MY BIG CAMPUS – www.mybigcampus.com My Big Campus will be used for communications and discussions for both groups and the instructor. Students need to add the group CBC McDowell and their register course (example: CBC Alg 1-1, CBC English 9-1, CBC Chem 1-1). The Group CBC McDowell will be used to communicate closings, delays, emergencies, deadlines and general discussions. The Group pages for the registered course/s will be used for questions, comments, and whole group discussions.
