Do I have to attend all the classes if I am registering to take the class for free, either in-person on campus or streaming online?
No. If you are attending the classes for free, either in-person or streaming online, you can attend as many or as few as like. However, we ask that you do register in advance on the following page: Registration
Where are the classes going to be if I am attending the course in-person on the CBU campus?
If you plan to attend the lectures in-person on the CBU campus, all the lectures will be held in the Royal Bank Lecture Theatre (CE-258). This is located in the Student, Culture and Heritage Centre and can be found just off the Great Hall.
We do ask that if you plan to attend the lectures in-person that you please register online by following this link: Registration. This way we can ensure that if there are any changes in room or cancellations that you will receive an email notification of those changes. We can also share resources and materials as they become available.
How do I access the classes online?
If you plan to view the classes during the live streaming, you can do so here: BellAliant TV1
You can also find the live-streaming options directly on the CBU.ca homepage, and all those registered for the course will receive a weekly update email that will always include the link.
If I wanted to view the classes but missed the live streaming, am I still able to access a recording to watch at a later date or when it’s convenient for me?
Yes, thanks to Bell Aliant, all of the classes will be recorded and archived directly after the class finishes, to ensure that everyone has access to the videos at any time, from anywhere. Follow the same BellAliant TV1 link for the livestream, but click on the Archive tab. This will take you directly to the archived videos.
If I am attending the class for free, either in-person or through live streaming, am I able to get the required readings?
Unfortunately, due to copyright laws, not all readings will be available to you unless you are a paid student of CBU. However, many of the readings and resources selected for this course are available online for free or through Open Access, and will be available. We will also provide a list of readings on our website with the sourced information in the case that you want to try and procure them on your own.
Is there a hashtag, if I am looking to participate in a live chat on social media?
Yes, there is a hashtag to participate through social media. The hashtag is #taliaqCBU and we encourage everyone to join the conversation in a respectful manner. Questions from social media may also be addressed during the classes.
If I registered online to participate in the course for free, do I need to do any readings or assignments?
No, you do not. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy this free learning experience. You may wish, however, to follow along with some of the great readings and resources available for this class, by accessing the COURSE OUTLINE. But it is not required.
If I registered online to participate in the course for free, does it mean that I am a CBU student?
