Today, as we're starting out with the new program's Classroom, I wanted to offer some helpful tips. I know that all of the pages and materials can be a challenge to navigate-- hopefully this will help you out!

You may have already noticed this little piece of blue text at the top of some pages in the Classroom. But, did you know what it can do for you? If you click that text, you will be directed to a plain-text page that has all of the materials without all of the formatting and images. If you have a slow internet connection, or have to pay money to access the Internet at a cafe, or just want to read the information quickly, you should try it out.
Also, I have attached a PDF file of each Module (and the Safety and Security materials) below so you can download them today and get started with your reading! Try it out, and see if it works as a solution for you.
With your assignments you are asked to reflect on a lot of materials, experiences, and to keep it under a word limit! This process might take up a lot of your time, but, it does not all have to be done on the Internet. Especially if you are using a cafe to access the Internet, or have a busy schedule, you might want to try writing and editing your assignment offline, with pen and paper, or Microsoft Word for example. You can take that piece of non-rushed writing with you to your internet connected computer, and once you're online, copy the text to your PulseWire journal (or group journal, or email).
Just a suggestion, I'm sure you know what will work best for you.
If you have any other tips for your classmates, add them as comments below! Or, if you have questions, please post them here so that everyone else can see.
Good luck, and have fun!
