Completing Site Reviews

By the end of this week you should be to the end of the online tutorial. Now it can be said - the idea here was two-fold:

I'd like us now to reflect on what was learned. Use your postings this week to talk about what you learned by going into the online environments you studied. What caught your eye that really worked on the sites; what needed improvement.

Post your work to the Online Materials forum in Blackboard, then view and comment on other's work. The goal here is to put into practice the principles from the above readings.
