First Night of the Spring Semester

Everything went well.  I did find to my surprise that a BBC video about human settlement of the New World did not hold their attention as well as my lecture.  Probably using shorter video segments would be a better strategy.  These are almost entirely students who work during the daytime although most are traditional age students, so I guess the welfare state student strategy of Obama has not worked as expected.  Only one student seemed in danger of falling asleep.  Perhaps  a long day.  I remember a 6:00 to 10:00 High Middle Ages class like that.
