This is the best place to ask questions about the course, whether curricular or administrative. You will get faster answers here from staff and peers than through email.

Here are some tips:

  • Search before you post,
  • Heart questions and answers you find useful,
  • Answer questions you feel confident answering,
  • Share interesting course related content with staff and peers.

All the best this semester!
