Communication Our main and most important way to communicate is The advantage of this forum is that anyone of this course has access to questions and answers that might come up in the course. I will mentor and guide these questions, provide answers if not already done by other students, and post information that is relevant for the course. Before emailing me with a question you should log in to the forum, check if that question might have already been asked by somebody else and then start a new thread. That way anybody who follows profits from this open discussion.
