Part of your grade will be based on participation. In addition to completing all of the assignments and activities, you much post at least once a week (Week = Sun - Sat, for a total of 5 times) in the Updates link in the Discussion Forum. This is an area where I will post updates so it is important that you go there regularly to see what has been posted. You can post questions, responses to info I may ask you for, info that you have found to be useful and you want to share with the group, or you can go in and simply post "I'm still here and doing ok," if you can't think of anything else to post. This will help us connect as a group, and it will help me gauge how you are doing as we progress through the semester. And since summer sessions go really, fast, this is extra important.
