I teach an upper-level college course in cell & molecular biology at a state four-year university. I have a small class every semester, only about 20 students. I made it a graded exercise this semester ( about 10% of final grade ) to create a SE account, send me their username and participate in Stack Exchange Bio. Otherwise gave them no other guidelines leaving it open ended.
I was wondering peoples opinion on this?
As I made it mandatory does this go against any guidelines of this forum?
Anyone done this before me & have any suggestions?
Had a lot of trouble finding tags for this question FYI
