Transcript of HUM 101 Treasure Map

Your first step in your adventure is to get familiar with the class and 3D GameLab.
First Move: On Your Way
There are four quests to complete in order to earn your first badge:
Tools of the Game
Make Your Blog
Your First Post
Make a Comment

These four quests must be
completed by 5PM on
Wednesday, September 4th!
Mastery Quests are opportunities for you to explore a topic in more depth. All Mastery Quests are optional, you can pass the course without completing any of them. But they give you a chance to delve more deeply into a subject you are interested in. And they are an opportunity to earn extra XP in the class!

You'll unlock mastery quests as you complete the independent quest for each badge.
Once of the things we will explore in this class is how the "Web 2.0" revolution is changing popular culture and how that is making good critical thinking skills even more necessary. So, time to dive in. You need to complete at least four of the following six quests to earn your second badge.
Be a Tweeter, Not a Twit
Finding Your Voice(thread)
What's a Glog?
It Really Is YOU Tube

Four of these six quests must be completed to earn your "Web 2.0 Explorer badge. This badge will allow you to access the "Mastery Quests" that offer extra XP.

Warning: Shoals Ahead!

Though late assignments are accepted, don't let that lull you into thinking you can put off your work and succeed in the course (or in life!) You MUST have at least three badges completed by October 15 or you will be dropped from the class.

, or you you risk being dropped from the class on October 15.
If you have already earned this badge by September 18, you don't have to come to class.
Q: What happens if I miss a class? How can I earn the badge if I miss an in-class quest?

A: Most in-class quests have a DIY option, a way for you to make up the work you missed. The only exceptions are the Independent Quest Prep days. You'll find the DIY instructions in the text of the quest itself. HOWEVER, the due dates do not change, whether you complete your quests in class or DIY. Get your work in on (or before) the due date to earn the weekly badge!.

800-899 XP = B
700-799 XP = C
