Blackboard Collaborate
We are preparing to move on to the wiki phase. Students now have access to their teams. As student leaders, please reach out to your teammates and introduce yourselves. The wiki phase of the project is critical as this is the time where students experience true global participation. Student participation is essential. Students leaders are vital in this process. Please be encouraging and motivational as you encourage others to participate and collaborate. REMINDER: All students should add their name linked to their ning profile page at the bottom of their profile page.

All student leaders need to begin their discussion threads. There should be one discussion thread per category on the topic page of the wiki. Student leaders should also begin an additional discussion thread introducing themselves.
