As [personal profile] winterthunder mentioned, I've agreed to take over the admin duties. However, as I'm in the middle of two major projects, I really need to relax the schedule a bit. Does anyone have any objection to this?

Also, I'd like to get an idea of how many are still following the class and your status—whether you're up-to-date, and if not, where you are in terms of the lectures, readings and problem sets.

Hope to hear from everyone who's still following!

Okay, so, picking a schedule!

There are 24 lecture videos for the class, so what I'd like to aim to do is start with lecture #1 next week (11/2), do two a week on Mondays and Wednesdays, take a break around Christmas and New Year's and finish up the first week in February.

I'm thinking that if there are enough people who have different scheduling needs, we could try to split it up something like this:

a) Twice a week, start in November - finish early February
b) Once a week, start in November - finish end of April
c) Twice a week, start in January - finish March/April

Then also if you had to jump in and out at any point, you could pick back up with whichever pace fit best.

The tricky part about learning on your own, at least for me, is the lack of dates to have to stick to and the lack of anything prodding me to put down the novel, turn off the CSI rerun, etc. and do some serious reading or lecture-watching. So you want enough flexibility that you don't get overwhelmed, but not so much that you get... underwhelmed.

Thoughts?
