Hi everyone, 

Thanks for a dynamic class and awesome discussions so far! I hope it is as fun for you as it is for me! :) Some updates: 

- Videos/Slides: As mentioned, the videos/slides for each class are accessible through our Schedule and Materials page where, as an imperfect ICTD project, you will need to click again to get to our Google document for Schedule and Materials, and then again for the videos or slides.  This in part illustrates the importance of information architecture planning and user design. (In other words, I am still learning, within limited resources! :) )

- To date, in 4 lectures,  we have covered an overview of the course, as well as our first main topic: 'What is International Development' which covers the sub topics of 'Theories of International Development', 'Measurement of International Development', 'Does International Development Work?' and 'Careers in International Development'. 

- I hope you will bring up questions and discussions on our class (internal) Facebook pageTo join our FB page, our main discussion and announcement page, please visit the FB group URL and request to join. Please feel free to add other FB friends who might be interested in our course.

- If you are a virtual student, all you need to do is read the readings before class, and then view the post-class videos. Then start or join discussions in the FB page. You can also email me (instructor) for any concerns or questions. In addition you can opt to sign up to post blog posts

 - At some point, I will give more instructions about our public blog discussions (starting next week!).
