Make substantive contributions to the WebCT bulletin board discussions.

INTRODUCTION
The field of e-learning and multimedia project management is an evolving one wherein learning comes both from frequent review of the current literature and by sharing experiences and perspectives with other professionals in the field. This task is designed to allow you to engage in such activities through an asynchronous online learning environment.

TASK
1. Post responses incorporating your insights into the course readings and your experiences with course tasks. Your comments can be based on the questions posed by the instructor, mentors, and/or guest speakers as well as on comments made by your classmates on topics related to management of instructional technology projects. 

2. Contributions to online discussions can be made at anytime. The class will "meet" online every week, but hopefully your engagement in the online discussion will be evident throughout the semester. 

3. A sense of humor is welcome, but it is very important to treat others with courtesy and respect. 

This task is worth 15 points.
