Mitch launches a discussion about the online-only 2020 convocation; initial responses indicate some of this year’s grads are feeling disappointed they won’t be able to attend a live event. Jennifer wonders where to find updates on courses that are temporarily closed; moments later, the link to the course availability list is posted. Kara is confused by a reference to Lotus Notes for an exam; responses clarify it’s one of the exam platforms AU uses (the other being Much Learning) and is not related to invigilation.
Other posts include selling textbooks, post-exam blues, student interviews, MAIS program, and transferring credits to other universities.
Among a flood of other posts, several involve ENGL courses 155, 211, 212, 255, and 305.
