CONNECT LOGOHola estudiantes,

If you are using the Connect online platform for the first time (SPAN 1441 students, transfer students, and SPAN 2314 students who need to purchase Connect access for the Punto y aparte textbook now used in that level), please note the following:

The instruction files on this blog state that there is a FREE TRIAL for 3 weeks if students need to use it. This has just changed. It is now called COURTESY ACCESS and the period of free access has changed to 2 weeks.

Please contact your instructor if you have any questions.
