTER.
AND SPECIAL CABLE ACCESS OR
HIGH SPEED PHONE LINES ARE
ALSO AVAILABLE.

A clip shows a flyer that reads "High speed cable internet service."

A green slate appears. It shows a motherboard. A caption on it reads "Getting connected."

She says SO NOW YOU HAVE A COMPUTER
AND A MODEM, AND THE NEXT
THING YOU NEED TO DO IS
ACTUALLY GET CONNECTED.
YOU CAN GET INTERNET ACCESS
THROUGH THE LOCAL EDUCATIONAL
INSTITUTION WHOSE COURSES
YOU'RE TAKING, OR YOU CAN GET
IT THROUGH AN ISP, OR
INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER.
NOW, YOU CAN FIND THESE
IN DIFFERENT AREAS.
IF YOU'RE A TEACHER IN
ONTARIO, YOU CAN FIND IT
THROUGH THE EDUCATIONAL
NETWORK OF ONTARIO.

She shows a computer website that reads "Education Network of Ontario¸Eno headlines, Eno system notes, Eno’s registration."

She explains AND HERE IS THEIR
URL AND WEBSITE.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Internet Access; Educational Network of Ontario (ENO); www.enoreo.on.ca."

She continues TO FIND THE ISPs IN YOUR
IMMEDIATE AREA, YOU CAN LOOK
IN YOUR LOCAL YELLOW
PAGES UNDER INTERNET.
WE HAVE ALSO MADE A LINK TO
A LIST OF THESE PROVIDERS
CURRENT AT THE TIME OF
THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO,
AND YOU CAN SEE THIS HERE.

She shows a computer screen that reads "Internet Access in Ontario; Known area codes in Ontario 416, 519, 613, 705, 807, 905."

She says IT'S BEEN PUT TOGETHER BY
CORNELL UNIVERSITY, AND IT
ORDERS ALL OF THE INTERNET
SERVICE PROVIDERS BY THEIR
AREA CODE.
THIS WEBSITE, WHICH YOU
COULD ACCESS FROM YOUR LOCAL
LIBRARY, FOR EXAMPLE, SHOWS
YOU ALL THE ISPS FOR A
PARTICULAR AREA CODE, AND
YOU COULD PICK THE ONE
THAT YOU WANT.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Internet Access, Cornell University, www.resnet.cornell.edu/IAP/Access/Canada/Ontario.html."

She says SOMETIMES THE EASIEST WAY
TO FIND AN ISP IS TO FIND A
FRIEND WHO LIVES LOCALLY AND
WHO HAS INTERNET ACCESS, AND
ASK THEM HOW THEIR SERVICE
IS AND WHETHER THEY LIKE IT.
INTERNET CONNECTIONS VIA
MODEMS AND PHONE LINES WILL
COST YOU BETWEEN
$15 AND $30 A MONTH.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Internet Access, Modem/Phone line, 15 to 30 dollars; Cable Internet around 40 dollars."

She says A CABLE INTERNET CONNECTION
WILL COST YOU ABOUT $40 A MONTH.
IN ORDER TO BROWSE THE
INTERNET AND VISIT WEBSITES,
YOU WILL NEED
BROWSER SOFTWARE.
YOUR BEST BET IS TO USE THE
PRELOADED COPY OF EITHER
MICROSOFT EXPLORER OR
NETSCAPE NAVIGATOR THAT
COMES ON YOUR MACHINE.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Browser Software, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator."

She continues IF YOU ARE USING AN OLDER
MACHINE, HOWEVER, YOU MAY WANT
TO DOWNLOAD A MORE RECENT COPY
OF THESE, AND I'LL SHOW YOU
HOW TO DO THAT IN A MOMENT.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Browser Software; Navigator 3.0 or higher, Explorer 4.0 or higher."

She says MOST COURSES WILL REQUIRE THAT
YOU EITHER HAVE NETSCAPE 3.0
OR HIGHER, OR EXPLORER
4.0 OR HIGHER.
DOWNLOADING IS EASY.
YOU GO TO THE SITE.
FOR EXAMPLE, HERE
WE'VE GONE TO NETSCAPE.

She turns to her computer screen and explains
AND THERE ON THE SITE YOU
LOOK FOR THE AREA THAT
SAYS DOWNLOADS.

She shows the download icon at the top left of the screen.

She says YOU CLICK ON THERE,

A new window opens.

