    Great story!

    This was the first time we had the idea to run a special topic under different pre-fixes for which it was relevant. By having this run as a 2930 class under DIG, JOU, and MUM prefixes, many more students found the course and the students were better able to learn from each other. Great cooperation from our colleagues in the Communications division…we couldn't be happier with the outcomes.
