This is the gateway page for the 200-level Honors Program course, “J.R.R. Tolkien's Legacy,” taught by Dr. Leslie
Donovan and Senior Teacher Megan Abrahamson at the University of New Mexico in
Albuquerque, NM, USA. From this gateway page, students can access various web
locations and resources for the class. To access any of the class resources described
below, click the buttons on the left of this window.
Website — For course information, sharing and
collaborating on graded assignments. This is a private website; only class
members may access it via an invitation to share the Google site.
For invited class members to access this site:
Click on the link to the left which says “Website.” This will take you to a portal page where you must sign in. From here, you will have 1 of 3 options:
- If you have a Google UNM account (you’ll know if you have one of these) you will sign in as normal (and you may be prompted to sign in with your Google account info as well as your UNM account info).
- If you have a Google account already (Gmail, through a previous blog, even Youtube is now connected to Google) you will need to select the “Don’t have an account at unm.edu? Sign in with a different account” link at the bottom of the sign in box. Then you enter your email address (the one you use for your Google account) after which it will let you log on via your Google account.
- If you have never used Google before, you will be able to sign up through your email address. Select “Don’t have an account at unm.edu? Sign in with a different account” link at the bottom of the sign in box, enter the email you would like to use, and from there, follow the link which says “Don’t have a Google Account? Create an account now.” Once you have set up this account, use the instructions from #2, above.
If this doesn’t work, please talk to us ASAP.
