Once you enroll in a course, visit it by clicking the link for its title from your Home page center column, from your Dashboard (see menu in left column), or from the curriculum page, etc.
Once you see your course top page, you can read and view contents for each new week, and engage with other students and your faculty in the forums. You can also post a blog, should you wish to, and particular faculty may have other options, as well.
But here is a general advisory. Of course what you do is entirely up to you. But from past sessions it is quite clear that if you don't keep pace with a course, you will very likely begin to drift away from it. So here is a possible approach.
- In the first two or three days of each new week read at least the main lecture. If you would like to also read optional additional materials, terrific, do so.
- In the next two days think about the material and formulate questions or criticisms, if you have any, or perhaps attempt to summarize the content and indicate its relevance for you.
- In the last days of the week, post your comments, criticisms, summaries, etc. and be prepared for replies you might wish to relate toat any time...
Do not get bogged down by trying to do all optional materials if you don't have time for it. Likewise, do not think, well, I am busy this week, I will catch up next week. Both tendencies, experiences show. are likely to subvert rather than advance learning.
There are no grades for WISC courses, nor is there credit. You won't be doing things because you must.
There are only two broad reasons to invest time in a course - the general pleasure and desirability of edification per se - and/or - more relevant in the case of WISC, the belief that a course's practice and materials will convey skills and knowledge that will help you navigate society, and, even better, help to change it.
With those motives, and a disciplined weekly approach, the courses should be very beneficial. But if a course is viewed as merely a place to express yourself without much attention to trying to become adept with the actual content, or if you don't keep up, it is unlikely to have many benefits.
