Last month I announced ten brand new courses. I just can't compete with one-month-ago-Dacien, as I only have four new courses ready this month. As announced earlier this week, Mirus is hard at work on a batch of shiny new Heraldy graphics courses, the first of which has gone through three name changes since Tuesday. Graphics in the Brotherhood lives in the Journeyman Hall and is graded quickly and ruthlessly by His Most Pitiless and Malevolent Meatbag Overlord, Professor dbb0t.
I'm also happy to announce -- finally -- that the audit of the Department of CORE Studies is complete! Yesterday Ood uploaded the revised and rewritten Sith, Obelisk, and Krath courses to the website. These are some of the oldest courses still offered by the Shadow Academy, and have existed in some form since well before I joined over a decade ago. Hopefully we've set them up to run well for at least a few more years! If you spot any problems with the new courses, please let us know so that we can fix them ASAP. Omega Kira pointed out a few significant technical errors and earned himself a Scroll of Foundation for his trouble.
...but I'm going to disappoint this time. The brand new Leadership Management course, planned to replace Leadership Studies and Leadership Fundamentals, is nearly ready but didn't make the cut for this month's report. Once it launches, I'll make a news post announcing changes to the Leadership degrees. I also plan to make some changes to the Tactics and Combat degrees after consulting with our brand new Voice (who also wrote a report), the Fist, and other people who shall remain nameless.
With CORE and Combat done for now (we're going to rewrite most of the courses from scratch), we're shifting our auditing attention to the Department of Writing Studies. Beyond fixing what's already there, we've started discussing a bunch of new ideas. More to come in future months -- any new courses aren't likely to appear here until after the Great Jedi War.
Since my last report, the top five exam takers at the SA are:
|Name||# of Exams|
|GRD Morathi Jadeonar||24|
|DJM Howlader Taldrya||23*|
|PRT Omega Kira||20|
|JK Sa Ool||15|
*This is not a typo.
Great work, everyone!
As always, I'd like to close this report by asking for your help. The SA is a massive wall of text that covers ever-shifting topics and is prone to typos and run-on sentences. If you spot substantive or grammatical problems, please let me, Ood, and the course PROF know so that we can fix them ASAP. As we work through the Departments during the audit, we're also going to be asking for help reading and editing -- if you have any particular expertise, let us know when we announce the next Department being audited. There are shiny things available. :P
