notes to Katie Rylander at Capstone.
Both the electronic version and the printed
version of your course's material will be created from the
material you deliver
to me. The print and electronic version of a course's notes
usually vary somewhat, because there are things that can be
delivered on CD-ROM that cannot be delivered in a print publication
- QuickTime movies, VRML worlds, and so on - and occasionally,
some material is better presented differently in print and
on CD-ROM: the printed version of a PowerPoint presentation,
for example, might better be presented two slides per page
with room for notes.
instructions which must accompany the files should clearly
indicate which files are to be used for the print version
and which for the electronic version.
