Posting Conventions


a) When posting documents, be sure to use footers with name, date, and other relevant identifying info:
For example, "Spanish 1, 2008, Cherice Montgomery, BYU." You could also include your email address so other users could consult with you.

b) When uploading files, name the document this way: last name + first initial_file name. For instance, fritzena_learningcenter.doc

c) Titles for page names must be five words or less.
