While this will not be an official communication channel for the course, in the past it has proved to be a valuable system to issue occasional announcements quickly, and some students use that as a venue to ask questions in a manner that will be visible to other students. If you do use it for that purpose, I will try to answer in a timely fashion, but please make communications open so others can see my answers.
