Assignments, including extension activities, should be submitted by e-mail. Except for some private information requested in Assignment 1 (which can be sent directly to the instructor), assignments should generally be sent to the entire class by sending them to the class mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org. If for any reason you feel that a particular assignment contains personal information that you would rather not share with the entire class, you may send an assignment directly to the instructor's e-mail box (email@example.com) instead. However, I hope that most assignments will be sent to the class mailing list and will generate discussion.
Feel free to respond to each other's mailings and to comment on people's observations as they relate to your own. Much of the communication in this class will be by e-mail, and it is my hope that a sense of Virtual Community will be established among class members, as well as of Real Community.
