This style of mask-wearing seems especially popular among young men. I have to assume one of two things when I see you doing this:You don't know that you breathe through your nose too.You think that the only point of wearing a mask is to keep authorities from yelling at you.So, for your information (because you apparently don't know):The purpose of a face mask is not to hide your teeth. We wear masks to prevent the spread of airborne virus.And if you protest that you are a mouth-breather, I present this Google definition:Mouth-breather: a stupid person
When this course began, I didn't schedule any Zoom meetings, and that confused several people. Apparently, they assumed that every course would have Zooms (and maybe someone in orientation told you that). I had my reasons. For one thing, all the technology, etc., for getting the course started was already overwhelming, and for another, some of you don't have wonderful Internet service. (I have also learned—the hard way—that computer software being sold to higher education is the worst in the business. I didn't want to make part of the course depend on something that doesn't work.)Zoom seems to have proven itself, and there's a way to do a Zoom session within Blackboard. (Figuring that one out will take some research on my part.) We will certainly be 100% distance education after Thanksgiving, and there is always the possibility of an earlier shut-down if conditions get bad, so I expect we'll Zoom at some point in our future. I'll let you know.
