Thanks for the link to the University of North Carolina class. I am looking forward to exploring it more. I get super excited to think about students being able to tailor their own classes. I am not entirely sure how to reconcile that excitement with the reality of educational standards though.
For the record I am quite thankful you and George have left our projects in our own hands. I have learned way more in this course than I thought I would in a few months. It is easier for me to tell you what I think I have learned than for me to tell you my interpretations of what you think I should have learned (if that makes sense). I also would have been fine with a syllabus that was subject to change.
