In the five minutes it took to write that last post, this appeared in my inbox:
Dear Professer ,
Hello, my name is [name], i am a student of "introduction to oceans' of session D.
I added this course last friday, so I missed the fisrt three lectures.
And i am now wondering if i can join a group of others because i don't have a group.
Also, I have read the PDFs of lecture1&2, but i can not find the lecture3 in Bspace,
I think i need to read it before the next lecture, but i don't know how to get it.
Thanks so much,
Clearly, I need to have a word with the admissions office.
Maybe more than one word.
Did I mention my class was already standing room only? There are 107 seats, every single one full, and students sitting in the aisles.
