Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I read and replied to the assignments turned in before noon on Saturday; I'll finish the Saturday assignments and start on the Sunday assignments today! You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
Project Favorites! I've prepared the list of project favorites: thanks to everybody for their nominations! You can see the list here: Project Favorites. I hope you will enjoy exploring the list; you might even find some projects you have not looked at so far this semester. If you would like to vote for your favorites, you'll find a ballot at D2L in the Week 14 area.
OU Create. If you are interested in seeing some other online projects from other classes at OU, take a look at OU Create: OU Creaties. You can find out more about OU Create and getting your own domain here: Getting Started with OU Create.
Project Feedback. The Project commenting assignments for BOTH Week 14 AND Week 15 are available now. There's no need to wait, so if you need those points to finish up the class, both weeks are ready to go!
