Hi everyone,

It’s time to start actively monitoring the development of your group websites. Please choose one representative from you group who will send me an email to which I will reply with our login information. It will be very nice if you could register us (two professors and two teaching assistants) as administrators at each of your five group projects.

Thank you very much and looking forward to your five emails before 15:00 on Thursday, April 3, 2008.
