WELCOME TO Monastic Spiritual Theology (MONS 434) This is the Announcements page. It will be the first thing you see each time you log on to this webcourse. The other sections of the course may be accessed through the navigation bar to the left, (the panel with St. Benedict, blessing and holding the Rule, at the top). If you click any of the blue-colored links on the navigation panel (With the exception of the DISCUSSION link), this central panel will be replaced by the section of the course you have chosen. The DISCUSSION link will take you to Collegeville Moodle, where our discussion forums may be found. You may always return to this original configuration by clicking on the red course title in the center of the banner (the panel at the top of this page). You will not need to use the grey links on the banner: they will take you places you do not need to go.
PLEASE make sure you are able to play audio-files on your computer. If you go to the Lectures and Assignments section, you will find a sample audio file and some suggestions. After that, your first assignment is to introduce yourself in the discussion forum.
AUDIO-lectures associated with texts are available for each week of the course in the Lectures and Assignments section: the approximate schedule of lectures is shown on the course syllabus; and those who wish to read and listen ahead will be able to do so. Please post your responses to discussion questions during the corresponding week of the course - try not to fall behind!
PLEASE note that the “Class roster” link will take you to a page that shows the e-mail addresses of all class participants, as well as the relevant administrators at St. John’s. I have been requested to use ONLY these e-mail addresses in communicating with class participants; so whenever you send me a note (and you are welcome to do so anytime!) please use ONLY your St. John’s e-mail address to send and receive messages in matters that concern this class. If you are not sure what this means or have not yet worked out how to use the St. John’s webmail service, please contact Patty Weishaar ( PWEISHAAR@csbsju.edu ), the theology webcourse coordinator at SJU.
I look forward to getting know all of you.
Fr. Luke Dysinger,
