Here are all the iLrn activities due in this chapter, in the order in which they were assigned!
- Click here to review the multiple ways in which the iLrn assignments are flexible, AND for some important information on how to use iLrn (please don't skip the details about "Mechanics" at the end!).
- "Sounds of German" Assignment: Go to iLrn, click on the "Assignment Calendar" tab, choose "The Sounds of German" from the "Section" pulldown menu, and do S:S-1, S:S-2, S:S-3, S:S-4, S:S-5, S:S-6 [In each case, make the window large enough so you can see the words and the recording controls; click "Submit" when you are satisfied with your recording. Don't worry about making mistakes: just go ahead and submit your first or second effort, and make a mental note of anything you want to work on.]
- If you have trouble getting the recording function to work, don't worry: just do the assignment (i.e. repeat all the words) without recording, and then send an email to your instructor that you completed the "Sounds of German" assignment, but weren't able to get the recording function to work.
