is a private correspondence between the student and instructor. By using the web page, the entire class has an opportunity to learn from the questions submitted.
The use of the web page does not preclude personal interaction between any of you and the course instructors. All course instructors have regular office hours, and you are all encouraged to make use of these hours. Alternate meeting times can be arranged by appointment. Additionally, you can contact Drs. Freeman and Yang by e-mail or telephone. The e-mail address and phone number for the instructors are given on the first page of this syllabus.
To receive copies of the submitted questions and the answers to the questions, you must submit your e-mail address. To submit your e-mail address, go to our home page (http://www.chm.uri.edu/courses/?chm1921&1) and click on “Subscribe to the CHM 192 list.” On the resulting form, enter your e-mail address, click on the small “subscribe” button and then click on the submit button. You can also use this form to unsubscribe from the list in case you drop CHM 192.
Any student in CHM 192 can submit questions and comments to the instructors. Sub- mission of such comments or questions must be made using the WWW home page for this course. The address (URL) of our home page is http://www.chm.uri.edu/courses/?chm192&1 . To submit a question to the list, you must click on the highlighted text that says “submit a question to the CHM 192 list.” As an example of how to use the list, suppose a student in our class, Ms. Benzene Ring, wonders, “What is the relation between pH and pOH?” (If you don’t know what this means, don’t worry. You will understand the question early in the semester). To obtain an answer to her question, Ms. Ring links her web browser (e.g. Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Internet Explorer) to http://www.chm.uri.edu/courses/?chm192&1, and she then clicks on the text linking her to the page for questions (i.e. the highlighted text that says “submit a question to the CHM 192 list”). Ms. Ring then enters her e-mail address in the appropriate box (this is optional) and specifies whether she wants her question to be answered to the entire CHM 192 class or to her alone. Ms. Ring then types in the large box What is the relation between pH and pOH? Ms. Ring then clicks the “send” button. Ms. Ring’s question is received by the instruc- tors. One of the instructors then sends an e-mail message to the whole list that might be

Now Ms. Ring and the entire class have an answer to her question.
If the answer to the question can be sent to the entire list, the answer will not indicate who asked the question. If Ms Ring wants to ask the question with full anonymity so that even the course instructors have no idea who asked the question, the e-mail
