  1. Please send me a message in Canvas inbox (you can access the course still through the 'completed courses' link) so I can send it to you. I cannot send it without a message in Canvas. Thanks, Richard
  2. By now everyone should have received their Certificates. If you still haven't received your Certificate, email me directly through the Canvas course inbox messaging system. You can still access the course messaging system by finding Mad About Musicals in your Completed course list at Canvas.net. Once you send me a message, I will send out your Certificate as soon as possible upon receipt of request. Thanks to everyone who completed the course! Best, Richard
  3. Hi Everyone: The Certificates will go out next week, starting on July 16, and will take all week to send out the Certificates to everyone. Below is the information on Certificates from the Canvas.net site (it was the last module published in the course): 1. Who will get a Certificate of Completion? In order to earn the Certificate of Completion, you must receive a score of 70% or higher on all four weekly quizzes. The Weekly Quizzes are the quizzes that appear in the Saturday modules and are worth 100 points each. Please note: We are only using the Weekly Quizzes for de
  4. I believe this link should still work if you still want to buy a T-shirt: https://shop.tcm.com/tcm-presents-mad-about-musicals-tee/762184195308
  5. I just checked. I believe other sizes are available. It defaults to small, but if you click other sizes, it should add that size to your checkout cart. Hope this helps.
  6. It's been fixed. Thanks for the heads up. You may retake Quiz 4 as many times as you like.
  7. HI MGM Fan, Those instructions are not up yet. They are coming tomorrow on the last day of the course with new content. And I will fix those completion buttons. Thanks, Richard
  8. That module isn't open yet. I don't send out the instructions till this Saturday. It will continue to show as blank until we are ready to start awarding Certificates. Thanks!
  9. Thanks for catching this! Both misspellings have been now been fixed! Hope everyone is enjoying the games!
  10. I just checked. I believe all sizes of the T-Shirt are still available. I know during Hitchcock we sold out of most sizes by the end of the course, but I still think there is time to get your preferred size. If you select the size you want, then add it to the cart. If it is in stock, it will be loaded into your cart. Thanks!
  11. Yes, in technicolor and 70mm Todd AO. The correction has been made in the podcast. Thanks!
  12. The discount code can be found in the Start Here Modules at the top of the modules list - it is listed as "Special TCM Announcement from Shop TCM" - it's an excellent discount. I can't publish it here because it is only for enrolled students in the course. The exact page is here: https://learn.canvas.net/courses/2206/pages/0-dot-7-special-tcm-announcements-from-shop-tcm?module_item_id=218022 And yes, hurry to use the discount code, because it expires on 6/30.
  13. Yes, you can just watch, you do not have to turn on your webcam to see the rest of the Shindig live. You only need your webcam on if you want to interact with other students or with the moderators (Dr. Ament and myself)
  14. Quiz 4 only covers the last week of the course (1960s and Beyond) - there is no cumulative test in the course.
  15. No special equipment needed! You only need a webcam, no microphone. There is not even a program to download. I like Shindig because it all works inside your regular browser. See you on Friday! Richard
  16. Yes, please ignore the first "blank" email - that was sent in error. You can delete that one. The actual announcement is a list of the movie theaters showing WEST SIDE STORY this Wednesday, and that seems like relevant information for this community of musicals lover. Thanks! Richard
  17. Hi BlueMoods: Vanessa Ament and I are hosting a live video chat with any students who want to spend an hour on Friday chatting about the course content. It is completely optional but should be fun. We call it the World's Study Hall, because there is no limit to how many students can attend. We are calling it a "study hall" a bit tongue in cheek - it's really just a large-scale gathering of the students in thisc course and a great chance to live discuss musicals and the course material. You do not need to put in a title or organization - those fields are optional. Hope
  18. Try this direct link to the voting page: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScYEbKU_wdwirFG2oVPzZ-N967OYRofMKJFc8IyQEQtHvS-BA/viewform?usp=sf_link Hope this helps! Richard
  19. Quiz #3 now has the proper setting for taking it multiple times. FYI: Hope everyone enjoys this week's badge! It's one of my favorites - If you pass the quiz, and you can earn this:
  20. What a wonderful reflection on the film! Wish the MOOC had extra credit, because you would have gotten it today for this post! Best, Prof. Edwards
  21. Mise-en-scene is not tied to symbolism, but mise-en-scene can be designed to deliver symbolic meanings in a film. The mise-en-scene is simply the literal "things" that are put and arranged in front of a film camera. Any element of the mise-en-scene (from the decor to the makeup) can be "elevated" to mean something more than its literal meaning. A staircase might just be a staircase, or it might be used by the storytellers to convey the idea that the character on screen is "descending into the underworld" to give one example. But there is nothing necessarily symbolic about a mise
  22. I think this might be the key! I've been confused for a while why I am hearing some are having problems and some are not. Each question in A QUIZ IS BORN is auto loaded, after you answer, don't hit any key - if you hit the next button or if you try to get to the next question, it won't work. Thanks Marianne! I think that will help many who want to play it.
  23. Thank you! Dr. Ament and I can't always respond to every post, so advice like this from CynthiaV is amazing! I couldn't have said it better myself! This is what the course is about. It really is about the community that the course brings together and an open forum to discuss all the great things about the musicals that we all love! There is no right or wrong way to do this course - it is designed to be flexible, it is designed to cover a lot of material in a short period of time, it is meant to stimulate your love of the movies!! But a special thank you for every student like Cynthia