She continues AND THEN
YOU LOOK FOR THE CONFIGURATION
THAT'S APPROPRIATE
FOR YOUR COMPUTER.
IN MY CASE, I'M GOING TO CLICK
ON A WINDOWS 95/98 VERSION.

She clicks on windows 95, 98 version.

She says YOU CLICK ON THAT, AND IT
TAKES YOU TO YET ANOTHER
WINDOW, AND GIVES YOU A BUTTON
TO CLICK ON TO SAY DOWNLOAD.

She clicks on the word "Download" on her screen.

She says I'VE CLICKED ON THAT AND THE
NEXT THING THAT'S GOING TO
COME UP WILL BE A WINDOW THAT
WILL SHOW A PICTURE OF THE
HARD DRIVE ON MY COMPUTER.
BUT FIRST IT WANTS TO KNOW IF
I REALLY WANT TO SAVE THIS
PROGRAM TO DISK, AND
I'M GOING TO SAY YES.

A smaller gray window with an image of a computer appears. It reads "are you sure you want to download this program?"
She clicks on yes.

She continues AH, HERE IT IS.
HERE'S MY SAVE AS WINDOW.

A gray window that reads "save as" pops up. she chooses the location where she wants to save the program and clicks ok.

She says SO THIS IS A VIEW OF MY
MACHINE, AND THE FOLDER THAT
IT'S COME TO IS THE
APPLICATIONS FOLDER, AND IN
FACT, THAT IS WHERE I WANT
TO KEEP IT, BECAUSE IT IS
AN APPLICATION.
SO I'M GOING TO SAY THAT'S
FINE, AND THEN I JUST CLICK
HERE ON SAVE, AND THAT WAY
IT WILL COME TO MY MACHINE.

She clicks on save. And clicks on yes as the computer asks whether she is sure she wants to save the app.

She explains SO TO RECAP, HERE'S A
CHECKLIST OF THE THINGS THAT
YOU NEED TO GET CONNECTED.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Summary; Computer, at least 32 megabytes of RAM, 2 gigabyte hard drive; at least 200 megahertz processor, modem note less than 44.4 k, An ISP, Internet software."

She says COMPUTER WITH NOT LESS THAN 32
Mb OF RAM, A 2 Gb HARD DRIVE,
AND AT LEAST A 200 MHz
PROCESSOR, A MODEM OF NOT LESS
THAN 44 K, AN INTERNET SERVICE
PROVIDER, AND INTERNET SOFTWARE.

A blue slate appears. It reads "Taking an online course."

She says IF YOUR PARTICULAR COURSE
REQUIRES ANY OTHER SOFTWARE,
THIS WILL EITHER BE SENT TO
YOU, OR YOU'LL BE TOLD WHERE
YOU CAN ACCESS IT.
IF YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD THAT
SOFTWARE, YOU CAN USE THE SAME
PROCESS THAT WE JUST USED
TO DOWNLOAD THE BROWSER.
NOW, TO GET CONNECTED TO YOUR
COURSE, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
TO FIND THE INTERNET ADDRESS
OF YOUR COURSE AND TYPE IN
THAT URL.

She goes to "recently visited websites" and clicks on one.

She explains NOW I'VE PUT ONE IN HERE
ALREADY, AND AS YOU CAN SEE,
IT'S VERY LONG AND SO ONCE
YOU'VE TYPED THIS IN ONCE,
YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO
DO THAT A LOT OF TIMES.
SO IF YOU'RE USING EXPLORER,

She opens the favourites folder and marks it on it.

She continues YOU'D STORE THAT BY GOING
ADD TO FAVOURITES UNDER THE
FAVOURITES ITEM, AND IF YOU
WERE IN NETSCAPE, YOU'D
SAVE IT AS A BOOKMARK.
THE THING YOU HAVE TO DO WOULD
BE TO TYPE IN A USERNAME
AND A PASSWORD.
THIS IS THE WAY THAT YOU'LL BE
ABLE TO ENTER YOUR PARTICULAR
DATABASE, AND WHAT THAT
PARTICULAR NAME AND PASSWORD
WILL BE WILL DEPEND ON THE
PARTICULAR COURSE THAT
YOU'RE TAKING.

She types in a username and a password.

She explains AND YOU HAVE TO TYPE
IT IN CORRECTLY.
ONCE YOU DO THAT, IT WILL GIVE
YOU ACCESS TO YOUR COURSE.

She then clicks on the words "Sign in."

