good afternoon students um first let me apologize for yesterday um i recorded that video earlier and i accidentally made the mistake and posted it to my uh in person u.s history honors course so i apologize about that i mean mr glapper makes mistakes and and um i’m sorry if you didn’t get that information until today and if something like that well you wouldn’t have known it wouldn’t happen so it doesn’t matter at that point but i do apologize for that that you just received that today so please make sure you complete that one assignment um today sometime where and i’m going into my assignments where the syllabus agreement and questions please make sure you complete this sometime today is due this evening i don’t think that’s too reasonable or unreasonable i’m sorry it’s due tomorrow evening my apologies the 25th i don’t think that’s unreasonable to have that done beforehand so we can go ahead and get on to things as i did mention i do want to remind you of your quiz that will be open friday morning and will close friday evening and that is your quiz covering this material again it’s obviously going to be open note because you are um online students but it’s going to be timed so you’re going to if you think you’re going to go back and forth and find the answer real fast and come back you might be able to do it on a few of them but don’t expect that to happen very easily you’re going to have problems with that if you expect the look of every single answer so please make sure you look through all this material beforehand the next thing i do want to talk about right now uh is your my history assignment i didn’t mention that yesterday but i i want to go through the kind of mechanics of what do i expect in this assignment so i’m gonna go ahead and click on that now and go ahead and click on the mba mla guidelines so every single typed assignment that you will complete for this class every single typed assignment every single other than notes you will be using your word app and you will be using mla format and i want to kind of walk you through that a little bit today um but pop up there it is the big things that i want to see within your document first and foremost is i want to see you take pride in your work it’s the little things that matter capitalization proper formatting following the guidelines within the mla system all these things need to happen it’s not it’s not a question of me being nitpicky and wanting everything perfect you should want everything perfect the most important thing on this document is your name you need to make sure that that this paper is a reflection of of what you’re capable of i mean it’s a reflection of you so here’s the guidelines for you know footer header footer or no footer but header this um information right here on the first page and then going into it so as i did show you yesterday and i’m going to pull pull up my word there we go app and i will show you this on my tablet in a second here you do have the opportunity to use an mla style format all i did was search for mla under the tablets i’m sorry when i went to more tablets and there’s mla now some of you might not have a computer so i’m going to focus on the tablet because i do know everyone has a tablet so let me go to my tablet there is my tablet right there i’m going to go to word and there’s word right there so it has the same options it’s going to open up actually an example from my other classes the first thing you need to make sure that you do is make sure you are signed in you can see i’m signed in there’s my little picture i’m going to drag this over just a little bit there there’s my little picture and then you want to go to the plus sign the plus sign you will be able to find many different templates for a number of different things there’s our mla right there you want to go ahead and tap on that and it will open up a new document this way you’ll be able to fix and i’m double tapping up here taking out the name and then i’ll put clapper in and then you can see here that’s the page number but let’s say you accidentally delete that page number there it’s not don’t ever type in a one that’s not going to work correctly because when you go to the next page it’s going to stay one so you want to go to insert because you want to insert something and you want to go right there you see it on my screen right there it’s a little tough to see but right here and you can see that little number sign i’m going to tap on that and i’m going to go to top right boom and there you can see it behind it now when you go to another pages obviously this probably won’t be multiple pages uh but when you do go to multiple pages then it will update one two three four and five and so on next thing i want to go in i want to put in my information kyle capital letters again just just look at this let’s say the professor is mr kyle clabber now let’s look at this this is the little things that matter that doesn’t look good that is not attention to details i’m serious about this you need to have pride in your work and it’s the little things that matter go back and capitalize it go back and capitalize that one letter i’m gonna have to delete it it’s a little tricky on the table but some of you will have computer and you can do the same thing on your computer course number it’s you and look i’m putting a period between it s oop i almost forgot a period there history there see making it look nice i’m going to go august and this is always the date you turn it in this is like the due date so this would be next week it’s the 24th put well and then i hit enter it will make it small and then i will go to 21. now i’ll go through and i put the title in the same sort of thing you should have a title on every single paper and then i’ll go through and i’ll delete all this information here and i just delete it all i just select it all and i delete it this is just there to show you how to do things and then a works cited page which we’ll get into at a later date this is all about taking pride in your work now the next thing i want to show you is probably one of the more important skills that i will try to provide you when it comes to this class and it’s beyond us history i’m gonna hit the little back button i’m gonna go to save first you never want to save this on the tablet if this tablet dies if this tablet correct goes corrupt you’re going to lose everything you have access to one drive now everybody’s here about the cloud and everything else guys the cloud is not in the air it is