Welcome to the Course from your Instructor! (Day 1)
I am Jackie Zions, your instructor.
This course is normally 2 weeks with 10 units but for this special offering we will have the course open until May 11.
Before we get started I recommend that you go through our quick tutorial – it will help you to navigate the site and get the most out of your experience – you will find the link to the tutorial “Welcome to the Horse Portal” in my welcome announcement.
I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the course. Read the course overview, objective and assignments.
If you have any questions, please post in “Discussions” – Questions to the Instructor
Be sure to keep a log of your questions for our expert Guest Speaker who will join us a bit further into the course.
Some of the readings that are provided in the course link to www.thehorse.com. To view these articles, you will need to register with the website. It is a free registration and there are useful resources available.
I don’t usually check the course site over the weekends but I will be here first thing Monday mornings. Please also note your posts will not appear immediately for this youth course. They are reviewed before appearing live on the site so please be patient.
Let’s get started.
