Rollback: The course description is too lengthy. It should be no longer than 3-5 sentences and written in the present tense. Also, I could not open the syllabus file. Why is the enrolment for this course capped at 16? That is too low for a lecture, but might be okay for a seminar.

Rollback: The syllabus must have a week-by-week schedule of topics to be covered. At present, the syllabus includes only a list of required readings. Please resubmit with an updated syllabus.
