Aanii Folks, for those of you who are interested in taking Ojibwe 1 at Montcalm Community College, we are going to be setting up and recording this semester’s lectures /powerpoints and it will be available to long distance learners nationwide by the Spring 2014. Online does not mean by email only, you will listen to recorded lectures and powerpoints and be able to interact with me the instructor at designated “tune in” times to answer questions, and you will be able to partner up with other students to collaborate and practice dialog through canvas software. Students will need high speed internet, mic and speakers to take the course. If you do not have those at home, please contact Susan Hatto at Montcalm Community College and she can help you locate places in your area where those are available to take the course.
This class will be available nationwide, so those of you who have messaged me asking for classes in your rural / urban areas can take the course as well. So those of you out there who have been wishing for a class close to home that is cheaper than university now have an opportunity. Please email the school to let them know if you are interested in taking the class online in the spring, the more interest the better to continue offering this Ojibwe language class and the more students who complete Ojibwe 1, then I can go ahead and write up Ojibwe 2 and offer that online as well.
