Caveats of using vendor documentation
Before reading the vendor documentation, be aware of these caveats:
- The information is general in nature, and focuses on step-by-step processes rather than teaching best practices. This documentation may not address pedagogical considerations. Be conscious of the course design ramifications of using a tool or feature.
- Documentation may refer to tools or features that are not enabled at UWM. If you have questions, comments or would like access to a tool, contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. We may be able to accommodate requests, or provide alternatives.
