We are in the process of reviewing the site as part of our cycle for systematic quality enhancement of learning and teaching. We are also in the process of revising the site so that it is suitable for use as an open education resource (OER) with CC-BY-SA-NA licensing.

We hope other will be able to use and inform the continuous improvement of this site. Please email with any questions or comments!
