N O T E S  (a few protocols):
Posting to the blog: post regularly (2-3 per week/about 15 for the course); anything relevant to design and the course focus; embed links; comment freely; tag all posts; write a short note to describe post

Reading discussion leaders: summarize texts/media; identify themes, important names, terms, etc., and most importantly devise a way to engage the class for 10-15 mins. Questions, games, demonstrations – go beyond Powerpoint…

File naming: label your work clearly and logically – yourname.project.details.extension