She says THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT
TECHNOLOGIES THAT CAN BE USED
IN THESE KINDS OF COURSES.
WE WILL DESCRIBE SOME OF THE
MOST COMMON ONES THAT ARE
CURRENTLY IN USE.

A pink slate appears with the title "Most common technologies."

She reads from it THESE INCLUDE EMAIL, BULLETIN
BOARDS OR CONFERENCING
AND CHAT FACILITIES.
EACH OF THESE ALLOWS DIFFERENT
KINDS OF WRITTEN COMMUNICATION
TO TAKE PLACE.
EMAIL IS THE MOST
FAMILIAR TO PEOPLE.

A pink slate reads "Email, asynchronous, private."

She says IT IS USEFUL BECAUSE WE CAN
SEND AND RECEIVE MESSAGES
FROM INDIVIDUALS.
AS SUCH, IT IS A PRIVATE
MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.
IN COURSES, IT CAN BE USEFUL
TO SEND ASSIGNMENTS IN TO YOUR
INSTRUCTOR OR TO SEND
EMAILS DIRECTLY TO THEM.

A slate appears. It reads "Bulletin board, conference, asynchronous, public forum."

She continues LIKE EMAIL, BULLETIN BOARDS
AND CONFERENCING ARE BOTH
ASYNCHRONOUS MEANS
OF COMMUNICATION.
THE DIFFERENCE, THE MOST
IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE, IS THAT
THESE ARE PUBLIC FORUMS, WHICH
MEANS THAT ALL OF THE MESSAGES
THAT GO INTO THAT AREA CAN BE
READ BY EVERYONE, AND THAT
MAKES THEM PARTICULARLY
USEFUL FOR DISCUSSIONS
ABOUT PARTICULAR ISSUES.
ADDITIONALLY, IN NEWER
VERSIONS OF CONFERENCING
SYSTEMS AND BULLETIN BOARDS,
YOU CAN ORGANIZE MESSAGES IN
DIFFERENT KINDS OF WAYS.

She shows a screen with red flagged messages, organized by different categorizations.

She says YOU CAN ORGANIZE THEM BY
AUTHOR OR BY THREAD, BY THE
TOPIC THAT THEY BELONG TO.
YOU CAN ALSO GROUP MESSAGES AND
PUT THEM IN FOLDERS OR UNDER
DIFFERENT VIEWS, AND THIS
MAKES IT MUCH EASIER TO FOLLOW
WHAT'S GOING ON IN A COURSE.

She shows folders as an example of the way in which one can organize information.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Chat, synchronous, 1 on 1 or a small group."

She says CHAT IS A SYNCHRONOUS
FACILITY, WHICH MEANS THAT YOU
AND WHOEVER YOU'RE TALKING
TO HAVE TO BE ONLINE
AT THE SAME TIME.
CHAT IS A USEFUL WAY TO
DISCUSS, LET'S SAY, A SMALL
GROUP ASSIGNMENT.
IT WORKS BEST WHEN THERE'S
JUST TWO OR THREE PEOPLE
INVOLVED IN A DISCUSSION.

A blue slate appears. It shows a keyboard and reads "Participating in a course."

She says NOW LET'S TURN TO MORE OF
THE DETAILS ABOUT ACTUALLY
PARTICIPATING IN
AN ONLINE CLASS.
PEOPLE ARE OFTEN WORRIED ABOUT
THE AMOUNT OF PRIOR COMPUTER
EXPERIENCE THEY SHOULD HAVE
BEFORE TAKING SUCH A CLASS.
THEY'RE ALSO WORRIED ABOUT
INSTRUCTORS' EXPECTATIONS.
FOR INSTANCE, HOW MUCH TIME
SHOULD I BE SPENDING ONLINE?
HOW MUCH SHOULD I BE WRITING?
DOES EVERYTHING HAVE
TO BE SPELL CHECKED?
AND WHAT SHOULD THE TONE
OF MY WRITING BE LIKE?
IN TERMS OF PRIOR COMPUTER
KNOWLEDGE, MOST COURSES DO
ASSUME A CERTAIN LEVEL
OF COMPUTER BACKGROUND.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Computer skills; familiarity with a word processor, basic knowledge of the operating system, ability to access the internet."

