In your course, you may be asked to participate in projects with
other students. It is possible that you will be placed in online
discussion groups where you will be expected to have meaningful dialogue
with a small number of other students in the course. It is also
possible that you will team with other members of the course to complete
an in-depth research project. If you encounter a peer group project
assignment in any module you are working through, please review the
instructions for the assignment very carefully. If you discover that
your class requires your participation in peer group projects, the
following information will be helpful for you to communicate with the
other members in your group(s).
