SPRING IMMERSION 2013 TECHNOLOGY

INFORMATION & HELP

 

A critical goal in the Spring Immersion Program is that students learn confidentiality management with respect to the exchange of documents. This skill requires the awareness of and the use of basic features of technology. Please follow all steps and procedures carefully and accurately.

 

FACULTY - STEPS TO FOLLOW

 

a. Use the Outlook 2010 or 2011 Client on your computer (OR use the Outlook Client through the Stable.)

 

 

b. Update Word to 2010 (PCs) or 2011 (Macs). This software is free for you via the law/technology page under software downloads.

 

 

c. Create inbox rules to organize Immersion documents that come to you. The rule should cause inbound messages with a student pair number in the SUBJECT LINE to route to that specific folder. For example, if you are the instructor for Section 5, you would first create an "Immersion" folder within your Inbox.* Then you would create six sub-folders named as follows:

5a,5b,5c,5d,5e, and 5f:

* To create your folders and your Inbox Rule:

1] Select "Inbox" with a single click, then Right-Click "Inbox" and click "New Folder." You may name the folder "Immersion."

2] Create sub-folders in a similar manner by selecting "Immersion" with a single click, then Right-Click "Immersion" and click "New Folder." Name the first one with your section number and the letter "a" and repeat this step until all pairs in your section have their own sub-folder under "Immersion."

3] Next, create a rule that provides that anytime one of those student pair numbers is in the SUBJECT LINE of an inbound email, that message will be routed to the corresponding folder.

d. Refer to the Document Exchange Criteria for information on how the students will be instructed to exchange materials. As an instructor, you should receive a redlined version of the students' draft compared to a prior draft (or the original template) each time a student pair emails you a document. It is recommended that you make comments electronically and return.

The students have been instructed to SCRUB the document and remove any comments (and other metadata) prior to exchanging documents with the other side.
