System Updates – New Features!

August 5th, 2010 Comments off

Greetings Participants and Guests,

We are excited to be adding new features to the site this week – including a new Alumni section where students and faculty can remain connected long after the courses are finished.

We hope to make the additions as painless as possible – but the site may be down from time-to-time.  Please be patient, we think you will be excited by the developments.