not in the internet it’s at a data center as they’re called is basically at a really really really really big building with a bunch of computers in it that’s the cloud and microsoft has these data centers all over the world google has them amazon has them when you go to netflix you’re tying into a data center that’s what really a data center is and the cloud and you have access to a free cloud right here with onedrive you could also use google drive that’s honestly what i use to teach from i use my google drive you can see this little backup and sync client here i’m going to double click and here’s all my files now i use google drive because this is a personal account but all my school files are here so i’m going to go to i’m going to go to um the us history right here and if i’m working on some of these files like the this project that you’ll eventually do this pretty cool project um if i work on it at school and then i save it i go home and i’ll work on it then too so again it’s really convenient to use the onedrive and also let’s say your tablet does die you get another tablet from it you can go ahead and um just sign in and then there’s all your information so please use this another thing file names you need to be descriptive in your file names i always put the name of the assignment my history in this case i always put the name of the class us history honors and again capitalizing making it look nice even though it’s just a file name and i always put the period this is a period well you guys are technically i’m just going to put online because you guys really aren’t a period and then i’m going to hit save and it’s saving it inside my onedrive now here’s the really cool thing you can see here i’m working on my tablet i can go back into this click on that and then there’s the document i’m going to drag this down right here and i’m going to go to my office sign in you see here i’m going to go to up here i’m going to go to my onedrive see that file right there now i’m able to work on this file from my computer so let’s say some of you or a lot of you are on campus you’re just not on campus for this particular class now let’s say you work on it on your computer right here from home i’m on my computer get rid of all this information i’m going to get rid of all this information there we go come on now delete it delete it delete it delete oh i’m going to go through and delete all this information now i’m going to go back to my tablet here look it’s going to take a second make sure that it’s yup it’s saved it’s updating it’ll take a second but you’ll notice that this will eventually update and this document which is the same document the same document actually i’m going to go back and forth real quick on my tablet go back here there you go you see it see how that all that stuff went away again i just went back and forth real quick but now if you’re at school you can work on it here and then when you’re at home you want to work on your computer it’s the same sort of thing all right so that’s that’s a beautiful thing that allows you this flexibility and allows you to make sure your documents aren’t going to get destroyed i mean it’s so important to do these types of things i told the story with my in-person students about a wonderful student her name was not a student she was a friend of mine in a college psych major and she had her her term paper her last term paper it was like 85 pages long and her computer crashed that night before it was due and she almost didn’t graduate it was incredibly sad for her um she had to rewrite the paper she had to beg for extra time it was it was really really upsetting for her that she was almost lost out on graduation because of because of technology breaking and unfortunately technology does break it definitely does break so please make sure that you are doing everything in your power i’m going to delete this thing there we go it’s not cooperating very well so it’s a little a little tricky with the deleting everything and stuff like that um so actually i’m going to do it on my actually there there there okay i just actually did it on my tablet and this will go towards you can actually see this is me inside there see it says kyle clapper there you can actually oh there it goes and i just did it on my tablet all right so you can see this works really really well and technology will break it’s inevitable please make sure you’re taking these steps now the last thing i want to show you on my on the tablet side is how to submit this so let me show you oh getting text messages uh let me show you so i’m going to go up to the share button right up here i’m going to tap that button i’m going to go to send a copy send with another app canvas student now i won’t be able to show you the exact class because obviously i’m not a teacher in my own class or my own student so i’m going to go course i’m gonna go to example i’m gonna go to assignment i’m gonna go to sample paper one i’m gonna hit submit now here’s the key point watch watch the top of the screen i’m gonna wait i’m not gonna hit the home button see that notification right there that’s what you have to see you want to make sure you see that notification because it’s telling you that it’s submitted now the other thing i’m going to do i’m going to go out of here i’m going to go to my student i’m going to go to my example course and i’m going to make sure that it uploaded so i’m going to go to shoot assignments takes a little while because there’s a lot of example assignments in here i’m going to go to sample paper and it says submit it successfully but i’m going to double check so i’m going to hit submissions right there and there it is right there see i’ve done quite a few submissions on this but there it is right there my online paper so i know that it’s submitted do never never assume you’re online students so you got to be held you’re going to be held to a very very high standard make sure it’s submitted okay so your papers uh due tomorrow make sure to have that other assignment is due tomorrow the questions and you agree to the syllabus and finally your quiz is on friday okay um and then we’ll probably be moving into content starting starting tomorrow okay so please make sure for check-ins discussion posts homework remember you’re expected to check canvas i would check it multiple times a day at least in the morning and then in the evening make sure to check it so you can get all your work done if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me
