I like the way that this is organized as it seems very logical to follow.

Web Links-there were many important web links mentioned in the text one that jumped out at me was the Assignments link. As this I think is where we should post our classroom assignments unless otherwise districted in the syllabus. Icons- in the text this seems like how we will get our immediate feed back from the instructor on our posts. The dreaded Red U which would indicate a unsubstantive post; hopefully I don’t see to often. Or the Green S which would indicate a substantive post. |Exercise 2: OLS Functionality Activity |
