Grades will be posted on Blackboard. We will also be using Blackboard for the class discussion board, and also for instructor to class emails so make sure you have access to whatever email address the Univesity has on record for you. All questions you have regarding material in class or assignments should be posted to the discussion board which you should all check regularly. Generaly, I will only respond to these questions on the discussion board rather than individually by email, but you may email me to draw my attention to a particular thread if it is not getting resolved.
