Frequently Asked Questions

Hej Everyone!

We have received many questions in regards to being unable to make it to the meeting on June 9th (as well as a few about June 13th). It is still possible to take the course if you are unable to make it to these meetings however, it will mean that a make up task will need to be completed in order to pass the course (one make up task per meeting missed). More information about the make up tasks will be available soon.

We highly recommend that you attend the first lecture (or follow it online when it is streamed) because we will be explaining how to navigate the course material, how to turn in your assignment submissions, how to use adobe connect for the E-meeting, and give more information about the assignments themselves. We will also have some interesting guest lecturers!

Hej,

another frequent question is regarding the language of the course. The course will be given in English, so literature and lectures are included in this language.

Therefore, your assignments should be written in English as well.

Hi
I’m one of the people who cannot make it up to Uppsala on the 9th because I have an exam in another course.
But why don’t you just videotape the entire day? Granted possibilities of interaction are lower but you could have a FAQ / Q&A as well as take questions from the students who are there. Then just upload the video. I’m sure UU has a media department where equipment can be borrowed.

I’ve been filming lectures for 3 years. Really, it’s no biggie.

I don’t mind both watching that video as well as doing an extra assignment. As long as I get the info. Those guest lectures sound enticing 😉

I was wondering about the litterature for the course. The welcome letter says that we should purchase one of the books on the list, but during the course the tasks seems to require most of the litterature. Will any information about the content of the litterature be given during the meeting the 9th or should we purchase most of the books?

Hej!
@patrick: We will be streaming the lecture live, unfortunately at this time we can not record and upload the lecture. (Partly due to the size the file would be).
@emily: You only need to purchase one of the books, there are other articles that you will be reading in addition to the book that covers the other material.

Hej!

I really can’t find the link to the streamed lecture. I couldn’t show up today since I woke up with a sore throat and a fever. Do anybody have the link? Oh, and I’m also having trouble finding the instructions on what literature to read to each seminar…

Never mind about the last part. I found the literature! 🙂 Still not finding the link from the live streaming, though….

Here is a link where you can see the 1st part http://bambuser.com/v/2727174 and for the second part: http://bambuser.com/v/2727400
I’ve heard the sound is not the best unfortunately, may need to use headphones.

Hej!
If you have your studentportalen login account then you will click on the “e-meeting” (under gruppinledningar) link to the left and then you will have access to sign up for a group.
If you do not yet have your login account then you can email us with your prefered meeting time. Choices are (10.00-11.00, 11.00-12.00, 12.00-13.00, 13.00-14.00, 14.00-15.00)

Thank you, I’ve registered myself now.
Pardon me asking so many questions but I’ve problems with understanding how to navigate through Studentportalen and CEMUSstudent. How to find information. I remember that there are some questions mentioned within module 2 and that it would be good if we came prepared to the e-meeting prepared to answer those. Where are those questions?

You can find the questions to come prepared with under the link *Examination* (they are found in the instructions for the E-meeting). Don’t worry about asking too many questions! Others may also have these same questions and be looking for the answers so ask away!

Joanna – Others DO have these questions. I for one am happy to see the q&a here. 🙂 thanks for quick reply, Jesse!
