December’s subject is Collaboration & Assessment
I Got Confused Reading It (READ THIS ARTICLE)
Watch the video and read the PDF, the video is short this month, so there is an article as well. We will look at a variety of tools to assist in online collaboration. Just the video and article are due before class. And, no, you may not use this article as your blog post article. Nice try, though.
(You may, however, use one of these articles, if you wish. You’re welcome.)
