The course's blackboard site has the syllabus and readings. This site will be used to distribute free (open) content. We'll put links from the blackboard site to that content. So there is no compelling need for you to check this site on a regular basis. Later in the semester it may be more convenient to check here rather than blackboard because all of the open content will be linked from this single page.
The other reason for posting content here is to make it easier for other people to find.
