    As far as creating a hyperlink I figured out how to do it in a blog post itself but I’m still having trouble figuring out how to put a hyperlink in a comment. Google wasn’t much help. Any help would be greatly appreciated!:)

    For our weebly assignments, when it says to ‘refer to course materials,’ can we use materials from other weeks than the one in which it was assigned?

    Hey Taz,

    I forgot to site my sources at first in my activity post so I posted them as a comment on my actual post. Will that be okay?

      Hi Valencia – that should be fine as long as it is before the deadline. Next time, you can actually go back and edit your post and include your citations there – all you do is go back to the dashboard and under posts, click on edit. In case Nikki doesn’t see this comment and deducts points, you should send her an email explaining what you did.
