In Professors Jay Banner and Dave Allen’s UGS 303 “Sustaining a Planet”, students worked in groups to evaluate selected web sites and posted their evaluations to a discussion board in Blackboard. This exercise was managed by TAs within discussion sections. Librarians commented on the evaluations. Students also followed a current science topic in the news.
