If you have already purchased your user license and it is activated

1. Go to the eLearning login page (

the WMU Computer Help Desk)
3. Click on the "American Music" (MUSIC 3500) link.
4. Click on the "Content" or "Assessment" links and follow instructions.


- As a courtesy, open links to the first assigned reading of the online textbook is provided on the MUS3500 Course Schedule (this allows you a week to get a user license without getting behind on the assigned reading).


- To access the remaining online textbook readings and all of the e-Workbook quizzes, you will need to have a User License purchased and activated.


- To read the textbook chapters, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer/browser--click here to get the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.


- Each of the e-Workbook quizzes will be opened up at an appropriate time over the course of the semester (see the "Course Schedule" link for details). Once a quiz is opened, it will stay opened until the due date on the course schedule. These quiz assessments are NOT timed, but you can only submit a quiz once for grading.





(If you added the class late, your name may not be in the WMU eLearning database yet) 


- Do not use Google Chrome to do these online assignments--it is not compatible with WMU E-Learning and causes many unpredictable problems.



- I will reset any assignment that has locked up AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY INCORRECT ANSWERS in that assignment.
