I am looking to start a study group. I am not seeing a lot of activity here. I feel it might be a disconnection to the material. I have searched out many other sources and would like to find someone to exchange Papers with on this class for peer grading..

Hi Susan,

I hope some folks come around and join in! Look for a study groups feature in the ePortfolio in the next month or two — we need to work out some kinks before it’s ready for use.

I’m interested in joining a study group. I’ve just begun with HIST101 and I would like to complete all History courses.
I’m looking for some videos to gain a better understanding of the Neolithic Age, and more literature as well.
I understand the Neolithic Age is considered the last “part” of the Stone Age.

Hi Norma!

If you haven’t already, perhaps you’d like to create a profile over at our ePortfolio (eportfolio.saylor.org)? You can send a message to Susan there.

You can post work samples to share there. I don’t have a firm timeline yet for our study groups, but they ARE coming — I hope in August, but possibly in September. If you can’t wait, there are a bunch of additional options for collaboration: Google Groups, a group blog (you can make the blog private/sign-in only and invite other administrators), and…well, a bunch more.

As for videos, I did a little searching to try to find something great, and I didn’t come up with a whole lot, but searching for “neolithic at Vimeo and YouTube definitely bring up some results; http://www.learner.org has a few promising items, and finally PBS online has a bunch of great free videos. Try this link out to start: http://www.pbs.org/topics/history/prehistoric

Hope that helps…if I happen to see something I’ll be sure to let you know, and feel free to shoot me a message if you find something!

Hello.. I am not sure how the messaging works on here.. good at history. Not so good at computers. I will post here the videos I found on Youtube .I found quite a few for the first 2 units. I have done facebook pages for study groups also. That works really well if anyone is interested I can start one, and link it here until Saylor has the option. (do not want to step on toes here.)

Hey Susan! That would be great! (regarding the facebook group). I also found some interesting videos on youtube, and maybe we can exchange information as well. I’ve just started Unit 1, and I’m reading the Outline of Work History, and it’s complicated (specially because it mentions blood types and the geological eras). But I totally agree with the facebook group :)

Norma & Susan — feel free to go for the Facebook group! You won’t be stepping on any toes…we want you to get the most out of this in the way that seems best to you (and this would be true even if we rolled out a study group feature tomorrow).

And we’d love for you to link to the group here, too!
