echacko (Tue, 22 Mar 2016 17:59:27 GMT): 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.
gharris (Fri, 06 Jan 2017 15:21:41 GMT): 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.
