What To Do With All these Sites?
Summary

What is required of instructors?
  1. Most simply:   no course WEB site is required.
  2. The instructor must use BearFacts to submit grades to e-Grades.
  3. To replace the former course reader, just install the syllabus in EECS Inst.

  4. If an instructor takes no action, the default behavior of each site is:
    CourseWEB:   shows information about instructor and a link to EECS Inst  
    EECS Inst:   shows links to previous sites (archives.html)
    bSpace:   course is not found on the list that students can join
Recommended

  1. create the course site in EECS Inst
  2. use EECS Inst site for posting public content

  4. verify personal info in CourseWEB

  5. create a course site in bSpace
