We are done broadcasting for the Fall semester, but please join us in for our Beginning Ojibwe II classes this spring. We start broadcasting again February 1, 2022. Our Beginning Ojibwe II classes will take place: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00am-10:50am central time, on Zoom, and anyone is welcome to join us. Our students would love see you, so please turn your cameras on, but we ask that you keep your mics muted until called upon (the background noise is very loud for our classroom speakers): A link will be posted here before Feb 1st.

If you are having trouble viewing the class recording files (from You-Tube and Zoom), try downloading them. They often work better that way :-)
The instructional videos were created with H5P (www.h5p.com) so, although they are downloadable, they will not be playable without an internet connection.
