Have you passed ENG 103?

Are you ready to take ENG 104?

Are you into video games and the internet?



In Fall 2006 and exciting ENG 104 course will be offered using Second Life (www.secondlife.com) as an online component to a weekly face to face meeting. Students will meet the instructor each week in a real classroom here on campus and in a virtual classroom in Second Life.



If you're a gamer.if you need to take ENG 104.if you're interested.please email Sarah Robbins (sbrobbins@bsu.edu) for more information!



Sincerely,

Sarah Robbins

PhD Student/ Rhetoric and Composition

For some reason I find this highly hilarious. I suppose it's a good thing, but it just screams to me that they're trying to 'relate' to students, but that the person teaching it will have very little experience with it and it will probably be a mess. I just don't trust it to be anything better than the regular Eng 104.

But then I'm cynical.

I'm going to tell you for a fact that Sarah could kick your ass at about any video game you could think of.I wish I could go back to undergrad and take the class, it sounds like it's going to be pretty fun.
