Clarifying policy for posting to course forums

Adrian asked for clarification about posting to the discussion forum.

  • Noon, day before class - discussion leaders write one or more initial forum posts to start the discussion.
  • Midnight, day before class - ALL students post at least once, generally responding to the discussion leaders' posts or an existing post. But feel free to start a new thread if you have something new to say. 

Note other students in the class don't need to wait until the discussion leaders have  posted, but can post early.  In addition, students in the class can start a thread, rather than responding to another's post.
