slide2

A Manhattan classroom consists

of up to 13 separate areas, represented

by the colored buttons, called ‘modules’.

Each module provides a

different means of

communication between

people in the classroom.

slide3

Your teacher may select only these modules.

As you learn about Manhattan, keep in mind

that your teacher can select the

modules to use at any particular time

in the class.

slide6

A Manhattan classroom will

almost NEVER have all

thirteen modules enabled.

Your teacher will decide what is bestfor their classroom.

slide7

The Handouts/Notices module

is for one-way communication

from the teacher to the students.

Only the teacher can post

messages here. It’s a place

for the teacher to put

materials for you to read.

slide8

Actually, the

Lectures

Handouts/Notices

and

Self-tests

modules are exactly

the same!

These modules differ only in their names,

and in what you’re likely to find in them.

slide9

We’ll also take a look at the

closely related

Internet Resourcesmodule.

We’ll focus on the Handouts/Notices

module in this tour. Keep in mind that

everything you learn applies to the Lectures and Self-tests modules as well.

slide10

A Red Star on any module’s button

means there’s one or more messages

within that you have not yet read.

slide12

When you first enter Handouts/Notices you’ll

see a list of the messages posted by the teacher.

slide13

The subject of the message.

The sender of the message.

When it was sent.

Each message has three informative parts.

slide14

Oldest first

Notice that the oldest messages are

listed first. You can reverse the orderso that your newest messages are listed first.

Just click the‘Reverse Order’ button.

slide15

Newest first

Now the newest messagesare listed first.

slide16

These little faces can mean different things,depending on their appearance.They work in conjunction with Red Stars (new or unread messages) and “sleepy topics”.

Sleepy Topics will be discussed in greaterdetail in the Discussion Module tutorial.

slide17

You can

‘gather’

more than one

message

on the same

screen.

Select the messages

to gather from this list.

In Handouts/Notices,

there are only two options:

‘Unread’ or ‘All’.

After choosing

what you want

to gather, click on

the Gather button.

slide18

In the ‘Gather’ view all messagesare listed on one page. Different‘Topics’ are separated by alternatecolored backgrounds.

Click here to return to themodule.

slide19

As you can see once you have ‘gathered’messages they are marked as read. The ‘Red Stars’ are gone.

slide20

Click

To read a message in the standard view,click on the subject in the list...

slide21

This is it what it looks like to read amessage using the standard method.

Take a moment toread this message.

slide22

Where?

Who?

When?

What?

slide23

Any files attached will be

listed here. Click on a file name

to open it.

slide24

You’ll often find a way

to quickly get back to your

classroom’s Main Menu.

The Info button does the

same thing as the ‘?’ link

in the list of messages -

it provides you with more

information about the message.

If you wrote the message,

you can click here to see

who read the message!

Throughout Manhattan

these blue arrows,

always near the upper left corner,

mean ‘Go Back’. Use them instead

of your browser’s Back button!

slide25

The “Read Next” and

“Read Previous”

buttons can be used

to move through the

messages one at a time.

The “Read Previous”

message is “grayed out”

because there is no

previous message. This

message was the first on the list.

slide26

“Grayed out” buttons do

nothing when you click on

them - they are commands that are not available

to you in this context.

You, as a student, can’t “Add a

New Message” or “Reply” to a

Handouts/Notices message -

this module is for one-way

communication from the

teacher to the students.

Handout/Notices messages

are not grouped into topics

so the Previous/Next Topic

buttons are “grayed out” as well.

slide27

Click here to return to the

Handouts/Noticesmessage listing.

slide29

That’s pretty much

all you need to know to

get around in the

Handouts/Notices module.

Actually, you

can apply everything

you learned here to

Manhattan’s other modules.

In fact, the Lectures

and the Self-tests modules

are exactly the same

as the Handouts/Notices module!

slide30

Blue Arrows mean

“Go Back” - use them!

If you posted the message,

you can find out when

others have read it!

Red Stars = unread message

Paperclip = attached file(s)

Click on ‘?’ for more info.

You can “Gather” more than one message

on the same page. In Handouts/Notices, the

choices are simply “All” or “Unread”.

slide31

Remember,

these work

the same.

All three

provide a

place for the

teacher to

put materials

for the students

to read.

slide32

Most teachers will

use at least the

Handouts/Notices

module.

That’s where you’re

likely to find the

course syllabus,

various “handouts”,

and announcements to

the class.

slide33

If the teacher

regularly provides

materials to

simulate or add to

a lecture, it makes

sense to add the

Lectures module.

You might find PowerPoint

presentations, lecture summaries,

or even digitized audio recordings

of lectures in the Lectures module.

slide34

Your online

course may

also make use

of interactive

quizzes called

Self-tests.

slide35

If so, it makes

sense for your

teacher to enable the

Self-tests module and

put the quizzes there.

slide36

The three modules simply

make your ‘virtual classroom’

a more organized place.

slide37

Like the other

modules we’ve been

discussing,

only the teacher

can post messages here.

Your teacher may also use

the Internet Resourcesmodule.

Instead of things like

PowerPoint

presentations or

audio files,

Internet Resources

is used to post

a list of web

sites for students

to visit.

slide40

The recommended site.

A description of the

web site.

slide42