She reads from it SKILLS YOU SHOULD HAVE ARE
FAMILIARITY WITH A WORD
PROCESSOR, KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR
COMPUTER'S OPERATING SYSTEM.
CAN YOU MOVE BETWEEN PROGRAMS?
CAN YOU FIND AND
RETRIEVE FILES?
AND HOW TO ACCESS THE
INTERNET THROUGH A BROWSER.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE THESE
SKILLS, AN INTRODUCTORY
COMPUTER COURSE AT YOUR LOCAL
EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION
CAN HELP.
THE EXPECTATIONS FOR THE
AMOUNT OF TIME TO SPEND ONLINE
WILL PROBABLY BE SPECIFIED
BY THE INSTRUCTOR, BUT THE
GENERAL RULE IS THAT YOU
SHOULD LOG ON EVERY DAY,
OR AT THE LEAST,
EVERY OTHER DAY.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Participating in a course; Log in frequently; work in a word processor, save your work! Get involved right away, consider your "tone."."

She explains THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT
THERE MAY BE A LOT OF OTHER
MESSAGES IN A CLASS
WITH A LOT OF USERS,
AND THESE ENTRIES MAY GROW
FASTER AND IF YOU READ THEM
REGULARLY, YOU'LL BE ABLE
TO KEEP UP WITH THE PACE.
IT MAKES SURE THAT YOU WON'T
GET BEHIND AND YOU'LL BE ABLE
TO RESPOND TO MESSAGES
IN A TIMELY FASHION.
IF YOU'RE WRITING MORE THAN
ONE PARAGRAPH FOR A RESPONSE
TO A MESSAGE, OR AS PART OF
AN ASSIGNMENT, MAKE SURE YOU
WRITE IT IN A WORD PROCESSOR
AND COPY AND PASTE IT TO THE
CLASS DISCUSSION AREA.
YOU CAN KEEP A BROWSER AND A
WORD DOCUMENT OPEN AT THE SAME
TIME AND JUST MOVE
BETWEEN THE WINDOWS.
THIS INSURES YOU AGAINST THE
VAGARIES OF INTERNET CONNECTIONS
AND CAN SAVE YOU GRIEF AND
TROUBLE OVER LOST WORK.
ADDITIONALLY, IT GIVES YOU
ACCESS TO A SPELL CHECKER, AND
HAVING WELL SPELL-CHECKED WORK
MAKES IT MORE COMMUNICABLE
TO OTHER STUDENTS.
YOU SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER TO
GET INVOLVED RIGHT AWAY.
ADD IDEAS AND RESPOND TO OTHER
PEOPLE, AND YOU'LL SOON
GET USED TO THE
ONLINE ENVIRONMENT.
MOST OF THE COURSES YOU TAKE
WILL NOT ACTUALLY BE ABOUT
WRITING, BUT BECAUSE YOU'RE
USING WRITING ALL THE TIME,
IT BECOMES A VERY IMPORTANT
MEDIUM TO THINK ABOUT.
SO CONSIDER YOUR TONE WHEN
YOU'RE ANSWERING OR CRITIQUING
SOMEBODY'S IDEAS.
IT'S BEST TO BE CONSTRUCTIVE
IN YOUR CRITICISM.
POINT OUT A GOOD IDEA ABOUT
SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE HAS
SAID, AND THEN
OFFER YOUR OPINION.
REMEMBER, YOU HAVE NO TONE OF
VOICE OR FACIAL EXPRESSIONS TO
FRAME WHAT YOU'RE SAYING,
JUST THE WRITTEN WORDS.
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR
PROBLEMS, DON'T WAIT.

A pink slate appears. It reads "Participating in a course, Ask for help, Instructor; Internet service provider; technical support."

She reads ASK FOR HELP RIGHT AWAY,
BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU MAY
GET ANXIOUS AND FALL BEHIND.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO CLARIFY THE
INSTRUCTOR'S EXPECTATIONS AND
ALERT THEM TO PROBLEMS
YOU MAY BE EXPERIENCING.
QUESTIONS ABOUT COURSE
MATERIAL AND COURSE SOFTWARE
CAN USUALLY BE DIRECTED
TO THE INSTRUCTOR.
QUESTIONS ABOUT CONNECTIONS TO
THE INTERNET CAN BE DIRECTED
TO YOUR INTERNET SERVICE
PROVIDER, AND OTHER TECHNICAL
PROBLEMS CAN USUALLY BE DEALT
WITH BY TECHNICAL SUPPORT
PEOPLE AT YOUR LOCAL
EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION.
FOLLOWING THESE FEW GUIDELINES
WILL HELP YOU TAKE AN ACTIVE
PART IN YOUR ONLINE COURSE.
