Click on the name of a section below to display the contents. The settings have changed in this course to show one section per page in an effort to make it easier to navigate.
"Books" allow you to share a great deal of information in one link. Basically, they are a series of pages that you can provide text in and embed files or videos. This is an example of how you can use a book to share information about a term project.
The chat module allows participants to have a real-time synchronous discussion via the web.
