Dawson's Web Course Philosophy

When I started building web pages for my courses, I decided to try to get students into the spirit of the enterprise with the first week of lectures. These lectures introduced students to my conception of the "cybercourse", based on an increasingly egalitarian environment of information flow. The lecture slides are copied from Week 1 of PSYCO 560, which was my first attempt at this kind of course delivery.
