Online Course Meeting Instructions: We’ll be meeting in Google Plus’s Hangout meeting application. Log into Google Plus. Go to Shelley’s profile. Add the beginnings of the ENGL665 circle I have posted. Add Shelley to that Circle. I will be posting an invitation to a “Hangout” through the circle (as you all add me). (If for some reason you are not getting invited to the hangout, email me your Google Plus Profile URL. The button with the round circle and a person’s profile will take you to your profile page.)
