May I use the assignments posted on your faculty resource pages?

Absolutely. We urge you to tailor the directions to fit your course outline and student needs.

How often is the faculty resource page updated?

Not often. The website was a one-time project built to support our department's philosophy.  If you discover broken links or missing items, please send an email to kland@chabotcollege.edu.  Last updated: December 14, 2012.
