I am building all of our course stuff for next year. If you would like to help (and earn a grade increase) let me know. Please remember I'm still working on stuff - this site is under construction. Bmackenty (talk) 09:57, 6 May 2016 (CEST)

News for April 2016[edit]

Welcome to our new classroom website. I am still moving stuff from moodle to here. We are learning about and applying our knowledge about design. I have gotten some feedback that some of you think this is "boring but important". I agree. Please remember what I told you: 1 hour of good design saves you hundreds of hours fixing problems later.
