Instructor Email Update: 5.1.17

Jim Lloyd, the SOC 949 online instructor, has changed his email address. He is now using the following: lloydbhs@gmail.com

Module 8 Update: 2.22.18

Change is the only constant on the web. In the past few years, several of the major search sites have lost funding and disappeared, some have changed their name and reorganized and/or some have been bought out and absorbed by their competitors.

Module 8 of the course has been updated to reflect the current state of online search tools. You may notice some discrepencies if you are using an older version of the logbook. You can edit your logbook to reflect the current listings on the course website.

Course Website Update: 2.22.18

All of the links on the course website have been checked. Missing links were adjusted and/or removed. You may need to reload/refresh the page to see the recent changes.

Web Discussion Board Update: 2.22.18

The SOC 949 Web Discussion Board is no longer in use. You will send all course correspondence directly to Jim Lloyd, SOC 949 online instructor.

Course and Website Updates: 5.8.11

Effective immediately, the University is recommending at all course participants "go green" and utilize a digital logbook and the online Submit Grade Form option on the University website upon completion of the course. Utilizing this option will expedite grade processing.

If you registered for the course prior to May 2011, you will still have the option of submitting the hard-copy logbook and the hard-copy triplicate grade form that was included in your course materials packet.

Contact Bob Jost, instructional support person, if you have any questions: bobjost@gmail.com or leave voicemail at 559.495.1919

The Course Support Documents section of the SOC 949 website was updated to reflect these changes. Module 8 was updated to reflect recent changes to online search tools.

Junk Mail Filtering

Our web hosting and e-mail service provider recently added a new junk mail filtering system to our accounts. While this has dramatically reduced the volume of junk mail that has been appearing in our inbox, we can't help but wonder if perhaps some legitimate e-mail might also be incorrectly identified as junk mail and deleted before it reaches us.

As those of you who have been working with us realize, we routinely respond to incoming mail within 48 hours (usually much quicker...). If you have not received a response to messages that you have sent within 48 hours, please contact Bob at:


with a CC to:


or call to 559.495.1919 and leave a voicemail message

It is strongly suggested that you use the exact message titles indicated in the assignment prompts. Junk mail filters often set to delete messages sent without a message title or with a generic message title (Hi, Hey, Hello, Re: Fwd: etc.) It is also most helpful if you include your name somewhere in the body of the e-mail message, especially if your e-mail address does not include elements of your name.
