CANVAS: Discussion Boards and NetTutor !
I donմ do much with Canvas, but a student discussion board and a NetTutor link are there.

Printing Suggestions for Typed Files
I recommend two-page-to-a-side and/or double-sided printing to save paper. Color printing is nice, but B&W printing is cheaper.
These are pdf files. You can get the free Adobe Reader at http://www.adobe.com . Get a version that is compatible with your system!
Syllabus (Fall 2023):
Many students benefit from printing the notes for a lecture beforehand, reviewing them, and commenting on them in class.
You may want to take personalized sketch notes in class.
For attribution, simply mention my name and/or web URL somewhere if you are using huge chunks of the notes. I simply want due credit.
