Ask The Prof....
Similar to Coffee Talk Cafe`, Ask The Prof... is available to ask specific questions not appropriate for discussion in the Conferences.
The Query is located under the "Study Group" on the sliding "Class Menu" on the left hand side of your computer screen. Use the option just as you would use the "Conference" feature to post and respond to messages.
While most of your interaction should be conducted through the 'Conferences' section, there may be occassion to ask the instructor a specific question which you do not wish to share with your fellow classmates. You may also email the instructor directly.
