Psychology Class

Here is the digital domain of the Psychology Class. Almost anything of a digital nature for the class can be found below. Things are generally arranged in the order in which they will be used. Links are subject to "decay" but might be useful to enquiring minds.

All class documents are produced using OpenOffice.org software, which is a free download, and useable on PC, Mac or Linux. You would be well advised to use storage that is transportable or off site rather than keeping things on your laptop or device. Lost documents are not an excuse for late work. Use iCloud, Google Drive or First Class to the fullest.
