After reviewing the course policies, please go to the general discussion board and post a response under the Course Policies.  I will be happy to respond to all of your questions or concerns.  Also, if you can help a classmate, please feel free to respond to them as well.  I encourage you to share your ideas, comments, and concerns and help each other whenever you can.
