The title and course description were modified as requested.
dullman (Tue, 20 Jan 2015 20:59:56 GMT): Rollback: Can we get a more descriptive course title? The current one is like a cute subtitle but begs an assortment of questions. Also, the word "material" in the course description is unclear. To what does it refer?
dullman (Tue, 27 Jan 2015 20:06:48 GMT): Rollback: Please address my comments.
dullman (Thu, 05 Feb 2015 23:53:05 GMT): Rollback: Third try, this time back to Caitlin.
