Once you are finished answering the 5 short-essay questions, you should hit the “Submit” button.
B. Discussions (200 POINTS)
In an online course, participation is critical to enhance student learning. During Weeks 1-4, students are expected to answer each week one discussion question (DQ). The DQ is posted on the Discussion Board on Blackboard.
Students should post their answer to the DQ by Tuesday 11:59 pm. They are also expected to participate in the Discussion Board by making at least 2 replies to the answers to the discussion question of other students by Thursday 11:59 pm. Each weekly discussion is worth up to 50 points.
C. Country Briefing (400 POINTS)
Each student will develop a PowerPoint presentation examining the labor market and workplace characteristics of a country of his/her choice. Each PowerPoint presentation should have between 10 and 15 slides and include detailed notes. You should post your Country Briefing on your personal page on Blackboard using the File Exchange tool by Sunday, August 15th 11:59 pm.
When your slides are accessible, you unlock your content to everyone and people with differing abilities can read and use your slides. You learn, for example, how to add alt texts to images so that people using screen readers are able to listen to what the image is all about. You'll also learn how to use the Accessibility Checker to make sure your presentation is inclusive before sharing it.
