Time to sign up for the Mounce-a group

Postby Bert » Sat Sep 03, 2005 11:38 pm

The thread dealing with the Basics of Biblical Greek study group was basically a poll to gauge interest.
Now it is time to sign up.
William Annis, the groups co-ordinator, has prepared an information page that you can use to sign up:
http://textkit.com/mailman/listinfo/mou ... extkit.com
Because there was considerable interest, some may have to sit on the backbenches as lurkers.
When someone drops out, one will be hauled from there to be an active participant.
Those who sign up after the group is full will have to opportunity to become active members in the order that they sign up. (Priority is given to those who have already indicated their interest in the poll.

In due time you will be given information regarding the schedule and the way to 'hand in' assignments etc.
We hope to start October 16. That should give lots of time to purchase the books where needed. (And it will give Geoff time to unpack after his move.
Talk to you later.

I'm a little puzzled by the cap. Is it simply a matter of having enough folks to grade/evaluate the assignments?

How does it work?

Postby Sheila » Sat Sep 17, 2005 2:23 pm

Another group with which I'm familiar (greekstudy) would post a collation of everyone's work and we would all check our work by comparing our work to that of others.


Am I right in thinking that this group would have the work actually checked by someone and that is why the group size is limited?

Thanks,
Sheila

Yes that's right.
Having 10-12 students will take a fair bit of time, especially after we get a bit farther into the book.

Message failure; Corrections; Secret Group?

Postby rustymason » Fri Nov 18, 2005 5:03 pm

I am trying to post a message to our mounce-a study group, but keep getting this email back:

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

Mounce-a@textkit.com
local delivery failed
-------------------------------------------------
Hello from Houston!

Who is correcting our work and what do the green highlights mean?

Also, is this email list the only way we are conversing with one another in this study group? Am I missing posts on another board?

Thank you.

Nope, the mailing list is it, and something has gone wrong with it. I'll need to dig. More info when I have it...

Geoff does some and I do some.
If you put the curser over the highlighted area, a tooltip will pop up.

Mounce-a appears to be accepting mail correctly again.
