I think a little bit of an explanation is warranted, given some of the confusion on the all of the outlets for information via various sources (Twitter, Facebook, the blog) and assignments. Here's the scoop.
1. The "Twitter" assignments stand - I'll be throwing out a fun question to respond to each week. These responses can come either over Twitter (@UEntomology) or via email.
2. The blog and Facebook page are meant to be tools for you guys to keep up on what's happening in class, what the upcoming discussion papers are and a repository for useful electronic media related to the class (handouts, my slideshows, etc.). Joining the Facebook group isn't required. It was suggested to be a few students that this might be a convenient alternative to the blog. I agree. All content will be mirrored.
