Google Classroom privacy note:
We are using Google Classroom for this course to take advantage of its collaboration features. By default, each student’s first name and last name will be visible to other students in the class (email address and all other personal information remains hidden). If this bothers you, you can change your name display on your Google account or use another account with a screen name for the class. Instructions for both options will be provided with registration. I apologize for this inconvenience – I spent a lot of time researching alternatives and Google Classroom provides the best collaboration at a reasonable value. Any other option would increase the price of the course significantly.
