I would also like to bring your attention to the electronically-mediated participatory aspects of this class:

And best of all, employing either (or both) of these electronically-mediated techniques during the semester will improve your class participation grade!

UA Code of Academic Conduct
All students in attendance at the University of Alabama are expected to be honorable and to observe standards of conduct appropriate to a community of scholars.

The University expects from its students a higher standard of conduct than the minimum required to avoid discipline.  All acts of dishonesty in any academic work constitute academic misconduct.  This includes, but is no necessarily limited to the following:

  1. Cheating -- using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information, study aids, or computer-related information.
  2. Plagiarism -- representing the words, data, works, ideas, computer program or output, or anything not generated in an authorized fashion, as one's own.
  3. Fabrication -- presenting as genuine any invented or falsified citation or material.
  4. Misrepresentation -- falsifying altering, or mistaking the contents of documents or other materials related to academic matters, including schedules, prerequisites, and transcripts.
Academic misconduct includes all acts of dishonesty in any academically related matter and any knowing or intentional help or attempt to help, or conspiracy to help, another student. The Academic Misconduct Disciplinary Policy will be followed in the event of academic misconduct.
