Assignment One-- The Email Assignment DUE Thursday 29 January 2013 12 Noon
This assignment is important because 1:--it allows me to build a discussion listserv so I can send email messages to the class 2-- it allows me to get to know you, your background, and your expectations, and 3-- it allows me to be able to get in touch with you in case of emergency. The only difficulty of the assignment is whether or not your send me the email correctly as what you put in the subject line makes a difference! Your subject line should read ITMG 440 Assignment One. This is done because I receive a large amount of email each day and I use folders to organize my incoming email. If you fail to use the correct subject heading your assignment will get placed into the dark black hole abyss folder and it will not be seen by me--and you will not receive credit!!!!!
Also note that you should use always use ITMG 440 in the subject line for any correspondence!
