For Tomorrow

Complete as much of your course website as you can. If you are having trouble figuring out how to post or format certain pages, posts, or widgets, save the content in Word or on paper. But try to have a  demo-version of your course to show and talk about as part of our arcade tomorrow.

Email me the URL for your site before 10:00 tomorrow. I’ll post a list of links to your courses to this site.
