Communication via Grades will be done via Blackboard’s Grade Center:

Our class’s grade book will be on Blackboard. You should check your grades regularly under My grades. Your midterm grade will also be posted on Blackboard. This semester, per the college’s academic calendar, midterm grades must be posted by October 28th. If you have any questions about any of your grades. please email me.

There will be feedback given on Blackboard for your projects also when projects are in draft form before a grade is provided. Comments will also be provided on the project rubrics that can be found in the Projects section of this site.
