  1. This is great Jenny! I love the new organization and the recent postings...thanks and I look forward to checking in during the fall. Also really like the suggestions about wrapping up the semester.well. Great picture of you as well!

  2. I'm glad you like the changes, Christine! And thanks for the heads-up about the access issues. I don't understand what the problem is but will check back with our tech guru to see if we can figure this out...

  3. I think we have sorted out the issue! If anyone is still having problems seeing the images here, please post a comment or drop me an email: jmichael@academyart.edu. Thanks!

  4. Nice, visual approach here! I love the ability to get the headlines or dig deeper. Constantly evolving. (smile)

  5. Nice work on the revised Layout and design Jenny. It's great to have immediate access for all of the newest content. With such a wealth of information keeping it organized makes all the difference, you're amazing!

  6. I love this! Really great visuals and wonderful information! 

  7. Jenny, thank you for the suggestions about inviting student feedback.  I have always done this but from a narrower perspective.  Just putting it out there and asking directly, " How can I do better?" is great!  In the interest of full disclosure, I used your questions and created a new topic that will be open for Modules 14 and 15.

    1. I will be interested to know how that works for you, Ellie!

  8. I too appreciate the idea of inviting student feedback. I know they grade us in their own way and understanding their perceptions has to help one teach better. I wish I had done that directly in my classes last semester on site. Instead, I just tried to wheedle it out of them....

  9. I love all this information because help me to understand what to expect from the instructors! Such a great resource!
    Thank you Jennifer!

  10. Hello everyone, I am just playing around with the new interface to get familiar with it.

    Unfortunately the Markup window stays blank and nothing happens with the page, the only way is to click back to the previous page. I am on a Mac using Safari. Does anyone else got the same problem? Can you offer solution or suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Henning

  11. Hello just getting started here but I see the 24 hour support will help me sleep well
