During the first week of the course, students will watch one entire video, "Asiatic Migration into the Americas" and portions of two others, "NOVA: The Great Human Odyssey," and "America Before Columbus", and then complete a 25-question online exam. These videos can be accessed to the right and below. To view them, click on the play button in the center of each video. To view full-screen, click on the little open-sided box icon to the right of the word "YouTube," after the video begins playing (the words "Full Screen" should appear just above the box when you put your mouse over it). If you cannot hear anything, make sure the sound is not muted on the video.
