This should give everyone access to Executrain (just follow the new user instructions).  If you are still having problems please contact me.  As a reminder you are responsible for the first two reading articles and the two Executrain tutorials. 

Nicenet Instructions:
To turn in your Article papers please use Nicenet.

Go to and create an account for yourself.

Go to Join a class and use ZZ0788ZEZ9 as your class code. Verify that this is the correct course.

In Nicenet you will find a syllabus under the documents page. Under the correct assignment click on submit and you will see a screen to turn in your paper. Here is where it gets tricky, so pay attention:

You must copy and paste your document in HTML format so follow these steps:

  1. Open your original document, go to Save As and select a web page.

  2. Give your document a name and save it, then open the document as a webpage.

  3. Once it is open go to View and select HTML Source Code. (Your screen will turn into a lot of gibberish)

  4. Then Select All text and copy.

  5. Then go to the Nicenet page and paste your source code in the box given. This will post your document.

*All documents are due by classtime and Nicenet will timestamp each post. If you have problems let me know.
