Self-paced course until February 2nd, at which time there will be a weekly unit due, this involves discussion boards and quizzes. Blackboard @ Gaston

This course meets optionally on Tuesdays and Thursdays for like half an hour or so. Most of the assignments will be given and submitted online, utilizing Flickr (just like Digital Photo @ UNC). All assignments will be photographs, including final exam. Flickr @ Gaston
This course is mostly reading. It is fully online and has stuff due about once every two weeks. Blackboard @ Gaston
Self-paced with a few deadlines. There is a very small set of assignments, which makes this course very much like the first one. Blackboard @ CPCC
