Emailing the Instructor

Because I teach online classes and because I am bombarded by emails from a variety of sources, please help me keep track of emails from you by following this protocol:  In the subject line of the email message, include the course number, your full name, and an informative and commonsensical title.  Hopefully, this way your email will not be lost in the flood of messages I receive.  Here is an example:

Subject line:  E127 or E115/John Smith - Question on Paper #1
(Please do not send messages with blank subject lines!)
