This will include tips on embedding videos on the home page, adding extra credit assignments to the gradebook, quizzing best practices and more.

So grab your lunch, and head over to CL-210 on Friday at 12 noon. If you have a few tips of your own to share with the group, all the better! This will be a fun and collaborative discussion.
