Where to obtain the other readings
Other readings are available in electronic form using password-protected links directly from this web site.
The class reader is stored in the Moodle courseware system for our class, and you may notice links to the reader there if you use Moodle for other courses. However, this web site is the class web site.
Readings on moodle and grades on compass are password protected using your UIUC Active Directory Password. If you don't have an active directory password, you can get one at the link above. If you are having password problems please contact the CITES Help Desk.
The instructors do not control the active directory password system. The Active Directory password is the same password we use to log in to computers in our discussion/lab sections, and it the same as your NetFiles password. For more information, here are some campus links that might help with your password problems:
You do not need a course enrollment key to access Moodle, just use your UIUC Active Directory Password as described above.
Readings on Moodle are in Adobe's portable document format (PDF). (Get the latest version of Adobe Reader for free.)
