And using the First Amendment in Your Life

To use the myicourse site, go to https://universityoflife.myicourse.com/user/register to register free for access to the First Amendment course material. Once your registration goes through (I think it's pretty quick), click on "Course Catalog" in the navigation menu on the left, then "enroll"in the First Amendment Multicourse Module.

Once you do, you'll see four courses -- try the pretest together, for fun, to see what you know already. Then the rest of the course material will become available to you. Don't worry about the "1000 hours" reference you'll see. It's just an arbitrary (large) number to keep the final assessment off line. And we're using "assessment" in the loosest sense of the word, here.

All of this is to be enjoyed at whatever level you'd like to enjoy it and, hopefully, to learn from it.
