At the end of each unit, at least one “creative” assignment will be given for grades and “points.”  Other topics may also be discussed at a student’s request; for example, plant life, Muggle animals, etc.   Discussions will take place in Prof. Dragonfly’s mIRC channel:  #opalcourses.   Students should join the web site ahead of class discussions so that they will be able to get into the chat site—they may also access the channel through the Home page of HOL.   In most cases, student homework submissions are posted on this web site’s course board so that all other students may learn from the submissions.
