      • Course announcements and course materials dissemination (e.g. canceling/postponing lectures/tutorials, uploading slides, assignments, etc.)
      • Collecting students’ opinions and feedbacks.
      • Sharing information (e.g. posting useful links).
      • Encouraging students’ interactions among them selves and between them and their instructor.
