and their Brownie Points price list

Evaluation is based on active participation; the computer keeps track, counting access, lectures "done", posts to the discussion forum, and a few more optional activities, plus the final term paper (key is submitting it, on time, end of June ?!).

The current student evaluation and standing is always accessible on-line ....
Brownie points: in modern usage are a hypothetical social currency, which can be acquired by doing good deeds.

  • The basics: register, submit a profile (fast, gets extra points)
  • Post to the discussion board (good); respond to a post (even better);
  • Visit the Seminar Home Page (and do something useful there ...)
