A note about online learning:
Some of the most significant learning in an online course occurs when students share their work with each other and give feedback on fellow student's ideas. We have incorporated a Discussion Forum into the course to facilitate this sharing. Students who are meeting face-to-face are also invited to post their assignments on the Discussion Forum so that the distance students can also benefit from your ideas and experience.

If you have a chart or special formatting and you wish to retain the formatting, you can click on Post a new message in this thread and then on Advanced. You will see that you can then post HTML documents (just do "Save as HTML" from within Word or Word Perfect). You can also add attachments from the Advanced window.

If at any time the Discussion Forum is down, please email your assignments to satkin@southwestern.cc.or.us
