gharris (Sun, 05 Feb 2017 23:35:05 GMT): Rollback: This is being proposed with the suffix "I," but there isn't a companion "II" in the workflow. Please submit together if there are multiple parts, or remove "I" if there are not.
cbeil (Sun, 05 Mar 2017 01:58:02 GMT): Rollback: The Statement about independent learning on the syllabus needs to be revised. THe course meets for 2 hours a week, not 2.5 hours, Students should be expected to spend a minimum of 7 hours per week of independent learning to make up for the shorter time of direct instruction. See policy on assignment of credit hour at: --under policies. Look at sample 2.
