How to Login to Our Class Web Forum on SyllaBase


Using Syllabase:  We will use the web forum and other tools provided by SyllaBase for posting responses to readings and discussions from class, in addition to drafts of some writing assignments.  We will also designate one of the forums as a place for an ongoing discussion for concerns, questions and feedback you have about the course.  Responses to questions/writing assignments on the forum will count as part of your homework grade.
