This page is a "blog roll" of sorts. It is a place for Team members to post helpful hints to each other and to announce system-wide changes and up-coming events.

Groups and Facilitators

Hello 481ers,

Out of the class and into the fire...

Here are the groups, listed under your particular liason and resource person. We 3 will be communicating with our specific groups, Brenda and Ken, and each other in order to try to keep the site looking cohesive. We'll also be trying to help with admin details and general questions, ensuring there isn't a lot of overlap and that most people are on the same page. Good luck with the projects!!

Fixed a few things...

Changed some permissions so that any Authenticated (like, if you've created an account) person can add new News posts and Map posts.

Also, now everyone can see the Map.

And! Changed the limits on uploads so pictures can be uploaded by Authenticated roles.

HEY - read the Instructions, they're pretty detailed...
And email for help...

Hearing you give voice to your friends’ experience of landscapes brought this photo voice clip to mind by Heather Castledon. Have a look at:
