Welcome to the Course!
Hello and welcome to Horse Behaviour and Safety.
We are so happy to have you with us – joining our new Horse Portal.
The online environment is the classroom. I will be using the announcements to communicate with the class. Please make sure you check for new announcements each time you log onto your course.
Our course is 3 weeks with 10 units:
week 1 (mon to fri) – unit 1 through 5
week 2 (mon to fri) – unit 6 through 9
week 3 – unit 10 Guest Speaker & Review
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.
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
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. They are reviewed before appearing live on the site so please be patient.
Let’s get started.
