Tip: Experience the Cycle of Collaboration

The power of the wiki occurs when you experience 'the accelerated cycle of collaboration'. Communicate directly on the wiki!!

  • Read the Notes on the Course Feedback page
  • Post a comment (by clicking "edit") on the Course Feedback page, about your motivations and hopes in taking this course.
    • When someone responds to your message on the wiki, you will be automatically notified, if you have modified your WE Account setting properly.
