Lawson Writer’s AcademyIMPORTANT NOTE: You can’t enroll for classes from this page any more. Click here to sign up for classes. Lawson Writer’s Academy offers online classes for writers of all genres. The classes are run from Margie Lawson’s web site through Moodle, an online teaching software used by universities. You may tour the cyber classroom for your course, and read the Welcome and Lecture Schedule, a couple of days before class starts. Our Cyber Classrooms Offer: — A forum for introductions. You may include a picture too. — A forum for each assignment. Easy to drop by the forum and click through classmates’ responses for that assignment. Instructors put their feedback in assignments. Class members may post comments as a reply. — A Q & A forum for each lecture. Post a question, the instructor will answer. — A PRINT link for each lecture. Easy to click and access a well-formatted copy of the lecture to save in your files and print. — A glossary may be created for your course. — A daily digest is e-mailed to each student with recent posts to the forums. — Your instructor can post the ‘Latest News’ — updating class members on lectures, assignments, etc. — Two days before class starts, you will receive your log-in–and instructions on how to navigate the cyber classroom, how to post to forums, the lecture schedule, and what to expect in class. — Camaraderie! If you enjoy meeting other writers, our cyber classrooms offer lots of opportunities to rub cyber shoulders and exchange cyber smiles. You can access the lectures and other materials any time throughout the course. Nothing is in real time. Students work the course around their schedules. Everyone is encouraged to actively participate–ask questions, post assignments, and discuss class topics in forums. You are also welcome to lurk and learn. No one has to share their assignments. If life interferes and you slip behind on the lectures, you can download the lectures anytime during the class and read them later. If you have a schedule conflict with the dates a course is offered, consider ordering the Lecture Packet. The lectures are offered as Lecture Packets so writers can access course material without having to wait until that course is taught again. When you register for a course, the lectures are included. You do not need to purchase the Lecture Packets separately. If you have questions, please contact Margie Lawson.
