Becoming comfortable with this course, the online environment and resources at CGCC is critical to your success as a student! To have a little fun I have created a hunt around the course to help you navigate, interact with and find some important course information. Although I have asked you to find certain information, you should make sure you read and understand all the course Getting Started, Resource and Syllabus areas of the course.
Let's Get Hunting! Read through each piece of the hunt carefully and answer/complete the Hunt Challenges along the way.
