Wednesday, December 10

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 15 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 14 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook stack. I've still got a few Storybook assignments in the stack, which I hope to finish on Wednesday morning. You can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

Tips for next semester's students. (repeat announcement - and thanks to everybody who already left a comment - I think this will be REALLY helpful next semester!) I've created a simple blog - Online Course Lady - where you can leave a comment at the blog (including anonymous comments. if you prefer). The idea is that you can share some tips and tricks with next semester's students. So, think about what you WISH you had known in starting out the semester, so that the students in Spring can benefit from your experience! I'll share this blog with them at the start of the next semester... and thanks in advance for your input there!
