Course Attribute
For Gina - If seems ok with Cheryl to change this at this point of NASAD accreditation, the only other name thought I have at this time is:

Concept Lab

gharris (Sun, 27 Sep 2015 16:05:35 GMT): Rollback: Syllabus need required class schedule.
gharris (Tue, 08 Mar 2016 21:36:15 GMT): Rollback: Can we find a more accessible course title? We need to speak to the innocent reader, i.e., a reasonably well educated individual should be able to understand what the course is about just by reading the title.
echacko (Mon, 28 Mar 2016 15:58:51 GMT): I am approving, but agree with Gina that to the layperson, the title of the course probably does not mean much. Gina and Cheryl, please change to Concept Lab if you think appropriate.
