Yes there will be feedback provided after the first checkpoint. Remember I’ll be marking the first three posts as a whole rather than as individual posts so there is some room for variation in the amount of research/readings per blog entry. I’m not reading everyone’s post in depth now and commenting as that would be equivalent to proofing a draft which is not my job to do. Use your best judgement and ask your peers to comment on your posts if you think you are off track. I’m sure you aren’t.
With the quizzes, they are designed for you to complete while you are engaged with the readings and content for that topic. For your own sanity and time management, I’d recommend doing the quiz in the correct week while the content is fresh in your mind. Good luck!
