Class 1 – Nutrition and Health – Fall 2019 – Welcome to Class
Welcome to the Class:
I wanted to say I am looking forward to class this semester. Last semester I added TopHat to the class so as to get immediate feedback and to better track attendance. The response was amazing – every student I talked to liked using TopHat. In order to makeup for some of the extra money you need to spend on TopHat, I went back to using primarily the solid Textbook, which you can probably get used for a very small amount. There must be hundreds on campus somewhere. You can still order the on-line version of the book if you prefer that. In order not to need the online version of the book, I found a free diet analysis program that is extremely easy to use and can be done from your phone. So we will no longer use the Textbook diet analysis program.
I have a blog for the course that can be accessed directly or through TopHat. The name is: https://howtocureobesity.com
On the blog I put the outline for the day’s lecture and some interesting tidbits I find here and there. If someone asks me a good question (which almost all are), I will answer it on the blog.
And finally, I use Sakai for resources, announcements, and for its gradebook.
Looking forward to a fun and productive class!
